best of iLoveShelling 2013

Happy New Year!

As we close the book on 2013, memories of this incredible year have flooded my heart with happiness while sharing our shelling adventures with you. Every day on the beach I have felt like you have been right along side me and my lens. Thank you for being there and for your encouragement and your excitement as we learn new places and new treasures to explore together. Without you, I would not have been as focused to share Mother Nature’s wonders of Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers Beach and so many more beaches of the world. It’s been a wild ride! Thank you!!

It was not easy to come up with only 10 iLoveshelling blog posts as my favorites so I really had to decide which ones I think I will be talking about for the rest of my life. We were soooo very fortunate to be able to travel to fabulous shelling destinations more in 2013 than ever before so those were no brainers to choose. But since this week has been so special with our low tide mornings and I can still feel the excitement of yesterday’s shell pile transforming right before our eyes… I am starting at #10 with a video I promised to show you on yesterday’s post. (Tomorrow – New Years Day- should be an even lower tide! Yippee!)

So Enjoy the count down for my top 10 fave iLoveShelling blog posts…

#1 Three Bobcat Kittens And Their Mamma

Weirdly enough, my fave memory and blog post of 2013 doesn’t even have to do with the beach but I knew everybody who loves shelling would share in the excitement of seeing the other glories of Mother Nature at work. It was the heart racing moments on Sanibel watching a BOBCAT mother and her three kittens play together while I photographed and videoed them.
