The COQUINAS are starting to show up all over the islands. They are so small, colorful and look just like a beautiful butterfly. I found this yellow one pictured on the left and the red one pictured below on the Sanibel side of Blind Pass.
When I got home, Jane emailed me this picture of lots of beautiful COQUINAS that she found at the Lighthouse (I’m assuming that’s where she found them) this morning. Look at all of the different colors! And some look like sunbursts.
She wrote in her email “It was a COQUINA kinda day at the beach”. You are right, Jane. We were on opposite ends of the island and we saw the same shells come in.
