I love walking Sanibel beaches…especially near the lighthouse…
This beach is not cleared and smoothed clear of these treasures like many beaches are.
I don’t know what all of these things are…so if you do please chime in.
If I have an ID wrong..let me know.
This looks like an egg casing ~I think it’s a Tulip egg casing but not sure.
Whelk egg chain
Look at all these shells…
There are piles of them on the beach..and it changes daily
There are areas on Sanibel roped off to protect nesting birds..very nice to see.
Also many signs that remind people that Live Shell collection is not allowed. I was told there is a 200 dollar fine for collecting live shells.
So please only collect shells that have no critters in them…and leave nesting and resting birds alone.
Yesterday Jeff and I went birding with Lillian and Don Stokes. We had a super time with them!
Thanks Lillian and Don for sharing your Sanibel and birding knowledge with us.
Jeff and I are on Sanibel for another four or five days~ we haven't decided where we will go from here. We have to be in Titusville on the 25th.
