Sanibel and Captive Islands are well known for their beautiful shell-strewn beaches. You can always find shell seekers out and about doing the famed Sanibel "Stoop." That is, bending down and carefully sifting through hundreds of different varieties of seashells that wash up from the gulf of mexico daily.
It was unbelievably cold the day we decided to go to Cayo Costa - we really could of used our winter coats we brought with us from home! Cayo Costa State Park turned out to be another great shelling spot and a great for dolphin watching too!
