Sea Shells by the Sea Shore
The Gulf shoreline is prime real estate for finding the perfect shell, and there’s no place better than the barrier islands of southwest Florida. Fort Myers Beach may not get the same notoriety for its shelling as Sanibel, ranked tops by Coastal Living Magazine, but Parke Lewis knows of no better place than right here."What makes our beach so great for shelling is our estuary system and all the sea grass where these creatures feed and grow,” he said. Leading a small group of locals along the beach, Lewis picked up tiny shells no bigger than the tip of his pinky finger and ones nearly the size of his hand, providing an explanation of how they each got here.
