I always flip flop when I try to decide which I like better… SAND DOLLARS or ANGEL WING shells.
Some of the lucky shellers on our iLoveShelling Shelling Adventure with Sight Sea-R Cruises found both!
They were mixed in with WORM SHELLS and double SUNRAY VENUS shells too.
Loved hanging out with Shannon and Mark from Minnesota. The were happy to find their first ANGEL WINGS…
Lookie at these cutie shellooties Ellen, Paige, Melissa and Gail from Oregon all dressed up in their iLS gear. Love these shelling sisters!
It so much fun to see so many familiar faces like cutie Mary. She was finding lots of perfectly dried HORSESHOE CRABS and WORM SHELLS.
Awwww and Michelle had her FLAT SCALLOP necklace on again to bring back lots of fun memories. She brought her sister Patti this time too so it was so much fun to hear their shelling stories together.
Michelle found a nice ALPHABET CONE to go along with her ANGEL WINGS and other BEACH BLING.
I met another set of sisters Lyn and Lucy from Iowa at my Shellography Photography opening earlier in the week so it was so good to see them again.
Lyn loves the minis too so these were her faves. This was the first time that I’ve seen anybody find a MORTON’S EGG COCKLE (bottom left of the ROSE PETAL TELLIN) on Big Hickory Island. Hmmmmm…. I know what I’ll be looking for next time I’m there!
Gary and Pam (Hi Pam!) found their first ANGEL WINGS too.
Along with Kathy and Bob from Mayaka, Florida…
Who’s cute flip flops were those in the first photo? They were Linda’s! She and Jay from Cape Coral found those SAND DOLLARS, ANGEL WINGS and that big LIGHTNING WHELK in the high tide wrack line.
Since Linda was afraid she was going to break her SAND DOLLAR before she got back on the boat, she saw Sight Sea-R’s Captain Phil combing the beach and checking the water conditions. He offered to “baby sit” her SAND DOLLAR to get it back to the boat in one piece. So nice! I guess he was her Shell Bank- a place to keep her DOLLARS safe.
My friend Robin Draper from Authentic Florida was on our cruise too along with her husband Mike. Woohoo! We might be seeing an article about this shelling adventure soon- if we do, I’ll post it here when she sends a link.
As on every iLoveShelling cruise, each passenger received an awesome $25 gift certificate from my fave jewelry store on Sanibel… Sealife By Congress (inside Congress Jewelers). They are fabshellous to the shelling community!
It was such a fun day meeting so many incredishell shellers and hanging with so many familiar faces. I’m over the MOON SHELL.

Looks like a lot of fun! So envious of the warm temperatures, blue skies, blue water!
I’m right there with you Susan. Are you getting snow today too?
Oh yes, we got about 5 inches!
Sand dollars and angel wings – you can’t get much better than that.
I wish I had been there with all of you…….
Sand Dollars for me! Those wormy shells are awesome!
Your shelling adventures look like so much fun!
I just love your website and all of the information you share.
My husband and I will be visiting Sanibel June 21st – 26th and would love to go on a shelling cruise. When will you post your cruises for June?
I also am wondering if you know your summer shell cruise schedule. We went on a cruise with you last September and had such a good time that we want our granddaughters to go with us this summer. I’ve been checking for the schedule so we can make reservations for our lodging on Sanibel in late July. Thanks for the regular dose of the beach.
your still having fun bringing home the loot but I’m not over the moon shell yet because its so beautiful,thanx for another great post–r.g.stein
Love the sand dollars and angel wings and Lyn’s morton egg cockle and sun ray venus. That’s a nice gaudy natica. Wish we were there. It’s the first day of spring and it’s snowing! It’s supposed to warm up tomorrow, so it won’t last. Enjoy the weekend. Pat
That sounds so fun! I couldn’t pick between them either!
Love sand dollars…but have to go with angle ( ha!) wings, cause I can rarely find good ones.
