Beach combing is a time to feel free, find respect and to share memories.

If you can’t enjoy beach combing for Memorial Day this year, I’d like to bring it to you with a stroll on the beach at South Seas Island Resort

Thankful for shelling in Southwest Florida

We found a buffet of seashells at Blind Pass Captiva this morning for our Thanksgiving feast! I’d like to invite you to join us at our shell feast with some Thanksgiving Day CYBERSHELLING! If you like to stay dry doing the Sit ‘N Sift, here’s a shot of the shells on top of one of the piles. It’s completely random so I’m really not sure of whats in here so I hope you find something you like!

I snapped this next photo just before the waves came crashing down on the shells that just washed up. I only had a split second to scan it but you can take all the time you want. Ready to get your toes wet? Gobble ‘em up!

We hope you are enjoying your day with friends and family or having a great time relaxing with the TV marathons or doing whatever gives you peace and thankfulness. Want more beach time? I’ve got so many more photos to show you from today’s shell cornucopia (Shellucopia) that will have to wait another day but for now… YouTube Preview Image

Join me on a Shelling Adventure!…

Our Sanibel and Captiva beaches were pounded by 4 to 6 foot waves for three days because of high northwest winds from Hurricane Sandy so I assumed we would have lots of shells at Blind Pass Sunday morning at low tide. I was wrong… so I kept moving.

Gulf Side City Park showed promise!

It’s always a good sign to see PEN SHELLS! They get washed up first in a good storm so you know that there are better collectable shells on the way. I was lucky to see a SEA WHIP caught in this group of PEN SHELLS. I love these purple ones.

After walking east only 1/4 mile, we found a nice shell pile!

My first find… a beautiful dark WORMIE!

Are you ready to go shelling? Okay, then… Let’s go CYBER SHELLING! Click on the next photo to enlarge this random photo I took of the shell pile. Notice how many beautiful SCALLOPS there are…

 I think today will be even better but I’ll never know until I get there. As we all know, the beach changes every single day but I think Blind Pass will take another day to load up with shells so I’m headed back to one of Sanibel’s mid island beaches…. like Gulf Side City Park again.

Hurricane Sandy may be bringing us a few new shells to get excited about but we are very worried about all of you and our families that are up north bracing for Sandy and the “Super Storm” (as they are calling it). Please be safe!
