Greetings from Long Island New York!

Greetings from Long Island New York!

Summer is upon us and its time for pools, bbq’s and the beach!

After the long and cold winter it has been great to be able to get outside – take long walks on the beach and start collecting shells again!

A favorite pass time of mine from childhood and into middle age – collecting shells has been both relaxing and exciting at the same time.  It is like a treasure hunt that can bring you into an almost Zen like state during the search!

My long time haunts have been on the beaches of Long Island.  As a Pisces I could not imagine growing up anywhere but near the Ocean.  Point Lookout and Long Beach were always the places that I have visited and you can find some great shells.  Sometimes it is easy and sometimes requires a little work! This fall I found a sand dollar for the first time ever on a Long Island Beach!

I have also had success on Shelter Island.  It has been a while since I have been there but we found some great stuff kayaking out to this little island with an abandoned home.

If you like rocks – the north shore of the island is rockier than the south shore.  Head out east – visit the beaches, farms stands, and plethora of wineries!

Off Long Island, my favorite hunting spots have been on Eagle Beach in Aruba, Bermuda, St.Barts,  Barbados (Maxwell Beach) and Florida!   My dream is to make it to Sanibel Island, though I fear I may need to bring an extra bag for all of the shells I imagine I would find there!

To all of the happy shellers out there – keep looking – you are never too old or young to go hunting for shells!

Enjoy the summer!
