There was lots of Sanibel stooping going on at West Gulf Drive around Casa Ybel Resort. We have some shell piles back and there some good shell to find in there. I found myself some candy corn. I could just eat up those little bright orange HORSE CONCHS! They are just the cutest. I saw the other day, that Tink from MyMobileAdventures calls them mac and cheese. Pretty yummy too!
I could not believe how many WHELK EGG CASINGS there were on the beach. Every 5 steps there was another one…then another one….then another one. I’m not sure if that is bad news for WHELKS or just good news for good shelling in the next few days. Let’s hope for good shelling!
I was out on Longboat Key and found a couple Whelk eggs. My question is, how would I preserve them if I wanted to take one home?
I’ve lived here 20yrs and never saw one before!
Thanx and Btw, LOVE your page! (:
Christina, Im not sure if you need to do anything else to them. Bt if you want to… I guess you could soak them in 1/8 bleach to water over night like we do other shells- then let them naturally dry.
