I am so glad I didn’t wear my pink tutu to the beach shelling yesterday because I know I wouldn’t have looked this stinkin cute. Clare (CT) was workin her adorability showing us all how to look good picking up shells. Such a little cutie petutie! I’ll have to think twice before I break out my tutu again after seeing how well it can be worn…… and the fashion police might lock me up for good. ;)
So after seeing Clare, I had pink on the brain and fell in love with this pretty little pink SCALLOP shell.
And guess who else I saw…. Penny from Jupiter (in the pretty pink shorts) with her friend Faye.
Penny found this “pinkish” PURPLISH TAGELUS half….
I ran down to Blind Pass Captiva side today to see what kind of shells were there and to see if there were any changes since last week. Of course there were changes!
I’m not sure when all that seaweed floated it but it was nice to see that ledge wasn’t still there that I showed 2 weeks ago (to see click here).
I found sisters Cheryl (NJ) and Cindy (IL) sittin’ and siftin’ for shells in that pile that has come and gone a few times high on the beach. They were finding good shells! This was Cindy’s bucket filling up with OLIVES, CONCHS, pink SCALLOPS and yes, that’s a FLORIDA CONE right on top.
This was Cheryl’s shell bag with a perfect little pink FLAT SCALLOP, a NUTMEG, plenty of CALICO CLAMS, KITTEN’S PAWS and more pink CALICO SCALLOPS….
Okay yes, I had a short little affair with pink but you know what is my true love and gives me huge warm and fuzzies when I see it? Aqua! Especially when it’s an i Love Shelling tee shirt on some cutie Shelling Sistahs surrounded by aqua and seashells! Oh, can it get much better?
Omgosh! Not only is little Clare the cutest thing ever!!! But, your post is so funny!! Wouldn’t it be a hoot to go shelling in a tutu? 16 days till I’m there and I’m thinkin’ I just might bring one with me! Lol! Can’t wait to find my own pink scallops!
I have a stuffed elephant that wears a pink tutu, which I am certain I would resemble if I were to wear one. Think I’ll stick with my aqua “I love shelling”
T-shirt! See you soon:)
That picture of Clare would make the cutest card!! l LOVE it…makes me smile. Love the pink scallop too.
The “sistah’s ” are looking pretty good in their t-shirts too!!
Looks like shelling was good at the pass again…..cant wait to be there…October (I think) can’t come fast enough!!
It was such fun to see our pics on your site! Jeri, Candy, and I had the most wonderful time in Sanibel – it was everything I’d hoped for, and more. Am definitely coming back – with my family – next year. So good to meet you and share our “big find” with you! Would love to stay in touch-
When I saw Clare in that tutu, she made me really laugh out loud and I was smiling the whole time writing this post. Really funny thing is….. I made a typo when I first started writing and put “Clark” instead of “Clare”. LOL Can you picture that? I got so tickled picturing me or anybody else shelling in a pink tutu….. but Clark??!!!!! hahaha
Lori- yall are so much fun- good to meet you too!
If you saw the cutie in a pink tutu on beach on East Gulf Drive, then we saw the same one. She sure was busy.
The cutest people shell on Sanibel!
Clare is adorable.
Oh, you need to get an award for that adorable picture of Clare in her tutu. That is THE cutest thing!
Hi Pam & all you Shellin’Sistahs,
I had to check my fav blog before bedtime. I nearly fell off my chair when I saw that adorable little girl in her pink tutu and read your oh so delightful “pink” commentary, Pam…can’t tell you how happy it makes me to get my “Sanibel Fix” from your beautiful pictures & words and to see how happy to make the rest of the sistah-hood! And, yes, aqua, is my favorite color…I wear my iloveshelling tee a lot to keep me in the happy mood.
the vision of Clark in a pink tutu was the final happy fix…off to Sanibel dreamin’.
Yay! We were so excited to see our Clare on your blog!
She sure loves shelling, even if she tosses the most beautiful ones back into the sea! Great blog!
So thrilled to see the photo of my beautiful granddaughter which was forwarded by her Mom, Brigid to me. I loved reading all the “replies” by your followers as well. Thanks for making a gloomy day in NJ just perfect.
That picture of little Clare is priceless! And yes, I can just imagine the “sistahs” shelling in their pink tutus, but I think I prefer the gorgeous aqua Shelling Shirts! And it’s amazing how the whole complexion of the beach changes on Sanibel/Captiva especially at Blind Pass. Thank you for taking the time and pictures to keep us all caught up and “in the loop” since we can’t physically be there. Love to you all!
Yes, Clare certainly is a cutie petutie!! I’m quite sure I wouldn’t be able to pull that one off myself!! I’ll have to get myself on of the fabulous aqua shirts for October though!
Oh my gosh, I’m the other grandmother of Baby Clare and the picture of her in her little tutu simply made my day! She is the sweetest baby girl ever and I’m hoping I can mange to get a copy of that picture and frame it for posterity!! Thank you for capturing her in such a memorable, sweet pose!
OMG Claire is adorable to the extreme! Could just squeeze that little sheller!
and that pink scallop…..WOW it is to die for! What an awesome color it is! Nice one!
At least we grown ups can wear pink shorts!
So true…, any server can have glitches. So it’s best to have a backup of your blog on cd no matter where it is.
This little cutie had more than one adorable outfit for the beach, but this pink tu-tu stole the show!!! We loved watching her and her shelling techniques.
Clare was so cute picking the shells at the beach. We could just hug her all day. Wish we could see Clare soon.
