Collecting Sea Shells

I love walking up and down the sea shore,  inhaling the fresh sea salt breeze. I hear the gentle rhythm of the waves and watch the sunset.

Sometimes I keep my eyes on the sand, letting them follow the tide line, looking for shells.  This article from Travel for Wildlife will equip you to determine whether the sea treasures you find are alive (give them back to the Gulf!) or dead (bring home as a reminder of peaceful beach days.)

(Some of the photos in the article are from Sanibal Island, just an hour and a half south of the Sleepy Sandpiper!)

“Quiet, relaxing…”

The Sleepy Sandpiper was just as the listing said it would be. Quiet, relaxing and close to the beach. Alexandra couldn’t have been more informative. And checked in to make sure all was going as planned, making sure we could reach her if we needed to. The list of local attractions and restaurants covered a lot of what we were looking for.
