We are so thankful we had an amazing shelling cruise today! The assortment of shells found on our iLoveShelling cruise to Big Hickory wit Sight Sea-R Cruises this morning was mind blowing. These are just a few of the different gems found by Linda, Eliana Nik. Happy!
We had a downpour of rain all last night in Sw Florida with strong, cold winds blowing from the north but by the time we boarded our boat, the weather was safe and calm. Perfect for us when we reached the island to find the storm had blown all kinds of shells and beach bling on to the beach.
Paula from California didn’t mind the air was a bit chilly…
… Since she scored with shells like this!
Maribeth, Tristan and Lynne drove down from Orlando to enjoy the thrill of boating to this secluded island to fill their shell buckets.
I peeked inside Maribeth’s bucket to see 2 ALPHABET CONES, GAUDY NATICA, KINGS CROWN, SUNRAY VENUS, TULIPS, MUREXES and so many more cool shells. Love it!
Phil and Carol (WI) were thankful for those winds too…
Three ALPHABET CONES, WORMIES, SHARKS EYES, NUTMEGS and ANGEL WINGS. If you look closely at the ANGEL WING on the bottom, you’ll see that Carol wanted to save this one especially since it has a perfect “heart”in it.
Margie has got an eye for ALPHIES too.
Look at her harvest!
Sisters Janet and Carolyn (MA) with niece Lauren and her dad Cory (MD) found some amazing shells too.
Lauren found this spectacsheller TRUE TULIP.
They all found SAND DOLLARS but these were Janet and Carolyn’s best finds.
Shelly was happiest with her mini shells finds…
Sweet arrangement along with two COFFEE MELAMPUS shells.
Locals Donna and Mary (AKA Shelly and MeShell) found some treasures…
I was thrilled to see that Donna showed me an immature NICKERBEAN SEA POD with a green SEA PEARL inside. It’s so beautiful!
Chris, Heather (OH), Steve, Terry and Judy (TX) said they had a good time too.
Heather found this huge SHARKS EYE, CONES, fab juvie LACE MUREX and we all looked at the OYSTER SHELLS a little differently after someone said they collected “dinosaur feet” for their son. Cute!
Emily, Zach and Airon found even more ALPHABET CONES and goodies while on the cruise.
It was so nice to meet lots of shelling families…
They even ended up shelling together. Good for you Sam and Timothy!
I’m so thankful I got to meet so many fun shellers that don’t mind a little cool weather in Florida. They know cold weather brings the shells!
