    I collected 2 big bags of shells while on the beach at Singer Island. What did you use to identify your shells? I love the peachy ones.
    What a beautiful beach!!

      Fantastic! A good introductory guidebook is “Florida’s Fabulous Seashells”. I need to go too! 🙂

      I want to add a recommendation to go with my other comment. The absolute best book I have, and a MUST for anyone who loves the beach in Florida, is the book “Florida’s Living Beaches” by Blair Witherington (available on amazon).

    What beach in Jupiter did you find these beauties

    • Pam says:

      Just north of Blowing Rocks Preserve. Depending on the tides and wind, the shells come in or there is just sand covering everything up. You just never know!
