The last Mantooth? Last but not least? Has anyone seen Mom?
Last but not least, this is my daughter Savannah. She is a true beach babe at heart. (like her mom) This is her and Dad just as the sun came up, she is still in her pj’s. These were the best mornings, to wake up and go shelling and see the dolphins jumping! Truly breath taking! It is places like Ocean’s Reach on Sanibel, where families come together and share joy and laughter! I just wish all kids could experience what my kids have experienced, and realize that life is short and these are the memories that will last in their minds forever. Sanibel also inspired my daughters infamous “beach room” ! I would vote Sanibel/Oceans Reach the best place for families!
Meet another Mantooth!
This picture is of our other son. He was amazed with all the crabs he found! In our 6 years of going to beaches all over Florida, this was actually the first time we saw so much sea life! My son has never found sand crabs! It is little things, that we sometimes take for granted. The small, free things mean the most, and stay in our memories for a lifetime!
I have several favorite Oceans Reach photo’s. This is one of my favorites, my son who has severe eczema hates the water, Sanibel has been the only Ocean in the last 6 years, where he actually got in the water and loved every minute of it! Vacations have been miserable up until now, I always sat on shore with him and he would never get into the water. He feared the burning, and hates the stares he gets when his legs are flared up. It was AWESOME!!! He played in the water every single day. When we talk vacation, he is always willing to give up Disney for Sanibel. He hated the beach, before Sanibel! This is the happiest, I’ve ever seen him on vacation!
This is a picture of my husband, He is not a beach kind of guy!Â I love the ocean, and if it were up to me I would live on a Beach.Â I always say that if I ever win the lottery, bye-bye, I’m moving to Sanibel!Â It is heaven on earth.Â My husband was so taken by all of the sea life.Â It is amazing, how you feel to actually look at the sea life close up.Â My husband has only experienced sea life on TV, so this was amazing to actually find this many starfish below your feet in a 10 minute time period.Â If only they would have been dead, and we could have kept them.Â But, we have the pictures to show.Â This picture has actually inspired a friend of ours who is a surgeon, to bring his family for a visit in August.Â When they saw this picture they were in disbelief.Â Now my husband insists, the only beach he will ever go to is Sanibel!
Be sure and check back to meet the rest of the Mantooth family!
