20 Nov Shelling Excursion
The November full moon was setting when I left the Marina with four hard core veteran shellers. The wind was blowing 25 to 30 mph out of the northeast. We traveled to secret spot number four and hit the low tide perfect. Nancy found a beautiful alphabet cone. The olives were all over the place, most of them were alive. You could see the tracks of the olives at the tide line. Many miniatures were collected. (The sanibel sisters would have had a heyday) The wind was still strong as we pulled the anchor and went to another spot farther up the beach. The wind was so strong most of the shells were covered with sand. Gary always manages to find something unique. On this trip he found a nice kings crown. I always look forward to taking out this hardy group of shellers. This trip they were extremely hardy dealing with the wind and watching Captian Brian trying to make the anchor hold.
