The 120 year old lighthouse sits on a wildlife refuge and is at the southern most point of Sanibel Island. It was a great opportunity to capture some more pictures of the beautiful birds and wildlife that make their home here.
The beaches of Sanibel Island are known for being great places for sea shell gathering, and I loved the natural flora and fauna of this particular beach. The driftwood created natural sculptures along the shoreline.
and of course – palm trees!
Fishing is also a past time that is enjoyed here whether on the fishing pier or right in the water.
People of all ages enjoy the beach.
including us crazy 52 year-old BF beach bums. 🙂
After a warm and sunny morning and afternoon at the beach, we found a cute little restaurant, the Island Cow, where we sipped on White Mango Sangria while dining alfresco where I enjoyed an amazing paella and Janet a crab-stuffed grouper.
It was a great place to hang out with colorful adirondaks…
And even beach-themed corn hole.
Today is Janet’s birthday. We celebrated for an entire week. The trip was a birthday gift for me from Marty and a celebration of a lifelong friendship. Happy Birthday my dear friend Janet!
I love you, and I sure am missing you and that beautiful 70+ F degree weather!
Our high was 0 (yep – that is ZERO) degrees F yesterday in Mars, and most of the day was in the negative category!
Only makes me appreciate it all more. I am smiling while snuggling in with my hoodie and sweats sitting by a warm fire fondly missing and reminiscing…
at Life in Between.
Cheers & Hugs,
