Kiawah Island - a sheller's paradise

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Three weeks ago, my best friend Eliza had her bachelorette weekend at Kiawah Island in South Carolina.  I had never been before this trip.  I know it's hard to believe, but when you grow up on an island, you really have no reason to leave.  Not only are Eliza's friends lovely, and hysterical, but I was also treated with some of the best shelling of my life.  It's also a good lesson to keep in mind - sometimes you don't have to go far to find your next treasure.

If you are visiting Kiawah, or frequent the island and have never shelled via bike, that you rent one for your shelling adventure.  The best shells are north, and the point was pushing up sand dollars left and right.  Pushing up so many that I couldn't pick them all up.  Also, bring a bucket, and if you have the option of a basket for your bike, choose that option.

Great Tun (I almost started crying when I found it) and sand dollar.

Holy Sand Dollars!  I love the flat ones in the background.

Wonder what is hiding under the sand washed over them?

Gorgeous Kiawah Sand Dollars!
One of many treasures going home with me.
 I would love to hear about what you find on Kiawah Island.  I can't wait to go back!
