seashells at sanibel lighthouse

Evening walks on the beach by the Sanibel Lighthouse have been so lovely this week…. or should I say “shellovely” since beachcombing has been so much fun finding a few shells here and there too. ;)

Carlos and Stephanie actually found more than just a few… Wow! It really didn’t look like there were that many big shells on the beach but they have exceptional sheller’s eyes. They both said they had a blast working at getting that keen shelling focus in tune.

Marjorie found two pretty spectacsheller double SPINY JEWELBOXES completely empty with gorgeous colorful insides. Look at those amazing spines.

I was shelling too (of course…. duh. heehee) but mostly I was taking in some much needed beach therapy. I haven’t been able to take advantage of my long beach combing walks much this winter because of one reason or another. Real life happens even in paradise but to be able to see this makes me able to breathe again. I hope you can see those cute little tiny BUBBLE shells and a sweet little WHELK in this next photo set off with colorful puffy clouds and it makes you breathe a bit easier too. They are truly miracle workers.

Sheeesh and then the sun setting over the Sanibel pier…. be still my heart.

Ahhhhh and the perfect ending to a beautiful evening….
