finding seashells at sunset

Seashells, sunsets and shellers color my world every day.

beautiful shells

All along the west end of Sanibel brightly colored SCALLOPS brought out the color in each and every treasure that washed up

shells color my world

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.
