Pam Rambo Films Shell Collecting

Boom Shellalaka! It was so stinkin fun to see this spectacsheller empty HORSE CONCH wash up with the tide… but to actually film the whole thing on video so you can see exactly what I experienced? A-mazing! It was like an out of body experience to know I would be able to relive it again too.

I told y’all the story about my fab find on my last post (CLICK HERE) but it took a while to get the video downloaded … But with pershellverance, its up and running. I know, I know… its long (over 6 minutes) but I didn’t edit anything or make it shorter so you could see all the other cool stuff that washed up … And… to show you that if I didn’t take a minute to enjoy watching the birds, I would have missed it entirely! Thank you for being so adorable, Ms. WILLET and Mr RING-BILLED GULL, you lead me to my prize find.

Enjoy your beach walk with me and have fun finding a surprise shell!YouTube Preview Image

calm day at the beach

With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s nice to have just a calm quiet moment on the beach.

Finding a few shells along the way makes the moment even more special.

Running across creative seashell beach art is the icing on the caked sand.

Fabio M. posted a picture on the iLoveShelling Facebook page of their exshellent Sanibel version of a Snow Globe. Fabio and his wife made Sandy the Shellman (his new name!) mostly out of ARKS, CALICO SCALLOPS, DOSINIAS, SLIPPERS,and JINGLES… and a PEN SHELL nose.

After admiring their beach art masterpiece, I made up a song to commemorate Sandy The Shellman…

 Sandy, the Shell Man was so happy he could yell

With a SLIPPER scarf and a PEN shell nose

And two eyes of JINGLE shells

O, Sandy the Shell Man

Was alive on Sanibel

On this sunny day, he could laugh and play

As we all do as we shell.

Their seashell beach art warms the heart…

I hope they don’t mind but it looks like the Seashell Fairy left a few additions to their art.

Coquinas on the beach

Like many other shellers, my first memories of shelling were being mesmerized with the colors of COQUINAS. “Butterfly” shells. I can get lost for hours in a small stretch of beach sorting through pink, yellow, red, orange, purple and striped COQUINAS. This is exactly what happened last night at Sanibel’s Gulfside City Park. Something happens to the rest of the world. I’m not sure where it goes but it disappears when I see these little beauties as I wonder how each one can look like they’ve been hand painted by thousands of different artists.

The only thing that can snap me out of my world of seashell wonder is another extraordinary event… like an OSPREY plopping down his dinner feast on the same stretch of beach.

It’s not often an OSPREY will get so close to us on the beach with his meal but I think this fish was about to wiggle its way out of the grips of this hungry predator. I’m assuming Mr Osprey had to land his catch on the beach to get a better grip so he wouldn’t lose this tasty dinner. Whatever the reason, Clark and I were thrilled to see this OSPREY show and I figured you might want to see it too! Enjoy the quick OSPREY show…
