National Seashell Day on June 20!
Shellzam! I am sooooo excited to have an official day to shellebrate our greatest obsession … seashells. So when I heard the good folks of Lee County Visitors Bureau were going to officially proclaim that every June 20th of each year would be National Seashell Day, I joined them at the courthouse donned in my JUNONIA costume and loudly sounded my CONCH horn to shellebrate this awesome day. haha
Oooohhh and we have so many surprises for June 20th too. The biggest one?
Ginger Zee with Good Morning America will be here for the shellaganza!
Can you believe it? She’s on Dancing With The Stars this season as well – isn’t she so dang cute? Of course we have some spectacsheller events planned to welcome her and everybody at Good Morning America.
To start off the Shellebration… a GIVEAWAY! Check out the Shell Yeah Sweepstakes, y’all. Enter to win a 3 night’s stay on Sanibel, a shelling cruise with Captiva Cruises and you will get a personal shelling tour with me (Pam Rambo) on one of our beaches. Boom Shellalaka! To enter CLICK HERE…
Ok and there’s one more HUGE fabshellous project I’m working on using lots and lots of seashells .
So stay tuned…. We will unveil this big, huge shellmongus seashell “sculpture” on June 20th …. National Seashell Day!

Wouldn’t you like to wake up to see this shell filled beach view for 5 nights on Sanibel?
To help shellebrate our iLoveShelling 5 year Shellaversary last week, Island Inn Sanibel was gracious enough to give away 5 nights stay for two people at their beautiful beachfront resort to drink in this view and experience this amazing place. By computer random pick, the shellucky winner has been chosen!
Drum Roll please….
The winner is …. Cynthia S. From Nahunta, Georgia! Congratshellations Cynthia, You will have a blast!
Seriously, Thank you Island Inn for your continued support to our fab shelling community.
Ooooo ya, and that’s not all… I have other fun news too. On Saturday December 6, I get to pick a different kind of winner because I have been selected to be a judge for the 2014 Captiva Holiday Village Golf Cart Parade. It’s the cutest little holiday parade you’ve ever seen- I’m so excited! For the last several years Clark and I have participated in our own golf cart, the Junonia Jalopy.
So Yes, I get to be a judge this year… but hold on… You get to be a judge too! This year the committee has invited YOU to judge this year’s parade with awarding one cart with a People’s Choice Award. A photo of each cart will be taken at check-in and posted to Facebook.com/CaptivaGolfCartParade so you can choose your fave decorated golf cart through Friday, Dec. 12 then a winner will be chosen from your votes. Fun, huh?
Come join us for a really fun day for the parade, awards and then that same evening we celebrate Captiva Luminary. The whole island of Captiva is lit up with the holiday spirit with restaurants, retailers and all business open their doors serving holiday cheer and sounds of carolers on every corner.
Want more holiday cheer? The holiday festivities actually start on Friday night with Sanibel’s luminary with Periwinkle Way lined with glowing candles. If you’ve never seen Sanibel and Captiva during December, it warms the heart.
Wanna stay for a few days? Come on, join the festivities! Here are my hotel recommendations along with some condos and cottages as well… CLICK HERE
