Well, how do you like that? I know yet another thrilled beach comber coveting another JUNONIA prize this week…and you know her too! I just introduced her to you as the Sanibel Seeker in my last post- Shelling Sister Carla Knotts! She found it on the beach half way covered by a COCKLE shell near Blue Dolphin Cottages off West Gulf Drive. She said it wasn’t in the water and it wasn’t near the wrack line, it was in between on a sand bar that was showing at low tide. If you look at the seventh picture down on my last post Cone Queen, Sanibel Seeker and Golfer Of The Sea, you’ll see that area I’m talking about… it’s on the right hand side of the photo.
I am so tickled for her. When I met her on the beach the other day, her eyes almost swelled up with tears with joy after telling me what Sanibel means to her. The moment she starts to drive over that causeway to see the island, she tried to explain the emotion that comes over her. It was meant to be that she found her special treasure. As I told Carla congratulations, she smiled at me and pointed to the sky and said “Yep. Thanks to my mom!”
