I walked down to the shoreline at Blind Pass to see that the sand had filled in all the way to the end of the jetty. This is where the shells usually build up if they are coming in but nothing today…..until I looked about 100 yards to the right on the shoreline and I saw people doing the”Sanibel Stoop”. I raced down to see a beautiful brand new pile of shells and bent down only after 5 minutes to find a gorgeous FLORIDA CONE.
Richene and Pat already had shell bags filling with really nice LETTERED OLIVES, TULIPS, MUREXES, CALICO SCALLOPS, CALICO CLAMS, WHELKS, CONCHS and lots of other goodies. They said they have been coming to Fort Myers for 8 years and both love the shelling on the Sanibel and Captiva beaches, love the walks on the beach and love how beautiful is it. They both seem to know what the art of shelling is all about.
