Clark and I found loads of shells at Gulfside City Park yesterday and collected a few really sweet ones. Most of the sea shells we saw were the common clams and other bivalves but it’s funny to me how everybody sees something different when they look at a pile of shells like this. It’s the Is-The-Glass-Half-Full scenario. What do you see… Lots of shells? Or a picked over pile that has “nothing” in it?
I see a beautiful beach that has miles of shoreline to explore, don’t you?
Rachelle and Justin are always happy when they are on the beach and they found some nice shells in the water using their shell backhoes. They both found CONES- an awesome ALPHIE and a beauty of a FLORIDA.
Holly and Cathy from Indiana were searching in those shell piles and up high on the beach.
Cathy found her very first WENTLTRAP among some other sweet minis. I think my favorite ones she found were the teeniest tiniest little TURKEY WINGS. They are hard to see in this photo but they are perfectly darling.
I’m also usually tickled to run across a funny beach sculpture like this dog and bone… But! Remember folks, it’s SEA TURTLE nesting season. Please don’t build tall sand sculptures or dig trenches to cause mother SEA TURTLES to have false crawls or for the babies to get trapped. It’s so stinkin adorable but I’m sure SCCF turtle trackers will decide if it needs to be smoothed out.
