The shells are still rolling in on Captiva at Blind Pass!
The shells are beauties. This little LACE MUREX was just perfect.
I didn’t have long to hang out on the beach but it was enough time to see that we might be able to enjoy this shell mound for weeks digging through every inch.
I was tickled to meet seaglass jewelry artist / blogger Maria from Endless Sunner. She was snatching up WHELKS, TULIPS and CONCHS. Hmmmm. I wonder if we’ll see some of her found shells in her jewelry pieces soon. I bet we do!
This guy (I didn’t even get his name! Sorry Dude, I was too overwhelmed) is holding a bright orange HORSE CONCH he just picked up. This is only one of five horsies that he found along with several CONES (ALPHABET and FLORIDA). I found two horsies too.
Awwww. Only a piece of a JUNONIA. I heard that someone found TWO yesterday.
You get a better idea of what this shell mound piling up looks like on this video. I didn’t do any fancy editing or music… it’s raw excitement of seeing so many shells. I almost dropped the camera going after this ZIGZAG FLAT SCALLOP . Hope you enjoy, wish you were here!
PS- I’m so looking forward to the golf cart parade and luminary this weekend! I’m still working on my “float”. If you haven’t heard what going on this weekend, CLICK HERE or the picture below.
