If this isn’t a sign, I don’t know what is. We headed down to beach access #7 on West Gulf Drive again this morning and in just a couple of minutes I plucked this FLORIDA CONE out of the surf….. and Clark found me a watch! haha He scooped it up out of the surf only a minute after I found the cone. It’s still working! Long story but my nice “waterproof” watch just died (rusted in the inside-ugh)so now I have a watch for the beach. FYI- It’s not an expensive watch…but if it’s yours, let me know.
These 2 extreme kayakers Laurens and David were taking a rest on the beach as part of their journey along the west coast. They left Port Charlotte for a 10 day kayak-a-thon to Key West for Lobsterfest. Everything they need is on their kayaks. They have hammocks with mosquito netting to sleep on/in, water, food, GPS, and cell phones tucked securely away in the bow of the boat. That’s crazy, right? We just met them and I’m already so worried about them so I asked them to let us know when they get to Key West. I’ll keep you posted if I hear anything.
This is just a sampling of some of the other shells we found but that TRUE TULIP Clark found is adorable. We found plenty of those OLIVES and again the FIGHTING CONCHS are plentiful. Some of the shells we found on the beach but most of them were right on the edge of the surf. As you can see in the kayak picture, there is a nice shell line with seaweed intertwined. To me, that’s a great sign of even better shelling to come. Clark said he would step it up a bit and try to find me a Rolex in the surf next time. ;)
I think the watch might be the one I lost on a boat last month, I live in georgia so keep it. That is so funny that you found it.
OMG. Where did you lose it ??? I checked with the people on the beach and hotels near there with no luck so it might be yours! I’d love to get it to the rightful owner. That would be hilarious if this one is yours and you found it from my blog!!!
That would be a million to one chance if that watch does turn out to be Seth’s. Pam, maybe you better go buy some lottery tickets LOL!!
I wish I didn’t live 1.5 hrs away from Sanibel and all that wonderful shelling you have. We have shelling up here but it doesn’t compare. I do like looking for sharks teeth though. I like going to Little Gasparilla Island where there isn’t much ‘traffic’ since you can’t get there unless you have a boat. I also can’t be out at dawn and/or dusk because I’m allergic to no-seeums :~(
