After a chilly 55 degree night, it continued to drift to a warmer temperature of 73 today. It was windy at times with southern gusts of wind up to 24 mph. This evening the wind changed to the NW, perhaps that will bring some good shelling. We have a high surf advisory until tomorrow evening, due to yet another cold front passing through.
Early this afternoon we went out to Turner Beach on the Captiva side of Blind Pass. Since there was supposed to be rough water, we thought there might be shells piling up there, but there really weren't a lot.
After we found nothing at Blind Pass today we headed to access 1 off of West Gulf Dr. There were a lot of shells washing in and we did pick up a few. The beach was deserted when we got there but by the time we were ready to leave there were some people walking dogs and some were shelling. The temperature had dropped to about 67 when we were there, so without jackets, we didn't stay long.
There was a piece of sea glass here.
See what's in the Buttercup?
