Santa came early to my house this year! How did he know that I have been jonesing for the bivalve book Seashells of Southern Florida by Mikkelsen & Bieler for an entire year? It’s a very expensive book so I could never pull the trigger on buying it for myself. Well Santa must have known my dilemma and whispered the idea in the ear of thoughtful friends……. MurexKen and MurexAlice!
OMG! I still can’t believe it! Really, I can’t thank yall enough! They invited Clark and me over to their lovely gulf front condo (check it out! They rent it out throughout the year when they aren’t here- CLICK HERE) to present this incredibly thoughtful gift. I’ve already put the book to good use! And thanks to my brother Doug, for the beautiful Christmas flower arrangement we’ve gotten so much enjoyment already too- it makes for a gorgeous backdrop for photos, right?
Here’s a sneak peak of some of the shells I’ve collected but not identified…until now. I’ll post photos of the shells I learned tomorrow along with another special treat I received! It makes me so happy because now I will be able to share more information with you. It makes it so much more enjoyable to learn together. Merry Christmas!
