This is so cool… Linda and Diane just happen to sit beside each other on the boat ride over to the island and found out that they only lived about 10 minutes from each other in Massachusetts. And… they had worked at the same company, knew all the same people and had the same routine. Omigosh- How cool that they met on a shelling trip in Florida!
Linda and Diane from MA met shelling in Florida
Malease from Ft Lauderdale…

found an exshellent assortment of shells too. Notice that she found a few SHARKS EYES (some are buried under the other shells too) but that one on bottom right has that SNAIL FUR on it. It’s funny how often we see that on Big Hickory.
