Shelling isn’t complicated. It’s the most relaxing activity one can do while on the beach.
Just walk along the shoreline and pick up a few seashells that you think are pretty. That’s it. So that’s exactly what we did yesterday along the beach of Big Hickory Island yesterday when we all found handfuls of ANGEL WING shells.
Okay, I have to admit though… it adds so much fun when you hop on a boat like the Sight Sea-R to go to explore a secluded island for shells!
It’s so much fun to meet other amazing shellers like cutie shellootie Gretchen who made a new SEA STAR friend as well. After saying hello and learning how to tell if they are still alive, Gretchen gently placed her new SEA STAR friend back into the water and wished it a good long life.
Along the way of enjoying this spectacular sunny day, Peter and Alex (Connecticut) found a few keepers to put in their shell bag.
Thank goodness Peter found a couple of ALPHABET CONES- thats all he looks for… so I’d say he was successful.
Can you believe the color of that water? Theresa and Russ (soon to be Cape Coral ;)) …
found an ALPHIE, SAND DOLLAR and a few other souvenirs to remember our fab day together.
How can ya not have a good time hanging out with folks like Susan from Toronto? Really, we’re all just wanting the same thing- enjoy the outdoors and find a few good memories along the way.
She found her first ALPHABET CONE.
Lori and Glenn (Iowa) had luck finding an ALPHABET CONE too. They are so darn cute!
Ellen (Shellin’ Ellen) and Roger (VA) had their own luck beside them.
It was an incredibly gorgeous day to hunt for shells while in the water like local sheller Candy and her snorkeling sister Megan visiting from Pennsylvania.
Thank you for coming out with us Angela, Sarah and Stacy (Maine) – next time we are gonna do a little SHARKS EYE dance together. haha
I think we were happy like Mike and Linda from New Hampshire to have this gorgeous day to hunt for shells. The water was soooo amazing.
Bob and Nancy from Houston are newbie shellers who found a lot of new shells for their list… but the best shell being this colorful little DUSKY CONE. i love those little shells.
So this is why I love days like this more than anything…. I looked over to see Diana from Illinois sharing her ANGEL WINGS with some of the other shellers that she didn’t even know. That’s so sweet! So when I found out that Carolyn, Roda, Bev and Lynette were part of Sanibel Shell Crafters, it meant even more that she was sharing her treasures with them. They donate so many hours to shell crafting they are such givers as well. It’s really so simple- share the shelling joy.
Diana kept a few of her gorgeous miniature shells like just two ANGEL WINGS, ROSE PETAL TELLINS, WORM SHELLS, COQUINAS and even quite a few branches of CORAL. I loved her collections so much, you can see I photographed them in the first photo- so pretty!
It was a beautiful day filled with laughter and joy from a boat full a beautiful folks.
