Seashells are everywhere in Florida. They just are the symbol of everything Florida so why should I be surprised to see a car covered in seashells in the Sunshine State? It should be a natural thing, right?
When we picked Aaron and Erin up at the Southwest Florida Airport (RSW) we had a bit of time to kill and walked around a bit between Concourse C and Concourse D. Imagine my excitement when Chris showed me this amazing VW Bug.
The Shell Love Bug is on display and is covered in over 20,000 seashells. It was created to honor National Seashell Day in 2016 in in Lee County, Florida.
60 different species of shells adorn the vehicle from bumper to bumper and there were even a few on the dashboard.
65 volunteers and 1200 hours later this creation was born. Using seashells collected and donated from Fort Myers and Sanibel beaches this beautiful creation enhances the area in the airport and attracts many lookers and admirers.
I love anything that uses creativity and this fits the bill, don’t you think?
2017 is winding down and I am happy to embrace 2018 and see what it will bring. Please don’t forget to leave comment for our Comments for a Cause The Knox Foundation

That is quite something! Happy New Year to you and Mr. Diamond!! xx
Thanks, Darlene. Same to you! Give Dot a pat for me!
Pat and snuggle given. Dot is sending licks back. xo
Wow! Looks so fabulous! Do you know anything about how it was made?
Just what they posted on that sign—- pretty cool, huh?
No wonder you were excited. I would have been, too, to see this sea shell bug.
Isn’t it fun? I loved how they created such an amazing work of art on a car. We also saw an RV in an RV park covered in shells. It was when I was driving and there was no way to get back to get to it so you have to take my word for that. 🙂
Good golly Miss Molly, that’s something to behold! Wow!!
Isn’t it amazing?
Wow. That’s amazing!
It’s a pretty cool thing to see and not what I anticipated seeing in the airport!
So cool. I didn’t see it when we picked up my sister at the airport a while back.
Did you stop by the outlet mall when you were in that area? My mom works there! 😉
We didn’t stop by the mall but that may be in the works sometime ! What store does she work in? It looks like a great mall!
She’s the manager at the Cosmetic Company Store (across from the Nike store). Love that mall. So many different fountains… and good deals. 🙂
Okay–will keep that in mind if we wander over there! Thanks!
Oh my gosh, this is amazingly beautiful! (Sorry for the late comment!)
Talk about shell-acked!
