It was a perfect evening for a wedding on the beach at Casa Ybel Resortwith cool breezes, no humidity and a clear colorful sky. I saw a beautiful small ceremony taking advantage of this gorgeous weather, then I got so tickled to see beautiful bridesmaid Dani make a bee line directly to the shell line on the beach right after the ceremony ended while still holding her flowers. She already had a hand full of CALICO SCALLOPS, a BANDED TULIP, and a few COQUINAS by the time I caught up with her. She told me the whole wedding party came to Sanibel from Columbus, Ohio to celebrate her sister’s wedding.
I also met Fran and David who have been coming to Sanibel for years to shell but have gotten a little picky about the shells they keep. They were especially happy to find the PEAR WHELK (top right) and the BANDED TULIP (bottom left).
Susie from MacIntosh Books found a pretty CONCH!
