The mood was far from blue as we left Captiva behind and watched the sun rise at one of my favorite places on earth. The veteran shelllers returned from last week and we explored another Island. I wanted to find tusk shells in a remote region of the island. We found tusk shells and a cornucopia of miniature shells. The Sanibel Sisters would have been having a field day with there tweezers. We found rice shells, mini olives, bubble shells, augers, and 8 tusk shells. Then we traveled to a sand flat and explored the beauty of the live shells. The trip was most enjoyable. The sounds of the osprey in the morning, hearing the dolphin breath and woodpeckers peck,was most pleasing to the senses. I look forward to exploring more in October with the Veteran Shellers.
