  1. Hi, Pam. Do you have any experience shelling the beaches around the panhandle of Florida. I love Sanibel, but can’t make it there as much as I’d like because of the trek. The panhandle is much closer for me. I was curious about Port St. Joe, FL or any other areas in and around the panhandle. Any information you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks a bunch,
    April Cusimano

    • HI April, I wish had had information for you but we have never shelled there before. Its funny you ask because that has been on my husband Clark’s radar about going there. Sorry I can’t help but maybe someone else reading this will be of some help. fingers crossed

  2. Hi Pam! I love your website and I love Sanibel. My family have made Sanibel an annual trip – we LOVE shelling! However, I and one of my children get bitten extremely bad by the no-see-um bugs. Do you have any advice on what we can use when are at the beach?


    • There are a few No-see-um repellents on the market in our local stores and outdoor restaurants and each one works differently on every individual so you might have to try and test. I used to take a benedryl every night and I wasn’t affected by the bites as I am now (someone told me it wasn’t good for me to take it every day- who knows… but I stopped any way) so maybe that may help to start taking it a few days before you get here and through the time you are here- please ask you doctor if thats ok- Im no doctor and I don’t like suggesting medications to anybody but I know how bad the no-see-ums can be. Hope this helps!

  3. Good Morning Pam!
