Life on a tropical island is magical. Our skies change from blue to pink to orange to grey any given moment bringing rain showers to cool off from the heat of the day which produce rainbows and picturesque reflections.
Milt and Jenna from New York found about the same sweet little minis I found walking toward the lighthouse.
If you were lucky like Bryce from Kansas, you could find TULIPS and WHELKS half buried around those old concrete slabs. (For the history of those slabs CLICK HERE)
Hmmm…. I don’t think Bryce was the only lucky one. I’m sure everybody who sees beauty like this feels very lucky.

I’ve been so amazed with Gulfside City Park beach in the last months, I’ve shunned my long time fave beach… Sanibel Lighthouse. Please forgive me, Lighthouse Beach? I think she knew it wasn’t an intentional cold shoulder so she forgave me by scattering a few WENTLETRAPS along a BUBBLE SHELL filled shoreline.
She really made me put my nose to the grind-sand but knew I wouldn’t give up quickly. Aha… another one.
After satisfying my shellove of the hunt, I put a few treasures in my pocket…
I walked on the Sanibel pier so I could breathe in more of the view of my old dear friend. Peace.
My company felt the same.
Cue the soft sweet music….. then…. the record scratch…. rrrrriiiiip! Yes, the beach walk this morning was very quiet and calm but last night was another story. Cue the dance music!
It was a parrrtaaay. Y’all know my husband Clark is a do-gooder, right? He’s always doing good deeds for his Rotary Club events but this is another group he’s involved in… Sunshine Kids. Last night we went to a fundraising party for this awesome organization raising money to help children with cancer so I donated a few of my fine art photographs on canvases to help raise a few bucks. At the end of the night, Clark saw actor Tony Denison from TNT’s hit show “Major Crimes” carrying my art. Wow! He out-bidded everybody else on my piece and is taking it home to L.A. with him. We love Major Crimes show so it was fun to meet him in person to see how generous and passionate he is about helping Sunshine Kids. Thanks Tony, we are thrilled!
If you are in SW Florida this week, join me Wednesday November 26, 2014 on our next iLoveShelling Shelling Adventure… a cruise at low tide to shell the secluded island of Big Hickory. CLICK HERE for more info.
Low tide isn’t the only game in town when it comes to beach combing. For us, the best time to shell is whenever we have an hour or more of free time. This weekend that free time ended up to be early evening (my fave time of the day) at high tide.
Long walks on the beach are always lovely, but to find sweet little shell treasures along the way… that’s priceless.
I loooove to sort through the high weak line among the SEA WEEDS and SEED PODS… ooooohhh… a SEA PEARL!
And more little beach treasures near the Sanibel Lighthouse…
The beach was Bubblicious! There were thousands of BUBBLE SHELLS lining the beach.
There are always little surprises on the beach whenever you take the time to look … whatever the tide may be.
Coming soon… (just a few more details) and then new Shellabaloo dates!
