Every day Maria and Rick go to a different beach when they are staying in their Cape Coral place for a getaway from Chicago. Today they chose Blind Pass to set up their camp of beach chairs, towels, cooler, paperbacks and everything else for the day. They also had their stash of very colorful CALICO SCALLOPS that they found today. Sounds like a good way to spend a get-away to me!
There is a shell pile about 100 yards into Captiva from the jetty that formed last week and there are still shells to be found. The CALICO SCALLOPS still have their beautiful colors of bright purple or orange and there are CALICO CLAMS still there too.
I also saw a line of pen shells forming on the shorline so this might be a good sign that we might be getting a new batch of piles in the next few days.
