A fantastic seashell for beachcombers to pick up is Sanibel's infamous scallop shell. You'll find the strawberry colored ones in abundance. The patterns never cease to amaze me. Rare finds include the orange, yellow, gray, black, and all white scallops.
Finding Treasure on Sanibel
When I go shelling, I concentrate on a particular type of shell or color or even size. In this case, the scallop shell jumps out. It's stawberry color makes it a wonderful shell to collect. The scallop shell in the picture above has an orange line running through it right down it's middle. Sometimes you'll find them with several orange lines and the shell reminds one of a beautiful sunrise.
How good is your shelling eye? Can you identify any other shells?
I've been in love with having sand between my toes since I was a teenager taking the ferry across the bay to arrive at Presque Isle State Park (aka The Peninsula) in Erie, PA.
