Another garage sale on Sanibel! Our long time neighbor of Ocean’s Reach and resident of Southwinds Drive pulled off a massive house cleaning this past Saturday. Our guests told me there was a traffic jam and many cars parked on Algiers Drive. Many guests went home with some small island antiques and trinkets. Today’s picture was taken Sunday afternoon after the rush was long gone.
We will miss Phil who sold his home in one day and will pick up shop to go traveling around the world.
Bon Voyage Phil!
On my bike ride late Saturday afternoon I rode through the Ding Darling Preserve to see if any of our winter residents have arrived. The first White Pelican of the season for me was seen along with a Wood Stork and Roseate Spoonbills. I also stopped to take a picture of the Bald Eagles in their nest on SanCap Road.
Today’s sunshine is waning! Could it be time for some different fun and maybe a cocktail or two? If the light looks right in this beautiful photo taken in front of Ocean’s Reach on Sanibel, then how about we head on over to the Sanibel Grill for one of their tasty Crunchy Grouper Sandwiches and a little bit of fun.
The “Sanibel Grill” is a favorite Sanibel restaurant for watching Big 10 football on their 16 big screen TV’s with Direct TV Satellites, NTN Interactive Trivia is always available at the bar and food to die for!!
So is it time to go yet?
The WOW basket from Cheese Nook greeted honeymooners in our honeymoon suite. Sea shells and flowers decorated the master bedroom, and gift certificates from island favorites, Timbers, Jacaranda and Lazy Flamingo graced the dining room table along with monogrammed wine glasses. Here’s a toast to the bride and groom!
Sanibel weddings are always special and Ocean’s Reach was excited to take part in a very special ceremony this week. Amy and J.T. Britton renewed their wedding vows yesterday on our beach. We caught them practicing before they proceeded to the beach along with a pastor, witness and photographer. Congratulations Amy and J.T. after 16 wonderful, married years together.
