Collecting seashells on the beaches of Sanibel, Captiva and the world

Colors of the Rainbow

Sunset over Sanibel homes

We left the beach empty handed tonight but as you see it was beautiful on the east end of Sanibel……although, I heard more than once that last night was even more beautiful. Several people told me that as the sun was setting, the full moon was rising over the water AND at the same time……a rainbow! Really??? We missed it!

Local artist Luc and Dee from Sanibel Captiva Conservation Foundation told me about the sky we missed last night and that they found a live ALPHABET CONE last night too right around the same area we were standing. So lo and behold, as I was wading through the water to catch up with Clark to leave…..I saw a live alphabet cone. It had to be the same one.

Live Alphabet Cone

You can barely see him but I saw his tracks in the shallow water so I knew he was alive. I picked him up (they aren’t poisonous) only long enough to take the picture and show Clark then put him back where we found him. That was like finding a needle in a haystack to find the same cone! It makes me feel a little better about missing the moon and rainbow show last night (just a little).
