Whew, I survived a camping/shelling trip with the girls on the island of Cayo Costa this past weekend. We were lucky enough to have a nice cool breeze so we didn’t roast in our cabin and to keep away the bugs. Yep, I said “cabin”….. we didn’t have to pitch a tent. We had 6 girls, 5 lanterns, 4 coolers, 3 fires (intentional), 2 boats (the only way to get there) and 1 heck of a good time. We didn’t bring back full buckets of shells but we did find some treasures. Our best finds…Diane and I found BABY’S EARS , Lisa and Rhonda found SAND DOLLARS, Beth found URCHINS, and Chris found OLIVES. There were lots of FIGHTING CONCHS, SUNRAY VENUS CLAMS, and COCKLES to go around too.
We met Bob and Terry from Cape Coral who were finding tons of SHARK’S TEETH. They gave us tips on finding them….look for small black triangles. I found one! Thanks, Bob and Terry!
Looks like a fun weekend. I’d love to get out to Cay Costa while we are there.
What a fun weekend for you ladies!! I’m in awe of your gigantic baby’s ear. That was one truly fabulous find.
Wonderful shot of the 4 girls at sunset! Where are the cabins and the ranger station located?
The cabins are on the north end of the island about 50 yards from the gulf. The ranger station is on the bay side with a little marina on the north end as well. They have a shuttle (feels like a hay ride) to get you and your supplies to the cabin area or the campground (to pitch a tent) which takes about 10 minutes.
What a great pic of all of you,looks like you all had a blast!!! :) So many treasures ,we hope to find some this weekend even if it’s suppose to rain a little.
What cool shell displays they have there!!
camping outdoors is one of my favorite, it is quite relaxing to be with friends.’~~
what a great adventure! I love the shell pics as well as all your Cayo Costa pics… have not been there yet but hope to soon… what a great picture of such happy friends– very blissful!
