In Panama City Beach the Gulf Coast Shell Club kicked off its annual show. It's a popular event.
With so much coastline in Bay County shell collecting is an activity enjoyed by visitors and residents alike a number of vendors were on hand sharing their collections, and educating people on the different shells available in our area.
They also had a warning believe it or not there are a lot of forgeries on the market. The event chairman says shell collecting is educational and a whole lot more.
