Sanibel’s Blind Pass has been so much fun the past week with high winds from the west pushing in the seashells.
I’ve met so many nice shellers enjoying every minute of their seashell treasure hunting.,,like Patty (VA) who found a nice piece of JUNONIA!
She and her friend Cindy (MD) said they met so many cool shellers too and were thrilled with all their finds.
Some of the shellers they got to meet were Kathy and Paul (Utah) who are back in town. In my post Junonia Necklace I showed Kathy with her wire wrapped JUNONIA she made. I’m sure she gave Patty a few tips on making her JUNONIA piece into a beautiful necklace as well. Here they are again!
They found some beauties. Two gorgeous SHARK’S EYES, their TRUE TULIP had amazing color and I wish you could see how purple their APPLE MUREX was in person.
Kristy and Dave (MN) found some spectacular goodies as well.
Look how dark those KINGS CROWNS are… and with nice spines! I know, the ALPHABET CONE ain’t so bad either, huh?
Kathy (NY) was working that shell “backhoe” nonstop.
She put back quite a few live FIGHTING CONCHS but eventually found a few empty ones she could add to her shell bag.
I saved the best shellers for last. Now how cute are these little girls! Sisters Maddie and Gillian from Ontario were so excited about their seashells they collected and identified each of them by name.
Maddie told me that earlier in the week she saw a SEAHORSE on the beach that had lost his breath so she put him in the water to see him come to life again. She saved a SEAHORSE like Carol in my Saving A Sanibel Sea Horse post! They are so special so good job Maddie! Here are some of the shells she and Gillian had just found…
The shelling should still be really good the rest of the week so don’t worry if you are coming in for the weekend. Happy shelling!
