I enjoyed the water from last week’s post One Picture, A Million Words so much that I couldn’t resist taking this photo yesterday of this fisherman at Blind Pass on Captiva too. It’s like stepping into postcard perfect aqua water. There weren’t as many shells in the water but there is still a big pile with AUGERS, SCALLOPS, MUREXES and CONCHS on the beach. The real show stopper was the color and clarity of the water that made my heart melt.
All of the shells I’ve found lately have been alive. Yay for the mollusks… but no shell collecting for me in the past few visits to the beach. Maybe tonight I’ll have a shell report. For now you can sit back, look at this sparkling water on your desk or table, enjoy this refreshing photo and feel that water lap up on your ankles.
Absolutely beautiful! We only left there last Wednesday and it feels like we’ve been gone much much longer! Oh, the agony!!! :-). Thanks Pam!
I’ve had several challenges lately that have kept me away, but I haven’t been too far. My friend that lives down that way called and we had a lovely conversation about your fabulous photos!
I love hearing that you are finding so many live shells. I was at Neptune Beach over the weekend (next to Jax Beach) and there were actually some shells. Nothing to write home (or blog) about, but it was nice to walk the beach and inspect the offerings from the Atlantic. It will never come close to rivaling The Gulf, but it was a nice morning at the beach.
I’m having a giveaway, so stop by when you get a chance. HInt: Something for the beach, nice to have after a long walk.
