Jess didn't want to leave until she found out if Brad made it home okay so I snuck out alone after dinner to the lighthouse for some mini shelling!
The tide was very high, so I didn't expect much!
There were lots of shells, but just plain white small shells...nothing spectacular!
I did pick up a baby's ear and a shark's eye and one tiny wentletrap....(I will post pictures in my next post.)
There were boats and jet skis everywhere, you can certainly tell it is a holiday weekend! There were several dolphin just off of the fishing pier that were frolicking and playing in the rough water from all the activity, and I did get a pic...
I stayed at Lighthouse point until just about dark, and headed back.
We got up and headed out first thing this morning in order to get a front row seat for the Sanibel 4th of July parade...
We saw or buddies, king's crowns by the bunches.... :)
I circled the ones I could remember....and probably missed some! We are pleased that there are so many of these beauties!
We saw some more awesome live shells...a LIVE shark's eye...
Although the shelling wasn't great, we saw some awesome colors and another beautiful sunset!
We plopped down on the sandbar and waited for it to get dark to see if we could catch both Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beach fireworks....Jess made her first "sandcastle" in years! :)
Our idea was great we got to see fireworks at both places, and a few others!! It was great!! Sanibel had great fireworks, ...
and as soon as their grand finale was over Fort Myers Beach began their display....every where we looked was fireworks! It was a blast....pardon the pun!
