I had to go back to the beach again last night around 6 o’clock to show Clark all of the amazing shells that were washing up on the beach by Casa Ybel Resort. It looked completely different from around noon when I took the pictures for yesterday’s blog. No big shell piles but shells galore spread out like an easter egg hunt.
Janene , Jaelyn (her daughter) and Nora (her niece) found a great spot to just sit and dig around in the watery sand. Can you believe they found all of those goodies in that one spot? Nora even found a BABY’S EAR too. Janene told me that they were were making necklaces, shell boxes and a mirror with all of their found shells on this trip. Janene is a 3rd generation Sanibel sheller which makes Jaelyn a 4th generation Sanibel sheller. Sounds like a happy family to me…and a happy birthday for Janene!
I think we saw at least 12 live HORSE CONCHS in the shallow water but we did get to take one home that didn’t have an occupant…..nice, huh?
