Beneath the surface...

You've been showing a lot of photos with shells. Are these taken on the beach? I dont' remember that many shells on Pensacola beach or the surrounding beaches when we were there.

Hey, Pat. Yes, all these were taken within a day or two of the time I took them. This particular shot is on the Sound side of the island. There is an area with a lot of oyster shells and shells that hermit crabs have claimed. It is not unusual to see a pretty shell and have it begin to walk away from you over there. ;-)

On the Gulf side, there are more shells than normal due to the high surf and the storm that came through on September 22. They are small, of course. You are correct that we generally have few. Only after Hurricanes Ivan, Dennis, and Katrina, plus the beach renourishment project when they were dredging, did we see some larger shells.
