Naturally, you’ll love it here. ~The Islands of Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce

We’re kicking off the first day of spring on Sanibel Island, Florida! The four of us left St. Louis on Thursday afternoon and flew to Fort Meyers. We stayed a night there, picked up uncle Rob, aunt Alli and the cousins in a white cargo van, and headed to the Island yesterday afternoon. We got in some pool time, some beach time, a pizza dinner and DQ ice cream! If you haven’t tried DQ on an island, you really must.

We are getting settled in and not having any trouble adjusting to the view from our condo with the blue sky, warm air, sunshine and unpretentiousness of this place. Today we got bikes rented, pool, beach, pool and pretty soon we’re off to dinner.

Really? It’s this easy to leave winter and all of it behind? With a deep breath, we are so very grateful.
