OMG - look where we've landed!!

Well we really scored - we're in paradise on Sanibel Island in a gorgeous 2500-foot home, most of which is all ours. The lovely owner, Candace, has a wing of her own, and we hardly see her, and her adorable golden doodle, Darla, keeps us company on the couch whenever we invite her.

Sanibel is truly our kind of place - no high-rise hotels, totally nature-oriented, with an almost empty white sand beach, about a mile from the house. The house itself is on a little lake called Lake Murex (with alligators!), and we have bikes that take us just about anywhere on this 12-mile long island, on paved bike paths. Honestly, we feel like we've landed in heaven - we just booked to stay two extra days, until next Sunday.

On the agenda for this week is mostly relaxing, but we'll probably visit Captiva Island, maybe on a "dolphin cruise", and definitely spend a day at the Ding Darling Conservation area to see local flora and fauna. Here is a sample of my pics …
