West Wind Inn & Sanibel Causeway Sunday

Late this evening (after a Grand Daughter's tennis lesson), we went to West Wind Inn on West Gulf Drive. While we were there dark clouds came past with pretty strong wind; but no thunder or lightning. That cooled the temperature down a lot. There were hardly any shells at all, in this area.

After leaving West Wind, we decided to make a causeway crossing to McDonald's. As we were leaving the island on our fast food adventure, the sky was filled with some of the lingering clouds. There wasn't any rain where we were, but you could see it coming down from some of the darker clouds.








Coming back on the Causeway, the sky was beautiful in any direction you looked.







This was today's sunset from one of the causeway islands. The sun went down behind the clouds so we couldn't actually see it.

That first picture is very dramatic -- I like those clouds above the path. You also got some great pictures as the sun was setting.

Hi Tootie, Your storm clouds looked 'mean'.... I saw on TV this morning pictures of a 'water spout' from the St. John's River near Jacksonville yesterday.

We had a front go through here last night--and it's finally COOLER this morning. Yeah-Rah... BUT--the rains went all around us.. We didn't get a drop! Darn!!!!

Love your sunset (pink sky) photos...
Hugs,
Betsy
