Just when I’m missing how beautiful it is up north when the leaves are changing to colors of red, orange and yellow -I look down on my Sanibel beach to see this…
Well of course I found the sunny Florida COQUINA and JINGLE shells too that always make me happy.
Combing the beach through a sea of white ARKS, CROSS-BARRED VENUSES, KITTENS PAWS and JEWELBOXES…
Clark found a fab juvie APHABET CONE, few sweet shells and a BAY BEAN. This is another type of SEA BEAN we find on Sanibel but I didn’t get a good photo of this one- next week, ok?
Of course we had to laugh when we saw this TURRID (“Clark, it’s not called a turd, its called a turrid !!” … every time- haha)
We are giving thanks to feeling the island style fall harvest of the colors in our beloved seashells and sunsets.
Beautiful. Just beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!
(Kay took the words right out of my mouth…)
I will be back on Sanibel late on December 9th for 2 weeks — ah, what a lovely place to be. :)
Have a great time Susan!
Please keep us posted on what great things you find!
They are indeed lovely but still cannot compete wth the flore and fauna of Autumn in the northern latitudes. All have their place and beauty in the eye of the beholder, thank you for sharing
It’s a beautiful world!
I have always loved the Coquinas. Beautiful!
Pam, your Sanibel shells in all those fall colors are truly amazing!! Thank you for your picture/post. Happy Fall and Happy Thanksgiving!!
We are ALL Thankful for YOU Pam !!!
Happy Thanksgiving from COLD Virginia!!
Beautiful Pam ! Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful discoveries from one of my favorite places ! You bring a smile to my face every time. Wishing you & yours A Very Happy Thanksgiving ! Looking forward to seeing you soon !!! Pam
Those fall coquina’s are just beautiful. Wish I had some for my dining room table. Wishing you, Clark and the kitties a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am also thankful for you and all you do for the beaches and wildlife of Sanibel. It is much appreciated. Happy Thanksgiving from the cold of PA (ice on the windshield this morning – brrrrr).
The colors on the coquinas are striking. I don’t always find coquinas in those colors. It has me thinking… I found lots of coquinas with brilliant colors like that (red, orange, brown) when I was there last November. Is it just coincidence or the season? Happy Thanksgiving to you and Clark!
At this special time off year we give thanks to you and Clark for sharing all your wonderful sea sensational stories. Have a special Thanksgiving to all. 😎
