This was what it looked like a few evenings ago at Blind Pass on the Sanibel side when the tide was nice and low. There were quite a few people out on the sand bars finding nice shells and enjoying the beautiful sunset.
The biggest find we saw from the afternoon (early evening) was by Derek (MI).
It was a beautiful LIGHTNING WHELK! Nice find Derek! He said he saw something bright white just sitting there in the shallow water and just reached down to pull this up.
Derek’s family was there to oooh and ahhhh over his loot.
Kristen found a perfect keeper SAND DOLLAR and her husband Josh was finding lots of FIGHTING CONCHS, COCKLES and OLIVES.
She also found a live STARFISH that she returned safely to the shallows.
They found so much they had to stash all of their goodies in an empty cooler.
Native Sanibelian Scott (now living in Costa Rica) found a piece of JUNONIA….
At low tide, you can now walk out pretty far again on the Sanibel side of Blind Pass to find FIGHTING CONCHS, WHELKS, OLIVES and COCKLES. But of course that is this week…who knows what next week will bring.
