Can you believe I’ve been blogging about seashells and beach bling on Sanibel, Captiva, Southwest Florida and around the world for 5 years? I can’t believe it! It seems like yesterday when I started this blog to write a few thoughts down about my shelling adventures. Before I knew it, some of you started to comment of your joy of beach combing as well… and from that day forward I was hooked.

Pam, it keeps saying “Failed to send your message” — perhaps because so many people are trying to enter? I guess I will just keep trying!
Happy anniversary and thank you for everything!!
Maybe their website wasn’t ready for so many entries at once? heehee. Most people don’t realize how many shell crazy shellers there are out there in this world :) – but Whatever it is, I am in close contact with the Island Inn folks and they are working hard on getting it fixed. Soon! you have a week to enter so don’t give up! :)
Let’s all raise our “shells” to Pam! Cheers! Thank you for 5 years of cybershelling and I wish you many, many more years of happy shelling and blogging. May God bless you with western winds forever.

Pam….you are just a phenomenal inspiration and and all around wonderful person….Happy Anniversary! I’ve enjoyed your blog over the years and loved your shelling trips. Thank you for sharing your time and love of shelling with all of us. You and Clark are certainly the King & Queen of shelling!!
I’m looking forward to receiving that phone call from the Island Inn on the 6th. Thanks, Pam.
It won’t let me register, say’s *Failed to send message*
oooohhh nooooooo! April, Ive made a phone call. Im so sorry! please bear with me?????
Not a problem, thank you :)
Wow, 5 years have flown by already. But what a wonderful 5 years it has been following your blog. Keep posting ’cause I shell through you, my friend.
I keep getting a error message when I try to register.
I think its fixed..again. My fingers and toes are crossed that nobody else has problems entering. April? Loretta? did it work for you this time? (please, please, please!) Remember, You have until November 5 to register. :)
I got in…yea!
Pam, I tried a few times, then waited a day or so and tried again. It worked. Maybe too much activity from us shell-natics that the site couldn’t handle it. I remember when I ordered my Kings Crown ornament from you!!! I’m pretty sure your site was recommended by someone on BOSC.
Congrat-shell-ations on this awesome milestone!! Hi to Clark!
Susan, Christine, Jude, Linda and everybody- thank you so much for your kind words! especially throughout this 5 years- you have meant the world to me with your comments and friendships on the beach. Thank YOU!!!
The link takes me to a site to book at the Island Inn. No entry form :/
Lisa, Sarah (comment above) figured out that the link doesn’t work on a mobile device- so sorry! We will try to correct that but for now, please try to register on a desktop or laptop computer or tablet. So sorry for the inconvenience!
it worked ty
Is it just me, or is (the link) Island Inn website not showing information about this??
I cannot find it anywhere on their page, even in their usual promotions section. Help!? I need Sanibel nowwwwww!!!
Happiest of Anniversaries Pam! You have no idea how much I look forward to each new post, with pictures of your most recent shells and shelling adventures. Keep on, keeping on, and a hearty ThankYou for providing us our shelling fix!
5 years of loving the beach and sharing it with your fellow beach combers! thank you (and hubby) for allowing us to experience it along with you…here’s to five more years! :)
Ok; I’ve figured it out now! I was on a mobile device and needed to be in the desktop view instead to enter. Sorry about that!
Oh Sarah, THANK YOU! This is probably why Lisa is still having a problem- and I couldn’t figure it out. I just went on my mobile to the link and now I see that it just goes to the regular “mobile” site. (honestly, this is exactly why I haven’t changed over to one of the mobile apps for iLS). so I will let the Island Inn know tomorrow but for now- you have the answer… you can only enter on the desktop, laptop or tablet – no mobile devices. Oh gosh I am so sorry to put everybody through this! Geeeez.
Congratulations, Pam! Your blog has been just a godsend to us shell lovers out here. You are the BEST resource on the Internet when it comes to shelling and I so appreciate you! And thank you for this opportunity to win a trip of a lifetime!
Congratshellations !!! Your everyday life is the stuff of our dreams….lucky you !!
I just registered and it worked fine.
Pam, I can’t believe that it has been 5 years already. I think I found you about 1 year after you started and I was hooked immediately. I went back and read every post and comment. You have been such a wonderful source of education and inspiration. I’m sure none of us can even imagine how much of your personal time is taken up with this blog and it’s related events. But, I for one really appreciate all of the time and effort you put into this and it really is the highlight of my day. THANK YOU!!!!!
Fingers crossed! Would love to win! Congrats Pam on your Shelliversary!
Pam, Thank you so much for all you have done for us! Your blogs, photos and videos have brighten many days in my life. You have taught me soooo much about the shells that I love so much! With your help, I can feel the sand between my toes and my back hurting from the Sanibel Stoop! LoL
Just entered, hope I win! I’ve never entered a giveaway before, super-duper excited!
Hi Pam, well first Congrat’s on 5 year’s, second it was so good to see you and clark while the Carolina Girls & Joe were in Sanibel. Awesome shell collection thanks for sharing BUT the best of all was Puppy Cat’s Tricks. Amazing Cat!! Hopefully we can workout shelling with you this March at some of our shell spots.
Love you guys!
P.S. If I win the Island Inn Giveway I will see you sooner!!!!
Wow 5 years of giving joy, educated information and inspiration to so many people. You truly are an amazing person. I have used your inspiring words,joyous voice and infectious smile for the past two years and 9 months to get through some tough times.
