Joe Anne and Deborah from Brunswick, GA didn’t want me to take their picture on Algier’s Beach (Gulf Side City Park) but didn’t mind showing all of their shell bag treasure. They scored with FIGHTING CONCHS, LIGHTNING WHELKS, CALICO SCALLOPS and MUREXES. They weren’t the only lucky ones. They told me that a couple from a neighbor city in Georgia found a JUNONIA just minutes before we got there.
James did find a JUNONIA! It was a broken one but the core was still in tact and it was the first time in 35 years of visiting Sanibel that they’ve found even a piece. I told them about the necklace that Kathy from Salt Lake made with her similar piece of Junonia in my post Junonia Necklace .
Nice! Lovely sauseway sunset, Pam. Thank you, once again, for sharing!
I meant, causeway! LOL
I love seeing folks with their treasures! The broken junonia has a very special look, imo… a wonderful gift from the Gulf.
I hope your kitty feels better. She is very cutie. I love black and white cats. They look so classy. You and your husband inspired me to start shelling. At Joe’s party you guys shared some very cool stories about shelling and it sounds fun. I was not aware shelling had such a huge following. Very cool.
Good on them! What great finds. I too love broken shells, something so unique about the way they can look. Isn’t that necklace divine. I’m glad you stopped by and visited my blog again, yep, my flotsams did enjoy their time at the beach! Also thanks for allowing me to use your shots of Sea Grape Lodge! Pruxxx
I save every piece of Junonia I find and put them in a special jar. Someday I’ll find a whole one :)
I never knew what those were called, the only place I’ve ever seen them was at the store!! They are gorgeous, I think it’s so much fun to pursue hunting for something that is elusive like that too. Here’s to hoping you find one too! ~Lili
Pam, Love the first pic!! Can you send me the larger version?? This one shows up grainy on my desktop…and it is SO symbolic I want to use it on my desktop at home!!
Again, thanks so much for keeping us all up to date…you will never know how much it means to those of us that wanta live the life you are…maybe one day I’ll join in with a blog of my own from there!! ; )
