Today, we were learning to kick back and relax....that sounds funny doesn't it? it's not something that you do automatically... if you are as busy as we have been lately! I popped up early as usual, then forced myself to just sit down and relax!! I sat out on the deck and just stared at the Gulf of Mexico...this is the view!!
After just taking in the view, we put on real clothes and mosied to Jerry's Supermarket! They have a little diner in there that serves great breakfast. I had my usual... a morning BLT (which means it comes with hash browns (the REAL shredded kind)) and Hubby had his usual 'Cakes and Eggs' (of course that's pancakes, eggs any style and bacon! We then stocked up on their pastries for breakfast tomorrow, and bleach to cleanup shells. Headed back to our new abode and I finished up the shells....the shelling was pretty good, we got some goodies here!

|Jewel box...both sides!! Cockle too!!|
I found out today that our little Lily (8 month old chihuahua puppy) is doing fine at the vet's and they promise that she will be spoiled rotten when we get home....she is very shy around strangers and I have been worried about her! It sounds like she will be less shy when we return!
Here are some pics I took this evening of some of the live shells, you cannot take live shells on Sanibel, and sometimes they are plentiful, which means they will continue to multiply! Here are some we got pictures of, I spent more time taking videos and pics then shelling tonight....but once again, I'm learning to relax and enjoy!!
