Jerry's on Sanibel

Good day and I thank you for stopping by.....today I want to share with you my favorite shopping complex on Sanibel Island.  Not for the stores, although they have several that are very interesting along with a grocery store that lets you drive under it to get your groceries.  Nope, it's for what is in the center of the complex.  A beautiful little oasis that is home to some gorgeous birds.

This is Jerry's on Sanibel or Jerry's on Periwinkle, oh my gosh, I am embarrassed but I can't remember the correct name.  It is the only Jerry's however.

Isn't it pretty?

I say that a lot, don't I?  "Isn't it pretty?" lol  I can't help it - pretty makes me happy!!

And the birds housed in the complex are P-R-E-T-T-Y!!!  lol  They make me happy too.

I can sit here for hours and be perfectly content....

Looking at the birds and listening to the water.....complete contentment......

I think this one has a little itch........but aren't they... oh no - here it comes again.... PRETTY!!  hahaha.....could not resist!!

  12. Roxanne..hello from Denver..
    as in the Mile High City of Denver Colorado!
    first.. welcome to the land of Blogging !
    at one time, we all were newbies..novices..
    almost without a clue..
    At first, I had friends who told me..
    you Really should have a blog..
    when I finally got up enough nerve..
    I bit the bullet! first trying to figure out a NAME!
    finally settled on the name Mountain Mermaid..
    because i'm from Florida,spent most of my life at the beach..
    on or in the water!..hence the Mermaid..because I love them!
    and Mountains..representing this beautiful state..
    together.. they define me..
    I'm crafty, have painted in the past until Arthritis caught me..
    needing an outlet for my creativity..Nikon entered into my life..
    rapidly became my new best friend..we never leave home without each other..
    secondly..I was encouraged by some of the best, most awesome bloggers around..they held my hand, gave me pep talks, introduced..me into their circles..always saying be sure to comment..
    that is my advice to you!
    comment! comment! comment!
    finally..you do not have to compare yourself to anyone..
    you have your reason for blogging..you'll find your niche!
    and like minded folks with similar interests will find and follow you!!
    Bloggers are the best. if you need help..just ask!
    we'll find the way and deliver the answer!
    welcome aboard!!
    warmest hugs..
    laughing smiles..

  13. Thanks for your words of encourage and advice. Oh, and I love mermaids too btw. They and fairies are my favorite mystical creatures. And I love pictures and Florida and shells and travelling (mostly to Florida if I have my way :) and looking at blogs!! Grateful for your kind words. Hope we become great friends!

  14. It's amazing what you can find in a mall! Great shots!

    1. Especially when that mall is an outdoor affair on the amazing Sanibel Island FL.

      Thanks Betty
