kids air shells

It’s raining shells! Caroline and Jackson from New Jersey wanted to show us how much fun they were having on the beaches of Sanibel Island this week. Since I’m staying out of the sun this week, thank you for sending these adorable pictures so I can let others know what it happening on our beaches. They even made a collage of their favorite shell finds…. one being a WORMIE!

Okay, this is awesome… They saw the hundreds of live SAND DOLLARS too so sent me a video. There are such cutie pies!

Jonathon was really lucky this week! He found not just one HORSE CONCH at Blind Pass… he found TWO empty HORSE CONCHS and sent this photo! Boom Shellalaka!

Last but not least… Our friend Susan from Guantanamo Bay Cuba sent in this video of why she loves shelling. Susan’s daughter Ellen filmed this as a surprise to her husband Lee who loves shelling just as much as Clark and I do. I think all of us who love shelling caught the shelling bug from someone else some time in our lives. It’s contagious! (Errrr “Contashellous”?) Ha! I think I watched this next video about 10 times and cracked up each and every time. LOL
