As I hear about the terrible winter storms north of Florida, I feel a wheeee bit embarrassed to be complaining about the chilly weather of 54 degrees here on Sanibel Island that swept through yesterday. So before I get out my big down coat and boots with wool socks to head to the beach, I’m hoping if I post the photos I took earlier in the week from our iLoveShelling trip to Big Hickory (when we were still in bathing suits, shorts and tee shirts), it’ll warm us all up a tad.
There were warm, colorful shells strewn all over the bright sunny beach. ;)
Our group was able to wade in the Gulf Of Mexico without a care in the world.
And find ALPHABET CONES, LACE MUREXES, LETTERED OLIVES and FLORIDA FIGHTING CONCHS.
GAUDY NATICAS, ROSE PETAL TELLINS, ANGEL WINGS, SHARKS EYES and NUTMEGS.
Wow…. and more ALPHABET CONES!
So many shellers with their ALPHIE eyes on!
It was such a pleasure to spend such a gorgeous day hanging out with so many cool shellers.
SEA PEARLS, DRIFTWOOD and WORM SHELLS…. I absolutely loooooove these beach treasures.
JUNONIA Sue (from my last post) and friends were with us!
Thank y’all for coming out and enjoying the day with me.
A day of beach combing always warms the heart…. and hopefully helps give a little warmth even if it’s virtual shelling. Stay safe, y’all!
I’ll let ya know what these high winds from this winter storm washes up on our beaches soon. The waves are entirely too rough right now but the anticipation… always exciting! :)
PS- I’m trying to work out some new dates for the next few months so once I get everything worked out, I’ll post them on the Shelling Trips page HERE. Hopefully soon!
