Shelling is a favorite pastime of mine, and the best part is, it can be done year-round.
Storms churn the sea, bringing up many long-hidden ocean treasures up on shore. Yes, the windy Winter months are harsher for shellers, but with several layers to keep warm (a rain poncho helps), you can gather those hard-to-find shells you’ve been waiting for.
Where I live, the Gulf Stream is ever-faithful to bring up surprises from all over. My latest goals are finding dark purple quahog and conch shells. I’m going to make some wampum jewelry with my trusty Dremel tool, and I need some conch shell to experiment making other jewelry beads, or whatever I come up with. Will post pictures when I can get further South…
Have you ever been to the beach around Sarasota or Clearwater, Florida? The sand is finely ocean-ground white quartz, and it looks like sugar. It feels cold on your feet! The water, because it’s “Gulf-side”, is very aqua, and words can’t even describe the beauty.
Here is a favorite design of mine – I included the pinkish sun-glow, the white sand, and aqua blue waters:
