Entered both and can’t wait to enter daily drawing everyday :) THANK YOU, Pam, for putting this together! It was an awesome surprise when I received the email announcing the 4 contests and to see you and Iloveshelling.com there!
Best of Luck!
You said you entered BOTH. Did I miss a second contest entry?
Glad I’m not the only one …I entered the shelling trip contest but don’t see the daily goodie giveaway entry??? Help this almost senior please!!
Yes, u can enter daily for the iLoveShelling merchandise…but honestly, it didn’t pop up for me either. Each day when you go to The Beaches Of Fort Myers Sanibel site, a pop up window should give you an area to sign up. You might have your computer preferences selected to not allow pop up windows, if so, they may be the problem. I want be able to talk to anybody for their site until Monday, so we’ll have to wait until the to get all of our answers. So hang in there, yall. We’ll figure it out and get u signed up.
Love your daily blog! Are the daily winners posted somewhere?
I clicked, but don’t see how or where to enter??
Me either! Lee County keeps coming up but i see nowhere to enter the contest :( If you were to find out please let me know firstname.lastname@example.org !
Got my entry in there :) I so love Sanibel.
I can only get to the Beaches of FM… website from my phone. Will try later from my laptop. Would love to go shelling with you.
Oh I can’t describe how happy I am to find your blog. Just got back from Siesta Key and went shelling and had so much fun treasure hunting for shells. Love Sanibel went there the last time I was in Florida. When I retire in 7 years that’s where I am headed. The Ocean and beach call my soul! :)
I entered all 4 of us!! Thanks for doing this Pam…..You are Soooo busy!! :)
Just got back from Sanibel a week ago but would love to jump in the car and go back there right now! We LOVE Sanibel!!!!
I have always wanted to go to Sanibel and have never been. I want to WIN!!
Can someone tell me what to click on to enter contest?
Rita, click on any of the words “Clicking Here” or the photo that says “Enter Now” in this post. Once you click on that link, it will take you to “The Beaches of Fort Myers Sanibel” and if you are using a smart phone, you have to scroll down to the tab that says “Time For An Island” and click on that. If you are using a computer, just follow the directions. Good Luck!
I entered! Woo hoo gimme that!!!
Entered me and hubby!! Cool…
Something was said about a daily entery…do we enter everyday for this??
Also Pam yoi said something bout your own prizes…do we enter sonething different for that??
Thanx for the opportunity!! Never turn down a trip to Sanibel!!
If you entered on your smart phone, i dont think the daily pop up window will come on for you. Try your computer. I’ve put in calls to them to fix the problem and to understand why it pops up some days and not others. the daily prizes are iLoveShelling merchandise and The Lee Visitors Bureau is picking the winners and sending them out. So hang in there, I’ve got calls in to them to see whats up. Good Luck on winning the biggie!
I have entered!! What an amazing giveaway. Would love to go shelling with you. I was so happy to run into you at Blind Pass last year, even though my heart was heavy from my sisters unexpected passing.
Pam, about four years ago when you started your blog, did you ever think that you would become such an ambassador for Sanibel and shelling? I still love your blog and it makes me smile each time I see a new post. I am sure there are countless others who feel the same. And you bring us all together. I am still grateful for that.
Yes! Any time at all is a good time for a trip to Sanibel !!!
Can’t get the daily thing to work or go through!
just left there yesterday and can’t wait to come back.
Just yesterday I was making my husband admire once again my most perfect lace murex that I found there five years ago (with it’s beautiful fine detail and delicate pink top). I never get over these beautiful treasures from the sea and being on Sanibel is always my favorite recurring dream! I’m keeping my fingers crossed!!!
It would be so much fun to hang out with you, Pam!
I stayed at Island Inn when I was there in April. I could not have picked a shorter walk to the beach! You open the door, walk down the hill, and there it is.
i so love your blog! I look forward to your posting during the week. My recent stay at Island Inn was so much more than expected.. I plan to celabrate my 25 year retirement from a county library with 2 weeks at Island Inn in October of 2014.. Hope you will have shelling cruise durring that time frame. My family is hoping to join me for the celebration. Walking the beach and looking for “gifts”‘ is my all time passion. Cannot think of a better way to celebrate retirement.
Thank you Cindy! My mom retired from the library system as well after 25 years so I know your joy. Congrats!
CIndy, I have the same sentiment.. I just retired from teaching on Friday, My husband and I are leaving for a 2 week vacation on Sanibel ( Island Inn) in 10 days. I can not wait to get there. After committing years of dedication to a fullfilling career I can not think of a better retirement gift fromy my hubby. Amazing how the beach has such a calling for tranquility and celebration..Also,I am going on Pam’s shelling excursion on June 19th………..
Love your blog…and thank you so much for this opportunity!
It was a crazy weekend so I am just seeig this now. I’ve already entered. How wonderful to have a chance to win a trip back to paradise!
I agree with Roxanne – It has been an amazing 4 years watching you and this site grow. I know I am not alone in thanking you for all your hard work and dedication to inform, educate and spend (virtual) time with all of us. Thank you Pam!!
I have entered both contests as well. It would be a dream come true to win. I always look forward to your new posts. Have been following ever since our trip to Florida last summer when I came home with tons of shells. My daughter gave me a coffee table book called “the World’s Most Beautiful Seashells” for
Mother’s day, so I have been busy reading about all the beautiful shells found throughout the world. Am so looking foward to the day when I get a chance to visit Sanibel Island.
I too don’t see the “daily” spot on the website. Where should I be seeing it? Thanks!
The daily drawing can only be entered when you use a computer. The mobile site wont work for daily giveaways- only once for the spectacsheller grand prize.
What an awesome giveaway! I would love to shell on Sanibel and see the area! I’d also like to meet Pam. :)
I entered the giveaway at the visitors bureau website, but the pop-up for the daily prize is not there. I am on a desktop computer, not a mobile device.
I went to preferences and “enabled pop-ups” on my computer AFTER I had initially entered, but when I went back to the website, and re-entered my personal info, it told me I could only enter ONCE a day. (No pop-up in sight, so I’m not sure if I’ll be entered for today’s prize :(
I filled in the information requested at “Enter the Time For An Island Sweepstakes” from my desktop computer, and will continue to do so daily, as I see no other place to enter for the daily prize. I hope this qualifies me for a chance to win both the daily and the Island Sweepstakes prizes. I love your website ….
Another Shelling “Sistah”
FYI … I was able to enter the “daily” contest on my iPad, but not on my desktop computer, for whatever reason. I hope this can be remedied so that everyone can have a chance at both contests. Good Luck, everyone!
Yes, it’s still working intermittently. It wouldn’t work on my laptop but would work on my iPad. Very excited about the contest. Thanks Pam.
“daily” contest worked on my mac laptop, but not my mac desktop where I keep my email account. Thanks!
Hello there…I entered to win the 5 day stay, but how do I enter daily for the daily give away???
Oh and yes, I am on my laptop computer… ;)
Are we to enter the daily drawing every day or just once? Same question regarding the trip. Thanks and I also enjoyed your video
just wondering if you are going to post a list of daily winners on your website?
I have entered the the contest to win the shelling trip,but even from a laptop cannot find the daily giveaway. Help!
I am hoping to win this shell-icious event!
Sanibel is our yearly paradise & sometimes we are able to sneak away twice a year! We missed last year & will this year due to financial setback from brain surgery I had last fall. My balance is not the same since surgery but I told my husband I will still shell!!!
Won the daily grab bag and I never win anything! Yay :D
Acey! Wahoo! You won a grab bag! I’m so happy you did and that you let us know!
I just start drooling when I see all the shells there on your pictures. I have been shelling occasionally in north eastern FL, wishing and waiting until I get to come to your area……that is my dream. Take me away!!!
Pam, I can’t wait – my daughter and 2 grandsons and I will be with you on the CC trip on the 19th! Taking my snorkel this time!
I love Sanibel
I try to go there every year,and I have been all over the world, at different Beaches, but to me Sanibel is the very best place
I would flip out if I would win a free trip , since I never win anything
Sanibel is the only true Paradise
Who won the trip????i keep checking the website but there is no info????
OMG I cant wait to find out either! As soon as the Lee Visitors Bureau gets me the winner info, I will pass it along to you. :)
What ever happened to the contest winners & listing them somewhere? Kind of scary to enter something like this & not find out more info.
Barb, the contest is not over. They have another giveaway that ends at the end of this month- it’s all on Lee County Visitors Bureau website on the link I gave you to enter. The LeeVCB will choose the winners of all 4 of the Time For An Island giveaway winners when all four contests are over… other that the grab bag winners and three of them have posted here on my blog that they won one of them so I know they’ve already sent those prizes. This is our very highly respected Lee County Visitors Bureau and I was VERY honored to part of it and thrilled they were doing so many generous giveaways. So no worries. But…. can I ask you why you think “Kind of scary”? Since I did not enter (of course) I dont know what they asked you to fill out other than maybe email to notify the winner and address (im sure to make sure you are United States) and maybe a phone number. Im so sorry you feel scared about this and I never want this to happen again so… Was there something that I should be made aware of so I can make sure this doesn’t happen again?
Pam – I thought that since they have our email, they would let us know & having our phone # & address is info that I hope they won’t pass along to anyone for advertising, etc. I get a lot of “junk” mail and phone calls that are hard to get off lists. They likely received thousands of entries & there is nothing for you to do. Thanks.
