My Top 10 Most Fave Posts Of 2011! 

Happy New Year’s Eve! It’s been an amazing year on the beach so I thought I’d look back on all of my favorite posts of 2011. I realized not all of my favorite days were completely about seashells. Some of my favorite days of 2011 have been about the wildlife I’ve experienced because of my obsession (ha!) passion for shelling. So I’m starting with #10 then counting down to my number ONE favorite post. I bet you guess what that will be- heehee. Click on each title or photo to read each post…

 I also have to point out that crazy cloud in this next photo. It was one big streak that stretched all the way across the sky. No other clouds… just that big tube cloud. My friend Ellen called me and left a message on my phone a few minutes later “Did you see that big crazy cloud in the sky?”.

I found everything but a CONE to make my Sanibel Six.
