Over the last several days I have been watching our Osprey nest at Ocean’s Reach for any sign indicating the return of our nesting Osprey. Last week I saw Ospreys sitting in and around nests just off Island and around the Dunes Country Club.
This morning, October 13th, was the first sighting of our Osprey. May we have another successful breeding year.

Meet wildlife watchers, Sophie and Caitlin Dimbleby, from the UK. They and their parents arrived at Ocean’s Reach for a week with nature, wildlife and beach after visiting Disney World in Orlando. Immediately they captured our hearts as Sophie (left) and Caitlin (right) visited us almost daily to update us on their wildlife adventures on Sanibel. Their favorite activity was swimming near the dolphins right off our beach. They promised to send us photos and videos of their iguana, dolphin, crab and flat fish sightings. We look forward to staying in touch with them!!
Back in Kingston, UK, they are looking forward to taking care of their new puppy who will share the home with fish and gerbils.
Ocean’s Reach Guest Services accepts food baskets, floral arrangements, gift baskets and UPS shipments for all our guests. This morning, however, the delivery from Bailey’s Neighborhood Grocery of healthy fresh fruits, cheeses, crackers and chocolates was for Guest Services!! It was a “Thank You” from an appreciative new owner.
For anyone wanting to send a welcome gift or special treat to friends or family staying at Ocean’s Reach, a gift basket from Bailey’s Grocery is an ideal way to send a special sentiment with a smile.

Seeing Melissa and Darren’s wedding photos on the September 1st blog post, brought back a lot of beautiful memories. Approximately 30 guests (including their pastor) arrived to celebrate this beautiful occasion on the beach. The bride and groom were so relaxed even when a rain storm soaked the island most of the day. But guess what? At 5:00 p.m. the sky opened up to a beautiful, warm sunny evening–just in time to set up the boardwalk to the beach for the processional.
Andy has shared a few of his photos from this special day, including one from the lovely reception held afterward in the Grove.
We will be glad to help you plan your perfect Sanibel wedding on the beach at Ocean’s Reach!
