A Tiny Bit of Beach Therapy

I'm very happy to let you know I'm back home in Ft. Myers, Florida for some much needed beach therapy! As usual this is a welcome change from real life, and I couldn't be happier! 

I did go out to the beach yesterday afternoon, I knew I needed to keep an eye on the sky since it is Summer in Florida, and thunderstorms are a regular part of the day....but I did get my toes in the sand and the surf, which was my first goal!

 Almost instantly worries are gone!  But, like I said, I had my eye on the sky....and it was there...

I figured I had at least a little time to go for a little therapy, the water was very nice and oh, so clear...

My first finds were these scallops, it's hard for me to turn down scallops, so this time I chose these two to take home with me... Love the oranges

I was able to walk down the beach for a short distance and came across an area where these guys were rolling around in the surf....
from left: Banded Tulip, Shark's eye, 2 Chestnut Turbans, Worm shells, a nice Lace Murex and Half of an Alphabet Cone!
Pretty soon I realized I needed to head back so I wouldn't get caught in the storm!
Dang, looks like it was going to be a good day to shell, I hastened by steps so I could get to the car in time, but I did see a little more orange....
From the top: Orange Scallop, Semele ( I believe it's a White Atlantic Semele), I can't decide if that is a coquina or a tiny Rose tellin, Keyhole Limpet, tiny Orange Scallop, Bubble Shell, Orange Jingles
I was out for a little over an hour, not nearly as long as I would have liked, but I did get safely back to the car before the bottom fell out!  Ahhhhhh, tomorrow is another day!

Stay tuned, I hope to have some great adventures to share with you, maybe just a slow stroll along the beach, or maybe some excitement!
