18 Apr Excellent Young Shellers
Shellers come from all over and many different ages in search of their favorite seashells. I was most impressed with the grandchildren of Pat and children of Jen. Ben has collected over 70 Wenteltraps. He has only been shelling for two years. On this trip he found three. Ben said, “I don’t find Wentletraps they find me.” He told me about the different types of Wentletraps and was pleased to find a Tusk shell. He was also more than elated to find a small sand dollar. Grandma had all the special containers to put them in. Izzy was also an amazing sheller. She knew the Coquinas and talked about Rose Tellins. The knowledge Ben and Izzy possessed about shells was inspiring. It was a great pleasure to listen and learn from two excellent young shellers. Thank you Ben and Izzy.
