Thank you for the heads up regarding Honeymoon Island. We were just told by some members of The Englewood Shell Club that it is a great place to collect shells! Is the ban on only live shells or any shell?
When they went into people's trunks, were they looking into their swimming trunks or their automobile trunks?

They looked into all the pails, and then made them go to their cars. Opening up the car trunk, there were other buckets in it. Although, at the time I thought perhaps they were looking for drugs. But, no they were looking for live seashells. The three of them ( in their 50's) were put into the police car with their finds and they drove off.
I found it a great place to look for shells all the way at the tip of Honeymoon Island. However, wouldn't touch a live shell!!!!

Honeymoon Island is a part of the Florida State Park system. I posted something to this effect several weeks ago. No live shelling is permitted in any Florida State Park. I live very close to Honeymoon, and know of no reason why you can't pick up dead shells on the beach. Sometimes I'll find almost nothing on the beach, and other times there are many washed in--just like any other beach! It's likely to be better after strong westerly offshore winds.
