She Sells Seashells By The Seashore

Take this bridge and you will find yourself on Sanibel Island.  It is one of the top 3 shelling destinations in the world.  We ventured there today.  Fully expecting to see the beach covered in shells…our plan was to have a picnic lunch and then walk the beach.  There were shells but not what we expected.  It didn’t take us long to realise that the shells were on the oceon floor…tonnes of them.  I could feel a thick layer under my feet.

I had so much fun.  The waves kept hitting me from behind.  Between waves I would scoop up shells and check them out.  It took all I had to keep my footing.  The following series of photos were not posed for…just me having a good time.  Apparently Tat was very entertained because he couldn’t stop laughing so the photos stopped.  He fully expected me to fall over…I never did but was very soaked by the end.

This lighthouse is one of the first on Florida’s Gulf Coast north of Key West.  It stands 98 feet above sea level.  This iron skeleton tower was first lit August 20th, 1884. It is on Sanibel Island.

Psalm 118:24  The Lord has done it this very day; let us rejoice today and be glad.

  2. Looks like you had a ball!! And Tat too at your expense of course. 😉 I was at Sanibel when I was managing the call centre in Doaktown. At the companies expense, I got to stay at the South Seas Island Resort. Our centre took calls for them and made bookings. Quite the place! So glad you guys are enjoying this special time together. Hugs!
