Tree Fort-Shelling Style

 Today we went out to the North Oasis beach at Honeymoon Island, we were about an hour and a half until low tide.  I found great things washed up around the trees, so I climbed in.  I shell pile is so deep that I found a lot of shells buried under rocks and in between the roots.  A tree line so close to the water is a great place to look.  IMG_5046

 I found some great stuff and displayed it on a “concrete” rock.  All colors of Olives, Augers and Juvenile Fighting Conchs, a Leopard Crab shell and Lightning Whelks.  I even found a fossilized shell, it looks like a very, very old Florida cone.  There were plenty on Fighting Conch shells, but most of them had tenants so I put them back out.  All in all is was a great day rummaging amongst the waves.
