woo hoo!!! It’s a shellin’ shellabration!
Wow, looks like everyone will have a great haul today! Happy shelling!
I want to be right alongside that group of shellers. But just had my knee replaced so shelling will have to wait.
Pat, I had my knee replaced in June and finally no travel restrictions. Hope your surgery went OK.
Looks like the iphone works just fine. Can’t wait for more photos. It looks and feels like a shelling frenzy. Sure wish I was part of it.
Mother Nature very fickle. No shells this evening at Blind Pass as tide is going out! Such a bounty this morning!
Shell….Yes!!!! Wish I was there. Counting the days till October!!
In the meantime, keep the pics & news coming.
Thanks so much my dear Pam
Happy shelling everyone!
Yeah!! I’m going to head over to Sanibel, as well, for some of this great shelling thanks to Isaac!! Pam – I’ve been going over to Little Hickory every single day and the shell piles have been 3+ feet deep for the last couple of days, too! I have found everything from fighting conchs, horse conchs (6 of them over 10 inches!!), sea whips, sand dollars, 7 Alphabet Cones so far, lots of Angel Wings and one that is 6 1/2 inches long and PERFECT condition!! I am in shelling heaven!! :) Thanks for all of the updates on Sanibel!! I’m excited to go shelling over there this week, too!
Have fun!! :)
First time reading this blog and it has to be one of the best! So jealous of all of the treasures around you guys!!
***It’s nice finding someone who gets excited about finding coral because of the common passion and because I need advice. How do you clean the coral that you find on the beach. My boyfriend and I recently visited Myrtle Beach State Park and came home with a lot of coral treasures. Some of our best coral finds had twinges of blue, pink, or orange. I want to be able to preserve them the best I can, without killing the color, which I am afraid bleaching will do. So far my cleaning regimen is very basic. I have gone through half of our finds and rinsed them with hot water for a minute or two, then towel dried them. What’s your routine? Any help or knowledge is appreciate and many thanks!***
That lady in the front in the hat is actually me. I tried to AVOID your camera, but you caught me! That was a pretty amazing day though. I have been coming to Sanibel for shells for 10 plus years & found more GOOD shells in 4 days than I ever have in the 10 years combined. It was just amazing.
