This ROSE MUREX is a fabulous shell! We went on a low tide shelling adventure down to Marco and I found two of these shells today and Clark found one as well. I have so many other shells to show you but I’ll start with these and I will continue tomorrow to show you a few more whopper finds. Yep, I said whopper and I’ll tell you right away it wasn’t a JUNONIA but it’s in the really-good-find category.
This one isn’t even a rosey color, it’s more orange than rose so I was even more thrilled when I found it.
This was the second ROSE MUREX I found today. Gorgeous.
Okay, and one more ROSE MUREX that Clark found …..
This can’t compare to Charley and Peggy’s two JUNONIAS in one week but this is pretty good to us for one day.
I hate to keep you hanging to tell you what else we found but I can’t fit them all in for one post. I had to sit and enjoy these beauties first and shellebrate such good treasures. Our Marco shelling adventure will be continued tomorrow so stay tuned!
Wow!! I’ve never seen one of those before, beautiful!!! Orange is always my favorite color to find, I have a container with all my orange I have found on Sanibel and Captiva, it’s my treasure♥ Looking forward to seeing the rest tomorrow. Glad to hear you had a great shelling birthday!!
Gorgeous. Such a great find!!
Love it!! Good for you. I have never found oneof those.
Beautiful shells. Will look forward to seeing your next post.
My niece & I were planning to head to Sanibel but we are the impulsive sort. Once I calculated to mileage to Marco, it added up to the same as to Sanibel. Just a straight shot down 75 . Doing it by boat is the way to go. I think I walked 6 miles out & back to get to the end of Tigertail Beach where the good shells were. I was tuckered out. I can’t wait to see what Clark found. He seems to always get a shovel-full of goodies.
Hope your birthday was awesome,
fantastic finds! I didn’t know that Marco was good for shelling. But I’ve only been there briefly after my first trip to Sanibel and there was no comparison for me. Both in beauty and in bounty.
Hope your birthday was great as well.
I just want to tell you that your web site is awesome!!!! I’ve been wanting to visit Sanibel Island for months now. It was reading your blogs a few days ago that motivated my husband and I to GO. We hopped in the car and three hours later we were collecting our own shells. We went shelling 3 times in one day, two of them in the dark. We loved every minute. Thanks to you we now have bags of shells to clean and sort. Thanks for all your wonderful information. Also wanted you to know that advertising on your site works!!!! I have bought two shell sifters so far, and who knows what I’ll buy next!!!!
BEAUTIFUL SHELLS & A BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
LEE & BILL
Oh, Pam, what wonderful Finds!!! They are spectacular!!! Can’t wait to see what ele you found on your shelling adventure!! I can totally understand your need to “Shellebrate” before you go on to your other treasures!!! Thank you ever so much for sharing these amazing shells!!!
what is the size of these shells ?
The first one is 1 3/8 inches long and the other 2 are just slightly smaller. I hope to show them again on my next post but so much to show—- I’m working it on it now.
Thanks yall for all of your wishes!
Hi, beautiful shells. Now I have to add Marco island to my list for shelling!
This beautiful shell would make a stunning necklace- I wonder what sort of design Maria from Endless Sunner could create with this jewel from the sea!
I’ve found a couple of coral pieces too in the last weeks that would/will be stunning in her jewelry!
Woke up this morning to below zero temps and no electricity—-your pictures of the rosy shells warmed me up, thanks again and Happy Birthday!!
So pretty! Can’t wait to see what else you found…I can feel the excitement in your words! Congrats on a successful trip to Marco! Miss you and Sanibel!
Those are so pretty and unusual. That made for a great day, I’m sure!!!!
Shhhhhhh…………Pam…………keep the Marco Island a secret. I’m heading there in March. It’s been the best kept secret!
