“I was just looking for a certain type of shell and it caught my eye and I just thought ‘oh wow’!” Halkerston told SWNS.
“There wasn’t a mark on it, it wasn’t even dirty or chipped and it’s probably been in the sea for years and years,” 彼女は付け加えた. “I was really shocked and surprised. My husband was with me and helps me with glass and shells but I told him I’d found a Frozen Charlotte and he was like ‘what?'”
According to SWNS, the doll is called a Frozen Charlotte, which is based on a 19th–century American folk tale about a woman who refuses to dress warmly on her trip to a New Year’s Eve ball — despite her mother’s wishes — and freezes to death on the 20-mile journey.
