Being away from Sanibel for even just a few days makes me appreciate every single grain of sand, every petal of each flower, every splash of water lapping up on all of our shell filled beaches. My home sweet home to handfuls of shells…

I couldn’t wait to get my feet on the beach to enjoy my favorite place of peace. While on the Sanibel side of Blind Pass this morning, I met Bonnie from Maryland who showed me her FLORIDA CONE and the rest of her awesome shells she collected (above photo). Then I met Carol from Texas with her shirt filled with treasures…

She said she was extremely happy to be in Sanibel where there are shells to be found. Me too, Carol!

 I always love being with my family in Virginia Beach… but there’s no place like Sanibel.

There’s no place like home in paradise.

Oh but wait… there’s more. I went over to the Captiva side of Blind Pass too to find beautifully clear water and an “OLIVE garden”! I took a little video of some of the LETTERED OLIVES I found and just how peaceful the beach was… even when the helicopter flew by. Our mosquitos are controlled with spraying from a helicopter… so that’s always a happy site to see. Enjoy the peace, beach, water and shells!
