Some days, even if the shelling isn’t fantastic, are still good beach days…..like today. I had a shelling “date” with my friend Celeste since we both seem to always miss each other with our busy lives. She makes fun, colorful pottery which includes her oh-so-fun mushrooms, flowers and critters. Check her website out- http://www.etsy.com/shop/thebohemianmushroom You’ll see why she’s so busy! Here are a few pieces.
So we stuck to our beach plan today and went to Blind Pass for our first stop. We only saw lots of bleached out clams and scallops so we hopped back in the car and headed for West Gulf Drive after lunch. West Gulf Drive had some better shell lines with a few LIGHTNING WHELKS, an OLIVE, and CONCHS so we were very happy that we found some keepers. We hit lots of other spots on Sanibel but our treasures (and only a few) were from West Gulf Drive area. We might not have found tons of shells to bring home with us but it was a wonderful day to spend time with a friend.
