Shells! They’re back! I felt like a kid in a candy store today at Blind Pass on Captiva Island…. speaking of candy….
This was my first find.. a bright orange baby HORSE CONCH…. my candy. Right next to it was a broken FLAT SCALLOP.
I haven’t seen lots of shells at Blind Pass lately so I felt so giddy. The temperature dropped and the wind picked up from the north…. signs for good shelling at the pass. Take a look at the mound forming. Yippeee!
I met a couple from Chicago who couldn’t get enough of this good shelling day.
This is David a few minutes later. I told you, he couldn’t get enough so he had to get fully shellified.
I saw lots of MUREXES, TULIPS, WHELKS, OLIVES, CONCHS, COCKLES and pieces of CONES. I took video but I was very shaky (from my excitement!) and my lens was very spotted from the spray. I’ll try to salvage what I can and get that up soon for all of you virtual shellers. Shellebrate!
