Any time we combine shells…
with low tide…
with a beautiful uninhabited beach…
with awesome shellers on an iLoveShelling cruise with Sight Sea-R Cruises… it’s a blast!
Along with our Shellabaloo folks I introduced you to on my last post, it was so much fun for everybody on our cruise on Wednesday who was anywhere around Stana from Illinois to see her overwhelmed excitement when she found a huge empty LIGHTNING WHELK after arriving on Big Hickory Island. It was so much fun to meet you and to see your enthusiasm. We talked about how to clean a shell like that but to make it easier, here is the link for the tutorial I told you about… CLICK HERE. Congratshellations Stana!
It was also such a treat to have seasoned shellers Peg, Dave (Ohio), Karen and Warren (Sanibel) on our shelling trip…
These are just a few of their fave shells they found.
Mary and Amy (Ohio) were on an ANGEL WING hunt…
I’d say they were very successful, wouldn’t you?
Ahhhh… it was such a pleasure to meet cutie shellootie family Diana, Charles, Steve and Katey (from Ohio as well- hmmmm-lots of shellers from Ohio)
Their family CONE count was at 7 but I think Charles found most of them- he definitely has a great shellers eye!
Look who else joined us! Shelling Sister Muriel with her husband Ted. They both warm my heart.
Muriel loves those JINGLE SHELLS about as much as I do.
Some of you might know “r.g. stein” from some of his comments here on iLoveShelling.com… he was on our shell trip too. It was so edshellcational for some of the other shellers to see this huge live HORSE CONCH he found in the water. He shared the sight then placed it gently back in the water where he found it. Thanks for your gifts r.g..
Visiting from Iowa, Brent and Pam (you can imagine why I’m a little partial to her- heehee) displayed their shells on a blue jacket so they look like gorgeous jewelry on velvet. Love your shellicious sea gems! Their shells are the ones in the featured first photo.
Sweet Lynn from Tennessee was happy to collect a BABY’S EAR shell on the trip.
Mindy and Nancy (Pennsylvania) had so much to share on the trip and also got so much in return… look at that bag-o-shells!
It’s always fun to see the different types of shells that different people see and collect.
It was such a fun and successful shelling trip on the Sight Sight-R with many treasures…
With spectacsheller people and shellicious sea gems.

Thx for sharing
Looks like a very successful trip! So nice to see my Canadian shelling sista Muriel finally got to meet you Pam!
Patti from Niva Scotia
Patti, We had such an awesome time with Pam! Thought of you and Pinky on your trip with Pam.
Each photo/caption sure did warm my heart :)
Pam, you are the best “Counshellor”….. pure therapy !!
another great post by pam, I had a fun time on big hickory and found a lot of nice shells met some really nice people but most of all I got to meet Pam Rambo who is without a doubt one of the most sharing people I know.she spent all of her time helping all the people on the trip with smart tips on shelling even finding and pointing out different shells while making everyone comfortable and at ease as we scoured the beach for treasures, I for one had a great time and appreciate Pam even more now that I got to talk and roam the beach with her and to top it off she is beautiful inside and out what a pleasure to be with.sincerely r.g.stein
Looks like a great time and a lot of nice shells. :)
We really enjoyed our trip with you to Big Hickory Island! Ted still speaks of how great you were at teaching us the shells and where to find them. Our best shelling cruise and we did 3 of them this vacation. Just waiting for all my shells to arrive home from being shipped.
Very excited to come to Sanibel in February with my best friend and go on my first iloveshelling cruise!!!!!!
Looks like a ton of fun! I’ll be joining you on a cruise in April, I can’t wait!
Yay- Cant wait to see you!
Pam! My shells came in today! We had a few boxes shipped back to us. Seeing it’s minus -13F here today and way too much snow for my liking, the shells are a real treat to have today. Brings back great memories of this shelling cruise with you, Sight Sea-R cruises and the new friends on board.
Thanks for everything Pam!
