Minis and a Redfish

Good things come in very small packages! Here are some of the mini shells that I found at the Sanibel Lighthouse today. In that mix: murex, cockle, juvenile fighting conch, sundial, lightning whelk, tulip, shark eye, king’s crown and even a ¬†kitten paw.

While I was shelling on one end of the island, my older son was fishing at the J.N. Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge. He scored, too! A monster redfish! Yes, he put him back in the water after the photo. The big fish swam off in a hurry. Very cool.
