Molly Boatman, of Wilmington, Ohio, found a large lightning whelk on July 19 on the beach off of Captiva Drive on Captiva. She reported that they have been vacationing on the islands for about 15 years and it was their first-ever, large shell find. She believed Hurricane Elsa helped bring it ashore.
