Claudette had heard that Sanibel was the happening spot for shellers and she wasn’t disappointed when she was here in April. She and Karen found this OCTOPUS on the beach at night and said it was the talk of the beach for nights on end so she sent me this picture. I’ve seen quite a few octopuses (I always heard “octopi” as plural but I looked it up) get washed up with big shell piles but it’s not all that often….for me, anyway. They are fun little guys to see, huh? I hope he made his way back to the water.
Claudette also found this 8 3/4″ LIGHTNING WHELK. She said only a few “prongs” were sticking out so they dug around it and pulled out this beauty that was in great shape. Great finds and good fun!
