    This morning, Sarah and I walked from (Sanibel) Beach Access 7, to Bowman’s Beach.  As stated in previous posts, this walk is one of our favorites, and today’s was the nicest YET.  The temperature and breeze were a perfect compliment to the clarity and color of the water.  The shell piles were plentiful […]

I have strange luck when it comes to spiders.  I seem to walk through their work a little too often for my taste. Recently, Sarah and I were walking through the neighborhood late at night.  We usually don’t bring a flashlight, so we tend to walk in the middle of the street – of course […]

Sarah works at a popular retail store out here (on Sanibel) and hears the complaint “they’re aren’t any shells out there”  . . .   often. Or, the comment “every year there are less and less shells”. Nonsense! I took this picture just yesterday.  PILES of shells – literally!  The fact is, you never really […]

We don’t have many plants in our yard, other than “native” plants (seagrape, palms, etc..) but one thing we have found that grows EXTREMELY well here is a pineapple.  Yup…a pineapple!  I swear it’s the most low maintenance plant I have ever had!  If you have never grown one before, you should really give it […]

Lately, there have been reported incidences of large saw fish being caught off Sanibel beaches.  While I have never heard of this before, I do know several people who have caught saw fish . . . but always in the Caloosahatchee River – which if you travel it far enough east, you will wind up […]

A herd of fighting conchs – super low tide – Sanibel beach access 6

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in sanibel beach, sanibel nature, sanibel shelling

Yesterday, Sarah and I came upon a herd of fighting conchs who were “adjusting” to a super-low tide.  I was able to get this video with my phone. These guys travel together, are herbivores, have a trunk like a elephant and eyes – COOL!  They are called fighting conchs due to the fact that if […]
