Max and Mason Wu

The Wu family spent a week finding seashells and fishing on Sanibel Island, Florida, a top shelling location in the United States. They’d been invited by family friends who had vacationed there in the past. It was the Wu family’s first time shelling, and they all loved it, including parents David and Cindy and (on left) Max, 9, and (on right) Mason, 8. All of their shells were found at the bottom of the ocean rather than from the shore. They used a shelling shovel, and sometimes they would use their toes to dig until they felt a shell, and then they would dive down to retrieve it. Their favorites were the Lightning Whelks. During high tide, the family went fishing – David caught snook, trout, and redfish. They spotted manatees and dolphins swimming around them. They plan to return next summer.
