Today's shelling was so much better....the tides are beginning to get lower and the gulf was crystal clear!!
I ended up digging in pen shells I found.
|See the shells in and around the pen shells?|
In fact, I didn't have to walk very far at all in the 3 hours we were out there!
There must have been hundreds of Dosinia pairs there, they just help the pen shells trap the other shells. Unfortunately I had my camera with me so couldn't sit down and really dig....until Hubby came to where I was! I gave him my camera to put in his shirt pocket and sat and dug until the last possible minute! We didn't find anything spectacular, but I found lots of shells....I was going through my net while we were walking back to the car, and I'm sure I missed some! We had to get back home and start packing up because we are leaving tomorrow. :( I realized too, that my major problem this week was that I wasn't wearing my lucky shelling shorts, today I did!! I bet that was it all along!! ;)
|Hubby found an Awesome Shark's eye!|
|I found the smallest olive I've seen!|
|This is an average size olive|
|I found 5 wentletraps, and lost the smallest, only to find it in the dryer, in the pocket of the shell shorts!! :)|
|Hubby found him some Florida cones!|
|I found my first carrier shells, and found 2 in a row!!|
|And some beautiful Pear Whelks!|
