The Jewel of Boca Grande

Gulfshore Life


“They’re exquisite, aren’t they?” says a guest sitting several couches away, her laptop open as she takes advantage of the morning hush to catch up on work in the living room of the Gasparilla Inn & Club. I’m examining an intricate arrangement of shells that hang in a frame on the mantel in my small section of the room. The pieces, small shell craft love letters that seafarers would make for sweethearts back home, appear throughout the historic resort, inviting guests to slow down, sit, examine, contemplate and relax.
