What a day!

Crystal Clear Water
Another beautiful day on Little Hickory Island. The temps have been hitting low 80's so it has been gorgeous here. It's getting harder and harder to find a parking spot though- so many visitors are here. I can understand why just look at the water!!

HORSE CONCH
My mom spotted this about 10 feet off the shore, unfortunately it was still occupied.  But this nice man held it for me to snap a picture!

It was a special treat to come across this "Shell tree" and it really made you stop and take a good look. Thanks to whoever keeps adding the shells!

Cayo Costa State Park

The weather has been chilly and rainy so I thought I would share some pictures of Cayo Costa State Park. It is always a great shelling trip. If you have never been- you really should  plan a trip. From Pineland(Pine Island), you take a ferry ride over on Tropic Star. They have several options for you to choose from depending on how long you want to stay on the Island.

The Olive Shells were incredible- We were having so much fun we couldn't stop picking them up! Here's a look at the days bounty- Can't wait to go again!

Here are the shells I found today- Such a great variety!
