Island Hopping with Admins!

I'm still here, just been too busy (and lazy) to post! Shelling hasn't been exceptional, but the Beach Therapy certainly has! Shellcrafting therapy a couple of times this week has been too!!

I am an admin (administrator) for a facebook page called "The Shellinators", there are 10 of us that admin the group and we're from all over the country! Rarely, if ever, have we been in the same place at the same time, but we have still become great friends! Four of us, Cindy, Liz, Cheri and I decided to go out on a Shelling excursion together yesterday....what fun it was!! ....the shelling was good too!!

We started out just as the sun came up...another beautiful day!
Me, and Cindy heading out with Capt. Nate at the Helm!
Cindy and her beautiful Smile....whatever the conditions are! 
Liz and Cheri had the wind at their backs!

The shell hunt begins....
Cindy, Cheri and Me!

Liz, Cheri and Cindy
This pelican was kind enough to allow a nice photo as we passed him by...
This Calico Crab was testing the waters.....I think it was too cold for him!
This live True Tulip was huge!! 
But it's good to see lots of live shells out there....

Cap'n Nate stopped at Cape Pompano at the Dome Homes and grabbed this great pic!!
Cindy, Liz, Cheri and Cheri
The dome homes are beautiful, though sad that the Gulf is taking them over....there were 6, now there are 4....soon they will be a reef.

The birds obviously love them!

We all worked hard to find treasures....
and it paid off for each of us!!

Cap'n Nate wanted a pic with my favorites...
mine was a couple of Rose Murex and a nice Alphie!! (Alphabet Cone)
Pretty Rose!
Liz's were Rose Murex also!!
It turns out that we all found some nice Rose Murex which is awesome!

Cindy even found a Scotch Bonnet!!! 
Cheri posted a saying on our facebook page that absolutely sums us up:

“Friendship is about finding people your kind of Crazy” 

I'd say that pretty much sums us up!! So fun with these great Girls!! We gotta do this more often!

We all had a great time...and found great stuff!!


with some feathers too!
and mine!
and some of my favorites too...
Beautiful, tiny Lace Murex 
Florida cones

Alphabet Cones!!

Nice Olives!

Love those Horse Conchs!

Dark Nutmegs!
 and last, but not least..
Rose Murex....4-1/2!

We finished up with lunch together....we were all exhausted, but happy....hopefully you will see us together again....I leave in a couple of days...but there is always next time! 

Still have time for one more trip, so Stay tuned!!
