I was lucky enough to be on Sanibel during Pam Rambo (of I Love Shelling fame) cruise to Cayo Costa. Just in case he's not recognizable in this photo, that is none other than captain Brian Holoway at the wheel of Captiva Cruises boat. You can look at his blog here..Capt Brian's Observations

Both are excellent to help with your Sanibel withdrawal symptoms :)
We have landed and have disembarked to go our own ways.
Luckily for me, there were lots of things to photograph because the shells just weren't there.
Don't get me wrong, there were plenty of shells, just not enough for all the people that had taken the cruise. You pretty much had to be the first few off the boat and you had to high tail it ahead of everyone else. The lady who did that found plenty of beautiful shells.
I am just not that competitive. Plus I was busy taking photographs.
The Periwinkles on this tree are the closest I came to lots of good shells..lol
Not that I am complaining. It was a beautiful day
And I have seen these drift trees so many times on Capt Brian's blog and I really wanted to take my own pictures of them. Although Brian's are much better.
It was still so cool to try to capture them.
At times it was like I had the place all to myself.
And of course I had to capture the birds
This is another boat that pulled up as we were getting ready to leave. Love their sunny yellow umbrellas! Just remember if you take the cruise - sit up front and be the first off the boat if you really want good shells.
Ok..you shell lovers, I have teased you long enough.
Here is part of my overall haul....most of these found on the beach in front of Sanibel Inn.
Hope you've enjoyed these posts on my love of Sanibel because I have more to come......until then Thank you so much for popping by! Please make my day and leave a comment.
May all your dreams come true..............
