2016 kicked off the year with a bang after very cold weather and a few storms brought gobs of seashells to our beaches of Sanibel and Captiva in January and February. That started the seashells flowing as Clark and I caught the travel bug to explore many different shelling destinations around the world. And then there’s another travel bug I caught ;).. that was a very big “bug”. heehee
Here are my top 10 posts for 2016… Enjoy the count down from #10 to #1 post this year.

Happy New Year!

Great though some of the other posts are, the Shell Love Bug is my favorite. I am very happy that she now has decorations on her hubcaps too…
In my opinion, this photo in today’s post is the most beautiful one you ave taken of her Pam!
Ok so #6 is my favorite post ! And Roxy is my favorite shell hound! Guess who? Hi Pam it’s one of those crazy Carolina girls Karen! We had so much fun with you and Clark on our trip! Just finished planning our 2017 Portsmouth trip and wish you could make it again. Will see you in the Fall!
Happy New Year to you, Clark and the kitties( can’t wait to meet your new addition ).

Life is Good!!!
I’m late in writing to you but if you or Pam see this, I’d like Pam to give you my email. After Pam’s post last year, I made a trip to Portsmouth and loved it. This year I’d like to try your SC location but I need more info on where you went and how you got there, etc. So, … If you get this, I’d love to hear from you. Thank you.
Happy New Year!
#10 and 3! Happy New Year! May 2017 be just as shelltastic!
Number 2 was my favorite
Its hard to pick, but i LOVE number 1 & 3.
Happy New Year to you!
I can’t pick a favorite, because any picture that has a shell in it has a special place for me. I love shells.
The pics are jumping around again on this post. I don’t know why but it really makes it hard to see and read.
OMG- well, I must say – my favorite(s):
# 1 -10!
Thanks for taking us on all of your shelling adventures. Just getting caught up on your blog. Happy New Year to you and Clark and your purr-fect family.
Happy New Year Pam. I live all year long vicariously through your blog awaiting my own “happy times” when I am finally able to come down to Sanibel. Please keep the adventures and updates coming. Happiest of New Years to you and Clark.
I just adore the Shell Love Bug! It is truly a work of art!
I think you nailed the order, Pam, especially featuring the Shell Love Bug. My second favorite though is the Beach Therapy video. It says what we all struggle to explain about our shelling obsession! I shell Florida vicariously through your posts, but I am exploring Texas gulf beaches this winter…always new places to explore for the shellventurous!! Thanks for the education you constantly provide for us!
Hey dear friend – just seeing your smile, and of course that lovely Shell Love Bug (one of the best periods in my life, helping you with that jewel) – I miss you, girlfriend! Love what you’ve done with your website!!!!
