Martha Stewart Blog Revisits Sanibel Shell Fair

I was excited to be mentioned in the Martha Stewart blog by my friend Hannah Milman. She has been a long time supporter of the Sanibel Shell Fair. The photos she captured of the beautiful shell work and shells at the 75th  annual shell fair are spectacular. Thank you Hannah for a great post!

P.S.  One of my favorite pictures in this blog is the Black Tahitian Shell and Pearl, gotta love those pearls.

I have been a Shelling Guide to Cayo Costa State Park since 1995. Many people know me as the Shelling Guide and Captain with Captiva Cruises over the past 20 years. In 2016 I began solely offering private small boat charters to the islands of Pine Island Sound including Cayo Costa State Park, Cabbage Key, Useppa Island, Pine Island and North Captiva. I am a certified Florida Master Naturalist, licensed USCG Captain, avocational photographer, seashell enthusiast and passionate about the history, people and culture of Southwest Florida, especially Cayo Costa. I volunteer as a member of Friends of Cayo Costa State Park and have great respect for the heritage of Cayo Costa. My goal is to provide guests with an overall experience and appreciation for the waters, islands, shells, plants, marine life, wildlife, history and people of this unique area of Southwest Florida.

    Wow Brian – that is very cool! Can you do a post on how to tell if you have a true albino shell and not just a sun bleached one? I don't know how to tell the difference. Hope you're ok and survived the storm with no problems!
