The stars were aligned and it was a wonderful morning of walking in the mud. Many excellent shells were collected and NO live shells were collected. Walking the flats is always a learning experience. Kathy and Carol were excited to learn about this unique ecosystem. Carol made many new finds and Kathy loved just being out there. Carol found a beautiful true tulip, rose tellins and a few whelks. Kathy also found a few whelks, Morton egg cockles, a perfect banded tulip and many more. It is always fun to see the shells live in their environment. It was a beautiful morning with two happy shellers.
