As promised… Sanibel Island, Florida Part 2… Treasures galore!!!
Everyday I went to the beach and collected shells, sticks, rocks and sea shell egg cases! And everyday I laid them out and photographed them. I also doodled some of them too (that will be in part 3’s post)! And just walking the grounds of the Waterside Inn where we stayed was a beautiful adventure!
Sea Treasures Day 1: Lightning whelk shell egg case, tulip shell egg cases, dead coral, stiff pen shell and pod.
Sea Treasures Day 2: Sticks, palm tree wood, nut shell, pod, charcoal, sea glass and shells.
Sea Treasures Day 3: Pod and a tree from the sea! Also, fiber from palm trees… I imagine that early peoples were inspired by this tree fiber to make fabric, it is warp and weft at it’s finest!
Sea Treasures Day 4: Broken stiff pen shells (they make the most beautiful shapes when they are broken), dead coral, pods, Atlantic kittenpaw shells, rough scallop shells, Atlantic giant cockle, broken sand dollar and barnacles.
Sea Treasures Day 5: Palm tree wood and bark, pods and we don’t know what the yellow and green things are!
Here’s some of the beautiful nature that we found on Sanibel Island.
It was so fun to sort through my sea treasures every evening and photograph them.
Even the shadows are lovely here!
Is there such a thing as professional sea shell collector? Cause that’s what I want to be when I grow up!
Happy end of Summer!
