Shellers Oscar and Ginette in Panama City Beach

This was Oscar & Ginette's first visit to Panama City Beach. The friendly shellers are from Ottawa and have been here for a few months but are leaving Tuesday.

We met yesterday morning while I was digging up shells some of which they were thrilled to have. Then today, saw them again here where I dug last week, he with a trowel and she with a large shell piece, digging up a storm. They thanked me for showing them "how to dig for shells"... FUN!

It was a beautiful windy day and I was rewarded when I walked at St Andrews State Park early this morning by this find in the sand dune... I think it's a Quahog Shell

Here are few scallops I found along the shore

A few goodies from this afternoon: Scotch Bonnets, Augers and one of my favs, White Baby Ears

A lovely sunset tonight

Hit the Motherload

This afternoon dug in an area I've been plowing for a few weeks and SHAZAM! I hit the motherload WOW!

I just happened to bring 2 bags which I filled to capacity weight

A fellow shell lover stopped by and Nancy filled her cup to the brim as well

Tip of the iceberg

Lightning Whelks Galore!

Here's the largest of the 3 sundials I found

Yours truly... the Happy Beach Bag Lady!

It was foggy but went out and found these near the same spot

Today's Keepers

An approaching storm made for lots of wind and waves which is GREAT for shelling! These were all from the beaches at St Andrews State Park this morning.
