Seashells, sunsets and shellers color my world every day.
All along the west end of Sanibel brightly colored SCALLOPS brought out the color in each and every treasure that washed up
Mixed in with this color were loads of all types of shells this weekend under the Blind Pass bridge that connects Sanibel to Captiva.
It’s wild how the shells build up, get washed away then build up in another location so quickly.
Maria (PA) and local sheller Jim found this amazing shell pile and within 10 minutes Jim scooped up this gorgeous ALPHABET CONE and a huge SHARKS EYE too. Less than 10 minutes after that they headed out to another spot. On the move for more color!
After I left that shell pile, I stopped by Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge and ran into an amazing group of SW Florida shellers- Brian, Stef, Karen and Kelle who all have the same colorful passion for shelling as we do. A day to remember for sure.
And the shellin’ love continued…. I saw more shellers off the beach. I ran into Judie and Anna from New Jersey at the Sanibel Island Farmers Market where Judie wanted to show me an OLIVE she found this week at Blind Pass Sanibel. Of course she didn’t have the shell with her but she showed me a photo of it on her phone….
OMG She found a FULGURATOR OLIVE! Shellzam! So there we were, shellebrating her find in the midst of all the color of the veggies, seafood, honey and flowers. So cool.

Love, love, love receiving your newsletter Pam and seeing and hearing about all the wonderful shells from your area!! My husband and I live a bit north of you and frequent our local beaches – we are both avid shellers, and we are planning to visit your area in March:)
Pam, what an absolutely gorgeous sunset picture!
Sanibel has such beauty in so many ways!
What is the scallop piece on tips of your fingers in the first pic?
I was wondering the same thing – it was the first one to catch my eye!
I’m not 100% sure, but it looks like part of a Lion’s Paw. Very cool!
Pam, I am so happy to finally meet you!! Jimmy and I enjoyed the shelling and showing our friend Charlene (also from PA) about shelling. Look forward to seeing you again on the beaches as I enjoy winter in Florida.
