Clark found another SCOTCH BONNET!!!! This is crazy! We both found one in December for the first time and now he found another one within a couple of months.
Wow…. pretty, huh? He said finding it was pure luck. We went to Sanibel side of Blind Pass yesterday and Clark took his shelling backhoe scoop out to the exposed sand bar at low tide. He just kept scooping blindly on the gulf side of the bar and one scoop pulled up this perfectly beautiful SCOTCH BONNET.
There weren’t many shells on the Captiva side but, as always, the sunset was spectacular.
There were so many things to show you from the Sanibel Shell Fair and Show over last weekend I didn’t have a chance to even talk about the shelling. Let me catch you up on a few people I met and what they found….
Awww! Look at Mary Jo and Michelle with their dressed up i Love Shelling totes packed with tees, cards and a shelling scoop to celebrate Michelle’s wedding engagement. Michelle is getting married in April so this was just the start of her shelling bachelorette party.
Bride to be Michelle collected over 1000 ARK SHELLS at the lighthouse beach on Sanibel as decorations for her beach themed wedding. Smart girl!
Frannie and Eddie walked over the Blind Pass bridge to the Sanibel side to discover all kinds of shells but I couldn’t get over how pretty the bright purple CALICO SCALLOPS were.
Carol and Connie from Kalamazoo also found some pretty CALICO SCALLOPS at Bind Pass on the Captiva side and were lucky enough to find a dried up STARFISH ( or “sea star”… I grew up calling them starfish so they will always be starfish to me) up on the beach.
Just a few more pictures from sunset last night…..
