Beautiful day! I enjoyed relaxing and exploring with Susan (who is a wealth of knowledge on fossils and rocks) and Pam of I LOVE SHELLING. The trip started with the fossil hunter and the sheller exploring a new sand bar off the coast of Captiva. We then pulled anchor and traveled farther north to one of my favorite sea side towns, Boca Grande. We visited many of my favorite spots and a few secret spots (but not all of my secret spots). I enjoyed showing Pam and Susan a beach where you can find shark teeth. We could have spent all day there but it was time for lunch. Temptations restaurant on Boca Grande was a perfect place to talk shells and fossils while enjoying delicious food. After lunch we traveled to beautiful Cayo Costa. The landscapes were stunning and the conversations were equally satisfying. We collected augers, jingles, tusks, Susan’s 4th baby’s ear(yeah!), a gaudy nautica, worms shells, shark eyes, olives, lightning whelks, fighting conchs and shark teeth. Also, my favorite- the sea pearls. Thank you Susan and Pam for a full day of relaxing and exploring island style.
