Sanibel Island

Caving in Florida? Not quite the cave, but its the thought that counts, right?

Sunrise on the Ocean

Paul on our boardwalk over to the beach

A Sandy Sunset

Three little shells all in a row, washed up just so.

The Sanibel Lighthouse. There are two geocaches here actually.

Seagrapes, Paul and little Mom. There are some lovely little shops on the island - MacIntosh Books, Three Crafty Ladies & Suncatchers have been my favs so far. There are no McDonalds, no Wal-Marts, no billboards and the preferred mode of travel seems to be bicycles or boat.

This little guy was hiding in a piece of PVC that had washed up on shore. I picked it up to throw it away (along with various other plastic junk) and discovered him hiding amongst the tiny barnicles. We've seen a few more of his size clinging to pieces of seaweed and a few larger ones on the sandbar. At low tide the other day we went out to the sandbar that had all of 2 inches of water covering it and were surprised to see huge live Welks and some huge sandollars, which we placed farther out so they wouldn't get stepped on.

Me after lunch at the Mucky Duck on Captiva Island.
