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…
#1 Favorite !!!!! (Of Course, right?!!!)
These were my favorites, what was your fave iLoveShelling post of 2011?
As the sun begins to set on Sanibel 2011…. beautiful reflections.
Ahhhhh. The shell pile is back again at Blind Pass Captiva.
In less than 5 minutes, here’s what I found….
This is what shellers’ dreams are made of.
Sittin’ N Siftin’…
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.
Just to have the shell pile back was good enough for me. Oh how i Love Shelling!Read More
Walking out on the beach before sunrise is a special feeling. It has an extra special feeling when it is a very low tide of -1.0 AND it’s Christmas weekend.
I thought my eyes hadn’t focused when I took this next photo of Clark. Whatever happened to it (too early in the morning?)… I’m so glad! It came out like a beautiful impressionist painting…
As the sun was rising near the Sanibel lighthouse, the sky turned golden…
We saw lots of live shells and washed up sea life like this poor LINED STARFISH that took a beating but wouldn’t give up despite losing all of its arms. It survived al of the elements and started growing each of its arms back. What a survivor!
And you thought all SEA PORK was ugly, right? Well look again! This one looks just like an orange with its bright orange peel.
My best find was this rich in color nice sized TRUE TULIP…
Clark had the find of the day with this WAY cool tiny shell I have never identified before. It’s a COFFEE BEAN TRIVIA…
We both tried to rub off those brown smudges…HA! Silly us, those brown spots are part of the shell! That would be like trying to rub off the spots off a JUNONIA or SCOTCH BONNET. Silly!
Hmmmm…. whaddaya think? Look like coffee beans to you?
