Feb. 24 – Visit to Captiva Island Beach and Shell Museum

We left early again this morning and were on the sand of the Captiva Island Beach for the low tide but only small shells were present.

We learned at the Shell Museum that to get the ‘big ones’, shellers go at night with flashlights an hour before low tide and/or snorkel in the shallow waters to find the large shells before they hit the beach.

Tomorrow, we will visit the Edison-Ford Estates in Fort Myers.

Have a great weekend.
