I always feel like I’m on vacation when I’m at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva. It’s only a 25 minute drive for me to get there but once I’m there I get a little giddy, then I relax, soak up every single gorgeous view…then of course hit the beach. Last night, my friend Diane and I combed Sunset Beach up to the north point by the jetty rocks at Redfish Pass to find a nice variety of shells. I found a piece of JUNONIA again (I found a nice piece in January too- click here) and I was tickled to find a nice NUTMEG. I always seem to find OLIVES, FLATS and TURBANS when I am there but the last few times I’ve been there, I’ve found the really orange TURBANS. Love them!
There were shells at the edge of the surf but we found shells mostly high on the beach…
…Just like Jimmy and Joey from Chicago.
Their sister Sophia pulled a baby FIGHTING CONCH out of her shell bag to show us the shell she found especially for her gramma. Sweet! She will love it, Sophia!
We made it to the end of the island just in time to catch the sunset over a pile of shells.
We had to look up every few minutes because it was too much fun to pick through the pile of shells.
Sunset over paradise.
I did find something rare last night. A rare photo- heeheehee. Diane snuck a photo of me doing the Sanibel Stoop… well actually, the Captiva Crouch. LOL I’m the one who is normally taking the “Stoop” photos so it was funny for me to see this one. :) Sweet Di.
Even Miss PELICAN stayed for a while with us to enjoy the calm, colorful evening.
Not a bad girls night out.
