An hour of Sanibel shelling

Someone must have put in a good word to Mother Nature for me. I put in an order for lots of sea shells for my family’s Sanibel visit…

Whoever whispered into her ear- Thank You. She delivered!

Fave Sanibel shells for the day in April

There were shells washing in with each wave but you had to be fast to grab them.

So check out this next photo and see how many shells were built up around that old wooden jetty (bulkhead) on Monday…

I went back to this same spot yesterday late afternoon and saw this…. most shells completely swept away. It’s so wild how fast that happens!

Yes, I still found some beautiful treasures last night but no where near the amounts earlier in the week. I had to get IN the water to find this PAPER FIG, BANDED TULIP, PEAR WHELK, MAUVE-MOUTH DRILL and juvie FIGHTING CONCH (back row) and CHESTNUT TURBAN and CALICO SCALLOP in the front.

Slightly different from the ones earlier in the week crashing up on to the beach like all of these…

Some faves of Sanibel shelling day

Again, the power of Mother Nature! That’s what keeps us coming back over an over again- every single day the beaches change. As The Shells Turn. Oh and check out my fave shell of the week- this awesome “Lemon Pecten” scallop.
