A memory is what is left when something happens and does not completely unhappen. ~Edward de Bono
We got up before sunrise this morning for our final shelling day, and it was much cooler and cloudy, so I wasn't able to take a picture to share with you of the sunrise. The shelling was great again today as you can see from the pictures below! We managed to collect 2 'boards' worth of shells this morning and a total of 6 more alphabet cones!! This is obviously alphabet cone territory this trip!! We also found this huge horse conch buried in the tidal pool! We decided he was too big, and needed so much work that we would leave it on the shore for someone to appreciate!
|Horse conch front view, almost invisible against the sand|
|The inside view, it still has beautiful color!|
|Hubby got 4 alphabet cones!!|
|...I got 2!|
|He also got 2 beautiful king's crowns!|
|Today's finds part A|
|Pear Whelks and a paper fig|
|Both sides of a spiny jewelbox* and sharks eyes (Moon snails)|
|Baby horse conchs....I think the horse conch is my favorite!!|
|Banded and true tulips and a nutmeg|
|This is 3 days shelling worth....not bad huh?!!|
We head back home to VA tomorrow, and much cooler weather, I love Sanibel and I am always so sad to leave! Lily seems to like it here, so we plan to bring her back as often as we can! I hope you have enjoyed sharing our trip!!
Hopefully I'll post more often, my normal life is not nearly as exciting as these trips, but I'll try to post more often!
