Mellow Monday

Today the weather was wonderful! The sun was shining and the wind was blowing some cooler air. The skies were a bright blue with just a few white clouds scattered around.

My cousin was here this month, staying at her place in Bonita Springs, which is just south of Ft Myers. We made plans to meet for lunch today to catch up on family news.

We had a late lunch at the Sunflower Cafe, #370 Summerlin Square Drive, Ft Myers Beach. Their menu offered a nice variety of foods. Our lunch was VERY good. We both had grouper, fries, mixed vegetables and tossed salad. There were two really large pieces of grouper and we both had to take one of those home with us. Our meal also came with a desert, picked from 3 choices. She had a rice pudding and I had strawberry jello with whipped cream on top. :-) A much bigger meal than I normally eat and it was around $13. Our waitress was excellent. They are open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I had heard the food is good there, but hadn't tried it before. I will go back again.

After a little shopping, I came back to the island. As I came over the causeway, I noticed several kites in the air, over by the lighthouse. I drove over there to take a quick video to share with you here. It seemed everyone over on that beach was having a great time. There were several people sitting on a blanket having a picnic and others out swimming. There were 8 or 10 people out on the choppy water kite surfing. I think the wind was giving them a fun ride today.

Hi, Tootie! We saw these folks out flying kites and kite surfing for 4 days in a row while we were there. They all seemed to have a grand time. The last night we were there (Fri) when we went out to Lighthouse Beach there was NO wind blowing. The noseeums were terrible!! And the shelling was not great either. (I personally think we picked the beach dry of shells!!) We even left before our parking time ran out!! But on the UP side....the boxes of shells we shipped home arrived today!!! Yippee!! We are happy again, but wishin' we were there!!

I've only eaten at the Sunflower once but really enjoyed it. As my hubby says, So many restaurants--so little time.
