I am so exited, I just absolutely can not contain myself. I’m going to Sanibel for the weekend. I’ve been planning to go for a couple years now – but for some reason or another, it hasn’t worked out. Considering my seashell obsession…and obsession is being kind…its more like an addiction, I can’t believe I haven’t gone sooner – since it is only a 2 hour drive from where I live.
I’ve been doing some research on the best part of the island for shelling and I’ve learned that it depends on what kind of shells you want. Well – of course, I want ALL KINDS…but I’ll start off with searching for the larger ones since I have a more than adequate supply of medium to small shells. I picked the Blind Pass area as it seems one of the best for shelling… so I am hoping that was a good decision.
My husband is going with me – which is a miracle unto itself, because it’s so hard to get him to go anywhere on the Gulf Coast…as he is a Florida Keys (on the Atlantic side) kind of guy. He (says) is going to help me collect shells – let’s see how that goes… he really doesn’t have much of a passion or interest in shells. Although, he is really a good sport because he is basically surrounded by them at home.
I hope to share my inspirations (and photo’s of my shell loot) when I return. Maybe I can create some of these awesome accessories for my home...as shown in Better Homes & Gardens - Decorating with Seashells.
