Artist's Description

Florida Crown Conch are found in coastal areas that are shaded by Mango Trees. There are many types of Crown Conch of all shapes and sizes and colors. Many have spines that encircle the edge. The best way to identify a Florida Crown Conch is by the seven whorls at the top of the shell. Their colors vary between shades of gray, brown and pale yellow.

While meandering behind two other Bubblers, (noffi) Liz and Kathy, I knew the reputation of this lovely beach. There were warnings in the parking areas of being careful not to harm the tortoise who often put themselves behind car tires. The beach was covered in shells whole and broken due to the cove shape and the washing of the waves during recent storms.
