We just got back from a lovely week on vacation at Sanibel Island, Florida. This was our view from the condo. I spent a lot of time sitting right here enjoying the ocean breeze.
A view across the courtyard.
A look at the pool.
There were so many flowers and lush plants everywhere. I have no idea what this plant is, but I fell in love with those beautiful pink leaves.
Hibiscus were everywhere. Beautiful blooms.
I love to catch the scent of gardenia on a breeze.
This charming guy (and several other feathered friends) would talk to you from right outside the grocery store we went to at one of the shopping centers.
This was one of our favorite restaurants -- we enjoyed it twice during our stay.
Loved the Florida palms painted on their entry porch.
Our traveling companions were my husbands sister and Brother in law. We all had a wonderful, relaxing week.
Mr. Mid-Atlantic and I really enjoyed our stay. We're already talking about making plans to return next year.
One of our favorite spots of Sanibel real estate.
Sailboats at sunset.
The bridge to the island.
A walk on the beach our last morning at Sanibel. I hate to even think about the oil spill reaching these beautiful beaches.
All packed up and leaving the island to head back home.
While I was gone, I missed Sheila's party!
But even though I'm late -- I still had to snap a shot from the condo.
Well, it's back to work and reality tomorrow -- hope you enjoyed coming along.
