Florida has been my vacation destination ever since I was in my mom’s tummy, every Easter to Indian Shores and then years in Sarasota. It was always exciting stepping onto a plane in freezing cold Wisconsin and stepping off of a plane in warm Florida. So as soon as possible I took the chance to move here. I was 20, in Orlando and in love. Life took us to Manhattan, Chicago and finally back to the Sunshine. We ended up in Tampa a year ago. The year has been full of kids and housework, with a few beach weekends snuck in. That is until I found the “I Love Shelling” blog, I am hooked! Pam has brought out the sheller in me. I now try and make it to my home base beach on Honeymoon Island at least twice a week. I have a shell list to check off people! So I pay homage to Pam on Sanibel Island, with my finds on Honeymoon Beach. Although I am only a casual sheller, if that is even possible.
