I’m hoping this is the calm before the storm. Ida is now a tropical depression and has exited the Gulf of Mexico. She never came close to Southwest Florida but I’m not giving up hope that shells were stirred up and are headed our way. In the mean time, there’s just sand in Captiva and I’m heading out to check out Sanibel but I haven’t gotten any good reports from my shelling friends so I’m not expecting much. Tomorrow. I’m hoping tomorrow.
