19 Feb Let’s Shellabrate The Sanibel Stoop
History was made on Febuary17th, when over 700 people gathered at Bowman’s Beach to “Stoop” at the same time for the Guinness Book of World Record. I traveled by boat to the event with friends Doug and Ingrid from Canada. When I arrived in the chaos of 700 people trying to register for the “stoop” I first spotted Karen of THE ESSENTIAL BEACH COMBER. Then Pam of I LOVE SHELLING. The day only got better. Karen introduced me to a friend of hers who also loves the beach and blogs on SHELL BELLE’S TIKI HUT. We all joined the crowd on the beach and waited for the record breaking STOOP to begin. A helicopter flew over the crowded beach to take a photo of this historical moment (you may notice that I don’t have any pictures of us actually doing the stoop, because I was stooped over). The day was filled with shelling stories, fossiling stories and blogging stories. Now we have “stooping” stories. Friday, February 17, was a day for the record books.
