National Seashell Day is next Wednesday, June 21st!
It’s a day dedicated to the seekers of small thrills and the finders of hidden treasures. A day of appreciation to the gracious nature of the sea. Join us for a celebration of the ocean’s precious gifts, hundreds of which wash ashore on our beach every day.
To help you get in a Shell State of Mind, our local visitors bureau is hosting a #NationalSeashellDayTwitter chat on June 21st at 1:00PM EST and you are invited to participate and shellebrate!
Each participant is asked to use the following hashtag when participating: #NSDChat
The moderator, @FtMyersSanibel, will ask 10 questions during the 60-minute period. Each participant is encouraged to respond, share their expertise and post photos. Below are the tentative questions for the chat:
