Big Day for ShellersBy
I just can’t even find the words to explain how much fun the shelling has been the last few days. I think I’ll just post the pictures since I can’t even name all of the shells that were being found at Blind Pass on the Captiva side…..and they are still coming in.
Earlier today, Clark and I checked out the beach right of Beach Rd ( locals “A” parking sticker required) since we couldn’t find a parking spot at any of the Lighthouse parking lots. I’m so glad I met Jan and her son Peter since I got some tips on finding a JUNONIA. Peter found a 3 1/2 inch JUNONIA on friday morning at 4:30 in the morning at low tide. He says that he uses a halogen flashlight because the shells show up so much better. Jan has been shelling for 40 years on Sanibel and has never found a JUNONIA so she was very excited for him. Congrats, Peter!
PS and FYI- Please remember that you can not have any lights on the beach when we are in turtle season May through September. Please respect the turtles!
