Top of the Sanibel mornin’ to ya!
It’s always a lucky day just to have the time to walk the beach… but it’s a very lucky day if you find a couple of WENTLEPTRAP shells.
Paula brought down some Luck O’ the Irish from Boston to find a few O’wentles near the Sanibel lighthouse and pier – along with a few other sweet minis.
Did someone have to kiss the Blarney Stone to find a whole handful of O’wentles like this?
We can ask Deenie since this handful was hers. Wait a minute. Deenie is from Massachusetts too. Hmmmmm….
I danced a little jig to find a few of my own plus I found a LINED TREE SNAIL, a violet tinted juvie FIGHTING CONCH and a double ALTERNATE TELLIN to name a few.
While we were finding our Pots of O’Wentle Gold, I was green with envy to know that Bruce from Chicago found a JUNONIA at Blind Pass Sanibel a few days ago.
Happy Shell Paddy’s Day!
PS… I believe the WENTLETRAP at the top of Deenie’s hand is a BLADED WENTLETRAP along with a few others but most of the others are ANGULATE. Deenie was very excited that a few days ago she found her first BROWN BANDED WENTETRAP so we talked about that top one being different as well. I realized that I never added the BLADED to my lineup of WENTLETRAPS on my post How To Find Wentletrap Shells so I’ll update that soon so we can see the differences.Read More
Top of the mornin’ to ya! Wouldn’t you feel luckier seeing a “Four Cleat Plover” rather than a “Four Leaf Clover”? Well, I did!
I felt lucky and charmed when I spotted this cutie little SNOWY PLOVER while walking the beach at Gulfside City Park. Ok, maybe one doesn’t normally call his four little toes on each foot “cleats” but for the sake of St Paddy’s day, I’m taking creative license with this one. heehee
May your day be filled with luck and charm as well! Happy St Patricks Day!
Our iLoveShelling cruise to Cayo Costa was EXSHELLENT yesterday! I’ll have photos coming up soon but until then I have one more lucky charm… here’s a four leaf clover too!
