Home Headquarters Fort Myers Beginning July 20th!

Regret for wasted time is more wasted time. ~Mason Cooley

We packed up the car with 2 tables I had been refinishing, (Mom and Dad’s old dining room table and a shadowbox table my Mom bought us for a house warming gift). Shadow boxes, Canvas pictures, My seahorse, curtains, new comforters and various other items, including Lily to take down to our house in Ft. Myers.  The 2 day trip was pretty uneventful which always is a good thing!!
After unloading the car, we decided to try the Sanibel Fish House’s other Fish house on Ft. Myer’s Beach.  We crossed that amazing teal bridge that you see from Sanibel onto Ft. Myers Beach….talk about a Beachy place!! It is very much a resort, not at all like Sanibel, we felt like we had gone to Key West!! There was all kinds of activity and lots of traffic! We went all the way down the island , almost to Lover’s Key, but didn’t find the restaurant!! So , since traffic was so backed up, we parked and walked out to the beach.  We could see Sanibel way off in the distance, it was hard to see much but trees.  Hubby immediately found a sand dollar that was not alive, and we found some minis.  We also found 2 awesome king’s crowns that were alive.  Of course I didn’t take a camera since we were just going to dinner, so you will have to settle for pics taken with my non smartphone, and hubby took a couple with his blackberry!  We only stayed for a little o ver 30 minutes then headed back in to the traffic and decided to stop at Publix and pick up some chicken for dinner and eat at home! (Doesn't that have a nice ring to it?? :D
Driving on the Aqua Bridge to Fort Myers Beach..You can actually see this bridge from Sanibel!!

Cool looking Florida House!

After we got home and had dinner, we realized we missed a really low tide out at Sanibel…Geez!! I guess we will have to spend the next couple of evenings there, because low tide will be after dark by Tuesday I think!! So much to do, so little time!! J  We actually don’t have internet here until Monday, so this is being typed in Word and I will put it online after we get internet installed, (or I will cheat and use hubby’s broadband card for a minute or two to post!)

Just a short update! I will keep you up to date as best I can!!
