I thought I would share a few more pictures from my time on Sanibel Island and my stay at Oceans Reach.  I am not a photographer by any stretch of the imagination.  However I do think these shots are pretty.
Oh...to be back there would be heaven.....*wistful sigh*...........isn't it just lovely?  My heart and soul yearns to be there.....LOL.......sounds like I'm writing a romance novel!!  I am hopelessly captivated by the island and shelling.....ohh...the shelling there....that will be another post.


  1. A woman after my own heart! I have been meaning to get to Sanibel for years. This is the year i promised myself I am going. This coming Sunday,I leave for my vacation home in Florida which is only about an hour north of Sanibel. And I will drive to Sanibel. I will pic a seashell just for you and throw in the ocean with a wish for you to go back soon! that part of the world by the Gulf holds a special place in my heart, so I know how you are feeling. It draws you back.

  2. You are so very lucky to have a vacation home in SW FL. You absolutely must make the drive over! There are several public beaches including the one at the lighthouse. I think it costs $2.00 an hour to park. But you can use the same parking ticket for each beach (which I didn't realize until the last day).

    Check out this blog from a lady who lives on Sanibel. http://www.iloveshelling.com/blog/ Her last few posts are about the Shell Show (75th year) but she has lots of great pictures of the beaches and shells in her archives.

    Please let me know if you make it!

    great meeting you and hope to stay in touch!!

  3. Me too! I'd love to visit. Have been in FL quite a few times but never that far south. One day I will!! And do some shelling myself!

  4. I hv heard the shelling is amazing.. how fun.. it looks just amazing!

    1. The shelling is like no where else on the planet!!
