Photoblog: Sanibel Island, FL

To celebrate the start of summer, here’s some photos I took on a trip to Sanibel and Captiva Island, Florida earlier this ¬†month. Sanibel is a great shelling beach, just off the coast of Ft Myers, FL — one of the best shelling beaches in the world. Lots of great wildlife on the island.

To say Sanibel is a “shelling beach” might be an understatement….shells for days and days.

A few of the gems found on the beach.

Such pretty palm trees — you could tell whether a storm was coming by looking at the trees.

Houses and flowers on Captiva Island.

Always a sunny time in South Florida…

Fighting Conches, the state shell of Florida

These little guys were so friendly and chatty, I had to scoop¬†them up…

Nothing on the island is allowed over three stories, giving it a serene landscape.

A rainbow on the beach is lucky, right?

So beautiful, so blessed every time.

 

Happy summer wishes!
