Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time. ~ Steven Wright

Taking beach combing finds and arranging them in to perfect order.

The shell line stretched the length of Blind Pass Beach on Manasota Key.

Heading north from Blind Pass Beach will eventually bring you to the rocks. At high tide this area is impassable. On Monday this tide was a minus -0.3.

Lots & lots of shells hiding behind the rocks.  The looking has to be quick because the tide has turned and the water is rising.

The victims of the latest Red Tide outbreak from Christmas Day.  The county clean-up crews have cleared most of the beach but missed some of the more remote areas.

Beautiful pink.

It's about a mile walk to the rocks from the main Blind Pass Beach.  Head north (or facing the gulf > go to your right) 


  1. Oh how I'd love a day at the beach. My friend Traci is on Sanibel right now at the Shellabaloo and having a great time!

  2. Looks like you found some pretties!!! In the picture, one of the fighting conchs has a purplish hue to it, very unusual! Very pretty scallops too.

  3. Beautiful photos!

    Happy New Year to you and your loved ones. May 2013 be everything you hope for and more. Blessings. xx

  4. Beautiful photos and shells! Thanks, Karen!

  5. Can you save the "pink" stuff? What is it?

  6. I envy you :) I live on the beach in Germany, but I never saw that many and beautiful shells. One day I'll come over....
