Sanibel On R&R

Today was another day of rest and recuperation for me, which made me think about the entire island being on R&R. Several of the restaurants have closed for a week or so, for cleaning and time off for the employees, during the slowest time of the year for tourism. It's amazingly peaceful here right now.

You should consider being a good friend to yourself, by suggesting you need some time off to revitalize and recharge. For me, there was no better place than Sanibel Island to accomplish that. You can walk, ride a bike or just lay back on the sand, nearly all alone, to enjoy some quiet time.

It is still hot here during mid-day. The temperature reached 93 again today, for a while, but with some wind, it didn't seem all that bad. The low tonight is to be around 77 again. There were thunderstorms forecast for all last week and 40% chance for each day this week. Luckily there was sunshine most days last week until evening. Hopefully that will be the case again for those few people here on vacation.

Late afternoon, there was a LOT of thunder and some threatening clouds, but it all passed right on by. What we did get, was another beautiful rainbow! If you enlarge the photo, you will also see the friendly neighborhood osprey. :-)

I so desperately need the recharging energies of Sanibel right now. I'd like to say things can't get any worse, but we know that they always can. Slack a little extra for me...
