The Shellabaloo was soooo much fun. I can’t even begin to tell you the great memories both hubby and I have from the Shellabaloo!Pam hubby Rob who wasn’t a “sheller” is now a sheller!! He even knows the names of many shells and when I asked what his favorite was of the shellabaloo he said THE WHOLE THREE DAYS!! He loved all of it! Now thats impressive.My favorite…meeting such wonderful people and spending time together talking and getting to know each other while shelling and walking the beaches together!

As one those at Shellabaloo 3, this was a dream come true for my sister and I! What a grand time we had there! Some serious shelling every day, wonderful breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and getting to know and share with some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet! Pam, Blanaid, Jessica, and all at the Island Inn made it so special for us and I thank you from the bottom of my heart! The terrific shells I found will always bring back so many special memories of Sanibel and Captiva Islands and all the nice people I met there. For those of you who are planning on coming to a future Shellabaloo, what a treat you have in store for you!

“Soooo much fun…still decompressing. Made friends with kindred spirits as Pam said. Felt as if we had known each other for years…so comfortable. Go whenever and however you can. Hoping for a reunion already.”

Cathy said

“I agree with Angela. I can’t express how much this week meant to me, finding wonderful shells and especially meeting such great people! Pam and “B” we’re so knowledgeable and helpful; EVERYONE was so friendly! I could never have imagined it would be so much fun! Great accommodations at the Island Inn, great food all week, and great weather, even with a few showers! I would love to have a reunion too, Marie! Thanks to all for a fantastic week!”
