They are members of my Englewood Shell Club and we have spent the past two days treasure hunting in Islamorada and other parts of the Florida Keys.
Some hunted underwater, wearing wet suits and snorkeling gear to better find the prizes they sought.
Some stayed on shore, hunting under rocks and in hidden crevices.
When we boarded the bus at the end of the day's search, our club president asked to see what treasures we found.
