As well as being bird lovers (see my post here) we are also novice shellers. Collecting shells is addicting as there are so many wonderful shells, with new ones relentlessly washing ashore.
Here are some photos of our collections:
These are jingle shells - they are delicate, and come in many colours.
So far, sand dollars have been rare, but one good storm could change all of that for us.
There are many partially broken lightening whelks, so finding whole ones is a real treasure!
Tim found this live conch while we were shelling. I took some photos of it and then he put it back in the ocean, hoping it will survive. Look at how cute its little face is!
Tim found this heart-shaped shell piece ... I put it in my collection. :)
We have so many shells already ... and we still have a trip planned to go to Sanibel Island - one of Florida's top shelling locations due to its location and orientation ... can't wait to see what we find there!
