It’s 49 degrees and I can’t believe I think this feels nice compared to the winds by the water. On the beach, it was mid 40s and the wind chill felt like 30 but I’m so glad I was fortunate enough to dig for shells instead of digging out a snowy driveway.
I got a phone call this morning from a friend, John, who got to Captiva early this morning to find a bare beach. He then headed to the Lighthouse to find about the same thing…no good shelling.
So Clark and I headed to West Gulf #6 after catching George Clooney’s new movie Up In The Air at the Island Cinema (it was pretty good…..but no Academy winner).
Clark met Judy on this new shell pile that just formed around West Gulf parking access #4 and found out the she has found a total of 13 JUNONIAS. That’s thiiirteeenn! She didn’t find much out there today but she only picks up the cream of the crop. She was out there on that sand bar (shell bar) getting her little white tennis shoes, socks and pants soaking wet……with that wind chill of 30s. She’s a trooper….along with Clark too. Yep, I’m a wimp when it comes to the cold and maybe that’s why I haven’t found my JUNONIA yet. Like Jane from Virginia said “We should get extra credit for just being out here today”.
