I believe this is an Atlantic Giant Cockle shell which I found on the north beach of Fort De Soto County Park in the Tampa Bay area of Florida. That morning I was at Fort De Soto to take the ferry over to Egmont Key for one of my Florida Master Naturalist classes and even though I didn’t take many images of the shells on this beach I couldn’t resist the heart shape I saw in this beautiful shell. As much as I loved the beaches in Florida it felt symbolic to find a Calico heart on the sandy shore of the Gulf.
I hope that you all spend the day with people you love or simply doing what brings you joy.
Life is good.
