Life on a tropical island is magical. Our skies change from blue to pink to orange to grey any given moment bringing rain showers to cool off from the heat of the day which produce rainbows and picturesque reflections.
On my beach walk at low tide just before yet another stunning sunset, I found a few treasures on the gulf side near Sanibel’s Lighthouse Beach.
Milt and Jenna from New York found about the same sweet little minis I found walking toward the lighthouse.
After making a turn around the tip of the island heading towards the fishing pier, we saw lots and lots of people.
If you were lucky like Bryce from Kansas, you could find TULIPS and WHELKS half buried around those old concrete slabs. (For the history of those slabs CLICK HERE)
Hmmm…. I don’t think Bryce was the only lucky one. I’m sure everybody who sees beauty like this feels very lucky.

Love those top two pics. The sand dollar reflection image is terrific!
Just stunning photography Pam. You sure make it hard to live anywhere else.
I’m with Susan H, the first two pictures are absolutely wonderful. They totally capture the beauty and serenity of the Lighthouse beach in the evening. There’s just something about your shell on the railing pictures that I love, and the sailboat in the background adds to the feeling of peace and calm. Thank you Pam.
I tell everyone I meet florida is paradise and I firmly believe that,the skies the sun the surf, the shells and the air and florida has it all cant wait to get back just to be part of it all, that’s why I love shelling sincerely r.g.stein
The pictures are beautiful! We are coming to Sanibel in a week and half and so excited. Where do you find the shell shifters like pictured? I want a metal one.
Pam — Thanks for the beautiful pictures and the link to the older post about the history. Fascinating. So — how DOES one get to live at the lighthouse cottage? Lucky ducks :)
After we met you at the lighthouse we paddled out to keewaiden island to shell the following morning, Best trip EVER! If we could attach pics of our finds we would. 4 hours of the beach all to ourselves, guess that’s what you get early Monday morning, thank you for the tips and conversation!
