seashell collection on shelling trip

We are so thankful we had an amazing shelling cruise today! The assortment of shells found on our iLoveShelling cruise to Big Hickory wit Sight Sea-R Cruises this morning was mind blowing. These are just a few of the different gems found by Linda,  Eliana Nik. Happy!

We had a downpour of rain all last night in Sw Florida with strong, cold winds blowing from the north but by the time we boarded our boat, the weather was safe and calm. Perfect for us when we reached the island to find the storm had blown all kinds of shells and beach bling on to the beach.

Maribeth, Tristan and Lynne drove down from Orlando to enjoy the thrill of boating to this secluded island to fill their shell buckets.

I peeked inside Maribeth’s bucket to see 2 ALPHABET CONES, GAUDY NATICA, KINGS CROWN, SUNRAY VENUS, TULIPS,  MUREXES and so many more cool shells. Love it!

Phil and Carol (WI) were thankful for those winds too…

Three ALPHABET CONES, WORMIES, SHARKS EYES, NUTMEGS and ANGEL WINGS. If you look closely at the ANGEL WING on the bottom, you’ll see that Carol wanted to save this one especially since it has a perfect “heart”in it.

I’m so thankful I got to meet so many fun shellers that don’t mind a little cool weather in Florida. They know cold weather brings the shells!
