Sanibel Island is an island off the west coast of Florida, near Fort Myers. It is oriented east and west, instead of north and south, and for this and other reasons is considered one of the best if not the best shelling beach in the United States.
Every March, Sanibel holds an Annual Sanibel Fair and Show. I've been fortunate enough to be able to attend twice, in 2009 and again in 2013. A large part of the show consists of some of the most beautiful art you have ever seen - all featuring shells.
These pictures were taken at the 2013 show.
And, an award winning bouquet.
Oh, this makes me want to go back. It's too late for this year's show. But, maybe next year.
