We worked around the house again today and then to Sanibel Fish House for an early dinner with plans to head to the beach for the end of the day. The Fish House did not disappoint, I had the shrimp basket and Hubby had the oysters, of course you have to end the meal with a piece of shared key lime pie!
We headed over to Gulfside City Park and noticed the Gulf was once again very clear with a few small waves....unfortunately the shells once again were pretty scarce. However the temperature was amazing, and I love to watch the birds along the shore and flying overhead and just take everything in around me! Beach therapy is the best therapy I know of!
Someone had gotten very creative down towards Casa Ybel...
|A place to sit and watch TV!|
|A dinosaur! (I think)|
and he found a PINK juvenile fighting conch!
Of course, I can always find some pretty scallops!!
As we were getting ready to leave, we were passing a group of fishermen, we heard one of the reels begin to spin....turned around and saw this young guy had quite a fish at the end of his line!
We stood there for several minutes watching, and he drew quite a crowd before it was over! After 10-15 minutes we began to see the result of his fight.
A ~5 foot shark...someone mentioned a lemon shark, I know it was really beautiful!
Here are a couple of videos I took of him catching it, then releasing it!
Today is our last day, :( ...not sure of our plans, but maybe one more shelling journey to share?!
