Another hot, sunny day on our beach! According to the weather forecast, it is going to remain in the 90’s and partly cloudy through the weekend. Sounds like perfect weather for a day at Ocean’s Reach beach.
Andy with his good friend, Glen Glenn, who was a good friend of Elvis and is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Priscilla impersonator.
Elvis passing out scarves in the middle of his performance. His real name is Bill Cherry who is the winner of the ultimate Elvis contest. He represents Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis. He is the “official” Elvis impersonator.
Andy and Cynthia Pepper! Cynthia Pepper co-starred with Elvis in “Kissin’ Cousins” and for those of you who remember “Margie” in the early 60’s–one of Charlie’s favorite shows–this is she! Andy really looks like he is having fun enjoying the “15th Annual Elvis Honeymoon Weekend” in Palm Springs.
Andy has recently spent some time visiting in Palm Springs, CA and although the next few days we will be sharing some of his “Day Trips” they will not be on Sundays and they will definitely be too far to take from Sanibel, so just sit back and enjoy a few of his special excursions far from home.
Andy is pictured here hiking on the Ramon Road trail behind Palm Springs, CA, which is is part of the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Take notice of his shirt!
The 73rd Annual Sanibel Shell Show was held March 4, 5 and 6, 2010 at the Sanibel Community Center in Sanibel, Florida.
The Sanibel Shell Show is a juried show, both in scientific exhibits following categories, as well as the largest display of shell art anywhere, which is also judged.
As you can see from the preceding pictures it was a huge success!
There is no need to worry about business or things at home while enjoying Ocean’s Reach accommodations on Sanibel. It is simple to receive faxes, email, boarding passes, mail and package shipments conveniently in our guest Welcome Center. Today is a busy day checking emails and surfing the internet, but there is always time to help our guests!
Cleaning shells and discovering their beauty is “fun” according to these two shellers and guests of Ocean’s Reach. (Even more fun since they are missing 5″ of snow from their home state of Vermont).
Thanks to the new additions at the Ocean’s Reach Shelling Station, this young man was able to identify the shell he was lucky enough to find. The Shelling Station is the perfect place to go and identify all of the local varieties of shells and the many varieties of butterflies that are also abundant in the area.
