As you may know I was away for a couple of weeks, we were most fortunate to have missed the two coldest weeks so far this winter!!!   Didn’t take my laptop so I couldn’t keep up with  posting and visiting.   This year my daughter and I went to Marco Island.  I stayed there for a week last year in a house and enjoyed it so thought I’d try it again.   This time we decided to go for a condo on South Marco Beach, with a west exposure.   As a result the majority of my photos will be from that area…of course we went out,  but for the most part when we did I forgot my camera, as we were going shopping, to the Market or to eat!   If you’ve never been, the beach itself is a beauty, fairly wide, with most of the surface compact broken shells with some fine sand mixed in,  the waters edge is small shells, some live some not.  I enjoyed myself watching theses fellows moving along across the shells.   Shoes are required when walking along the beach unless you are right at the waters edge…shell.movining.2a.104

  1. As a native Miamian, I have made many trips to Marco, a lovely place. I recall as a child there was nothing there but the sea and mile of untouched sea shells, now you must find a way through condos to get to the water and most of the shells are for sale. I am glad you enjoyed , it’s a paradise.

    • It must have been awesome to see Marco through your eyes as a child…I’m generally not a fan of highrises, but, years ago that is what they did along water fronts until someone stopped them…the ones along Collier aren’t new, and what is new in Marco are low rise buildings and houses…we had two public access one building over on either side of us so someone is thinking of those on the other side of the street. As for the shells there are thousands…mostly small, I didn’t take any as they belong there but they are beautiful to look at, especially ones like the one in my photo! Yes, a paradise it is!!!

    • thanks…lol…depends on how you define fun! I might live in northern Ontario, but I don’t like the cold! The temps were that bad here as well for the two weeks I was away!

      • That’s why I put “fun” in brackets (or whatever you call those marks, I don’t seem to recall the name in English). -40C with strong winds is definitely not my idea of fun. :)

    • thanks Sylvia, I’ve never come across so many live shells …they were everywhere…it was very interesting to watch them trying to move themselves along!
