I got to enjoy a quick visit to Anne’s Beach today in Lower Matecumbe and I found a few beauties. Unfortunately, the one above had a crab in it. (Although in the Keys, you can keep live shells [except conch] if you have a saltwater offshore fishing license.) I put him back 🙂
This fat little banded tulip was empty though! I got to take him home. Anne’s Beach is great at low tide, but at high tide, it’s near impossible to get in the water and search. I can always find shells over by the mangroves.
Anne’s Beach does have picnic tables and bathroom facilities. You will also find two parking areas about 1/4 mile apart.
