Sometimes I have to pinch myself to believe that living on Sanibel is real and not just a dream. This island is known as the 3rd best shelling location in the world. And I LOVE shelling. Then WHY don't I get to the beach more???? I keep asking myself that. I went out today for a couple of hours. I have to admit that this is about the first time in 6 weeks that I have been to the beach. I have either been too busy, too lazy, or have been on vacation. Last week, apparently, shelling was amazing. Less so today. Oh don't get me wrong there were lots of shells on the beach but just not the ones I was looking for.
OK, so there weren't exactly the kind of shells I was looking for. I love to find whelks, murexes, Sharks Eyes, Cones, etc. Today I discovered that it was ideal to look for miniatures so I put my Sanibel Stoop to good use and found the following goodies.
