Sanibel

Sanibel, for those who aren't familiar with FL, is a small island off of Ft. Myers in the Gulf. It's a quiet island best known for its beaches, which are prime for shelling, and for the wildlife preserve. It's not a place to go and party (like Key West); it's a place to go and relax -- and that's exacting what the hubby and I did this weekend.

Our trip revolved around one thing: the beach. We spent most of our time lying on the beach, enjoying the sun and our respective reads. I think I really needed this weekend: I slept a lot, finished two books that I was part way through, got some rays, enjoyed the clear Gulf water, and even got a run in (also along the beach -- it was a beautiful run, even ran past a couple getting married at sunset).

We got home this afternoon, and since my hubby was able to finish Harry Potter at the beach, I plan on picking the book up and spending the rest of the day buried in Potter. Ahhh, what a lovely weekend. Hope everyone's elses was just as enjoyable!

I've heard Sanibel is beautiful. I also heard that all the trees were blown apart in the storms of '04 and '05.

Glad you had a good, relaxing, recuperating weekend.

Ahhh..the beach! I cannot wait to do the same next weekend!

Your husband looks like such an affable guy. Actually, you both look like people I'd like to party with!

Sounds like it was a great weekend. Reading is fun. I grew up going to Gulf beaches in Texas - and the water is NOT clear. And since I've never been to Florida's Gulf coast I'm a bit skeptical that the photo you took is even authentic.
