I have been a shelling maniac the last few months. Sanibel and Captiva have been bustling this season with visitors (and locals too) enjoying this beautiful weather and the good shelling so I didn’t miss a minute of it. I needed to catch up a little since my house and shells were getting out of control. So I took a few days for cleaning and organizing the garage where my shells are, doing the laundry and cleaning up shell photos on my computer. Ssssccccrrraaaaatch … BOORRRRING! I had to get back to the beach!
I went to Blind Pass on the Sanibel side to see the changes and if the shelling was picking up.
I found a few FIGHTING CONCHS and a LIGHTNING WHELK right away!
Cutie Hannah from Germany showed me up big time with her perfect nice size SHARK’S EYE.
I ran over to the Captiva side to find the shell pile from over a week ago is still there and still giving.
Angela (Englewood, FL) was collecting KITTENS PAWS and other small shells for her daughter in Atlanta who is a biology school teacher. Her kids are going to have fun summer camp projects!
So, I told you I was doing a little cleaning and a little laundry, right? Well, these are mighty clean shells…….. from the dryer. Sound familiar?
