my husband and i always collect shells whenever we are at the seashore. Sanibel Island, Florida has been  said to be the best U.S. shelling spot, and one of the best in the world. we love to visit…i thinking it’s time to plan a trip. Sanibel is located off Fort Myers in the southern part of Florida.
