It's still all about Lily...and the birds!!

The man who doesn't relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on.  ~Elbert Hubbard

We decided to sleep in a little past sun-up again this morning, so missed the low tide that was at 5 something this morning....oh well, another day of relaxation!! Sounds tough doesn't it?  We got up and had an early breakfast at Jerry's and picked up a few snacks and headed to the beach for the day.  The gulf was as calm as a was wonderful!! We did just walk along the high tide line and pick up a few little pretties....nothing spectacular, just a leisurely stroll....I couldn't believe how far Lily walked, she was so excited to pick up sticks, and then bring them back to the umbrella to chew on them!  What fun we had!! She enjoyed watching all the birds also!!

I believe this is a Ruddy Turnstone

This is a sandpiper
Snowy Egret

 We came in early evening and made dinner from leftovers brought in all week, and went back out to catch another beautiful sunset on the gulf!

Like I said before, we plan on going out for the -.6 tide in the morning at sunrise, hopefully I'll have some neat shell pics for you!! If not, it's just another day in paradise!! :)

I took another video, the end of another perfect day in paradise....I hear it's raining and nearly 30 at home, so close the curtains, turn up the speakers and enjoy some paradise of your own for a few seconds!!




  1. Wonderful pictures - love the colors.

  2. Gorgeous photos. I especially love the first sunset picture with the snowy egret in the right hand corner. I always say I am getting up at 5:00 or earlier to do some shelling and I never make it! Lol.

  3. Love love love the Gulf Coast sunsets! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love those Sanibel sunsets! I love to just sit there and just absorb the last of the sun rays on my face, take a deep breath of fresh beach air and watch all those beautiful sunset colors glow in the ski!! Now thays paradise!!!

    Thanx for the reminder Cheri!!
