What a day on the water with Dick and Sherri from Texas. We started the trip by seeing dolphin not far from the marina. We then spent the morning exploring the flats looking at live shells and finding some good species that were not alive. Sherri found a live cone shell. I have never seen a live cone on the flats. We then found another. What a treat to see something you have never seen before in the wild. Next it was off to lunch at the Tarpon lodge for lunch. After lunch we went to favorite island number one where we spent the rest of the afternoon. We covered a lot of area on this trip and collected many different species for an unseasonably warm December day.
