sanibel lounge stoop shelling

THIS is what a Sanibel vacation is all about! I call this kind of shelling “Shellounging” which might even be better than the Sanibel Stoop AND the Sit “n Sift. LOL Sitting in your lounge chair in the water at low tide with your drink in the cup holder while filling your shell bag with seashells washing up to your toes…. that’s Shellounging! I’m taking notes from Shelloungers Linda (Cape Coral) and her daughter Jessica from Virginia…

They were finding great shells shellounging at the Sanibel Lighthouse Beach…

“Just to be able to walk the beach this week in 85 degree sunny weather has been a blessing” said Debbie and Bill from Delaware…

So it’s a bonus to find some nice shells too.

My friend Anna was looking for WENTLETRAPS at the Lighthouse and was happy to find a few.

While looking for WENTLETRAPS, you have to get a very low Sanibel Stoop going so you might as well look for any miniature shell you can find. She had lots of luck with minis so I though you might want to do a little CYBERSHELLING too! I feel badly for some of you up north caught in that snow, so I want to bring a little sunshine and warmth to you. Look a little closer at Anna’s treasures and see if there’s anything you might have picked up too. Click on this next image of Anna’s hand to enlarge it. Shell away!

 Anna told me the last few days, she was still finding shells at the shell pile at Blind Pass Captiva. FYI- Just remember there is still construction equipment at the lot at Turner Beach (Blind Pass Captiva parking lot) so you might have to go to the Sanibel side to park if you want to shell there. This could change at any moment but that’s the last I’ve seen- CLICK HERE to see my post about that info.

But anyway, these are the shells Anna found just by Sitting ‘N Sifting through that huge “old” pile of shells that came in on Thanksgiving. Shellzam!
