Shellzam! Super Sheller Clark found an incredishell 11 inch LIGHTNING WHELK this weekend.
All along the Sanibel shoreline from Blind Pass to Bowman’s Beach, there were strings of shells lining the beach just waiting to be picked through. Looking at this next photo, Clark found his WHELK around the furthest point in the background while in knee deep water… half buried in the sand. He said he only saw 1/4 of it. Oh yaya!
I could tell there had already been lots of people that had picked through this pile (but they missed so many!).
These were just some of the shells from this pile and along the shoreline…
These are a few of their faves… CONCHS, WHELKS, TULIPS, OLIVES, MUREXES and SCALLOP shells.
Kathy and Angie visiting from PA were just as happy too..
These are my favorite kind of evenings… beach combing at sunset.
Espeshelly when when we get to bring home one of these big bad trophies- way to go Clark! Boom Shellalaka!
Shellebrate this beautiful day…
In this glorious time…
Of this colorful life.
Even though we aren’t wearing our usual tee shirts and shorts here on Sanibel Island because of this cold 40 degree weather, walking the beach warms the soul.
“Espeshelly” since cold weather brings shells!
Sanibel Lighthouse beach has load of shells washing up about a half a mile west of the Lighthouse.
There were lots of live CONCHS… and lots of empty ones too but my fave was this empty sweet striped PEAR WHELK.
There were shells starting to come in at Island Inn Sanibel too (my second picture from the top)
There were also shells starting to come in at Blind Pass too (CLICK HERE for map)
Were you hoping for a video to warm you up? You Got It! I walked down the beach on the gulf side of the Sanibel Lighthouse….ummmm… maybe about 1/2 mile west or so. I mostly found empty minis (like the 3rd photo) in the washed up shell lines and live FIGHTING CONCHS and STARFISH (like the first photo) in the water near the Lighthouse but when I walked further down the beach I found this…
One more photo to sooth the soul… The evening warmth of shelling at Blind Pass at sunset last night.
