A New Adventure Begins!

You can’t reach for anything new if your hands are still full of yesterday’s junk  ~Louise  Smith

We arrived today at our wonderful place in Ft. Myers! I have to say, when we 'come home' here, we both feel very much like this is truly home. We still have some things we want to do around here, a few updates and a few more pictures to hang, but it is definitely Home for us, and we can't wait for the day to make it permanent! We got here, quickly unloaded, unpacked and I ran out and picked up a few 'staples' at the grocery store. Then I headed out to Lighthouse beach at Sanibel for a little bit of beach therapy.

I knew the shelling wasn't going to be great because it was High Tide, but I needed to walk along the warm Gulf Beach and just breathe!!
The causeway islands

As promised, there were lots of things to see at Lighthouse beach...

A great Egret fishing, and catching all kinds of minnows

 I believe this is a mangrove bud....
 These little slimy guys were all over the place, I must have thrown dozens back into the water...I think they are sea squirts?? Not really sure, but hopefully I saved a few!
 Sea Pork
There were lots of shells.....I found a couple of key hole limpets, and some tiny scallops, but nothing extraordinary, but like I said, I was there mostly for the therapy! :)
I found this to be particularly interesting.....I was at 0 mile, the beginning of a new adventure in paradise!! 
So come along with us and I hope you enjoy this week's adventures and photos!

....and beautiful sunsets!!!

Stay tuned!
