I was so surprised to see that the Sanibel side of Blind Pass had such a pile of shells. Look at them all! Most of the shells were clams, scallops and bits and pieces of shells but we all found treasures to be proud of.
I saw a few bright orange scallops but one really caught my eye….this gorgeous ROUGH SCALLOP.
Katie found a few really good ones…including a little candy (juvenile HORSE CONCH) and a FLORIDA CONE. Check out her shell bag (taking this photo of her shells through her bag got me a little tickled- not sure why, just not my ordinary shot)
Lara and her family from Maine were collecting just about anything to take back to a kids camp for shell crafting.
I saved the best for last…..WORM SHELLS (hmm…ok, candies are right up there too, right LooLoo?) These are the little tiny ones that still have the white tips on them (like the candy corn!) and have such cool twists and turns to them. They look like a mermaid’s lock of hair, don’t they?
