|Sunray Venus Clams, coquina (butterflies), kitten paws and jingles|
|Small coral bits found on Sanibel|
|Mini sand dollars from Bunche Beach yesterday.|
We got to Sanibel early this morning, and there was a bit of a chill to the air....even the sand felt a little bit cool under my feet. It was by no means cold, and the Gulf didn't even have any 'shock' to it when you walked in it. We were so early we beat most of the birds there this morning! These guys came flying in just before I snapped this!
I took this just has these guys ran in from the park, and took flight....hunting for breakfast!
...As the sun appeared, so did the birds! It just looks like spring doesn't it?....Pinks, yellows, oranges, lavendars....
It was another beautiful morning, Spring has Sprung.....
The stars were out....
Even this Brittle star was dancing a jig...
I noticed a little bit of spring orange color in the sand, see it?.....could it be????
From this moment on, the shelling was SO much better than the days previous! Our last day was a success, and so much fun!!
Remember the pic at the beginning of this post, shells from the last 4 days?.....Here is just today's finds!
Now that's more like it!!!!
Here is the Horse Conch all cleaned up, notice the 'repairs' he has done over his growing!
Notice Hubby's Horse Conch on the left of the ruler in that awesome deep orange, and I got an angel wing too!
Seems purple or pink was the scallop color of the day!
I found this Florida Cone in it's Springy colors....
...and this small King's Crown!
I'd call today a success, wouldn't you??? It was a welcome change!!
We head back North tomorrow....it was 84 here today, and a high of 48 at home in Virginia, not looking forward to that, but that's why we call this paradise...right?? I will have some more posts in a few days....! Stay tuned, and thanks so much for tagging along with us!
