Another beautiful fall day on the Gulf of Mexico!

Here's my morning haul. Went out again in the afternoon and got more... someone on Facebook coined the word: SHELLMANIA! LOL!!!


What the world needs not, is love, sweet love...

"Freely you have received, freely give"

The morning was quite chilly but things warmed up by noon.

The highlight of the day was giving away shells to a couple who I saw on the beach. The woman had a cane and could barely walk but was determined to collect some sand in a cup to take home. Her patient husband helped her as they returned to their car where I met them with a bag of shells. When I saw the joy on her face, I quickly grabbed another bag to give before they drove off. They both were overwhelmed - this made my day!
"Freely you have received, freely give."

So no shell photos today but here are a few others...

Shell Washing Night

Today I gave 4 bags of shells to a co-worker who has 4 children, so had to get more shells ready for the next recipients!

Beautiful clear, warm and breezy day

Good night...

Shelling Between Rain Showers

The sun hardly came out all day but that didn't stop this sheller!

It was actually quite pleasant after the rain stopped

This guy thought I was throwing food for him when I was tossing out unwanted shells LOL

Bumble Bees and Butterflies at my patio

Not many at the beach today

That's about it for our sunset...

Shelling at Sunset

Lately after work, been walking to one spot which had lots of shells and tonight was no exception...

And the bonus was seeing another lovely Florida panhandle sunset too!

Sunday Show and Tell

Went out early this beautiful fall morning and found a honey hole!

... which included 3 Lightning Whelks

A Facebook friend requested 100 Scallops to decorate a mirror for his wife

Rode the bike to St Andrews State Park... the water was so clear and beautiful

It was a lovely day

Every sunset is beautiful

Hello Moon

Can you see Venus? It's near the middle of the photo
