Another Happy Day On Sanibel

Monday started off with some rain, then sunshine and a 70 degree day. We had to make a trip across the causeway just after noon. I was surprised to see a minimal amount of traffic. There weren't many boaters or fishermen either. Folks must be resting after a busy weekend, or something. While overseas, we stopped to have a late lunch at Big Al's City Sports Grill, a place we hadn't tried yet. The service was very good and so was the food. We will be going back. :)

Later this evening we went to Resident Access 5, off West Gulf Drive. The waves had brought in quite a bit of sand since I was there yesterday. I couldn't see many shells coming in, but there were still some left at the high tide line.

Gaillardia or Indian Blanket

The menu at Big Al's looks pretty good. We don't usually go off island once we get there. Nice rollers working off the beach. I have heard there is sand building up right now. Hope you are enjoying some warmer temps. I'm currently looking at airline tickets for Oct.

Your beach pictures and video are wonderful as always. And your flowers just beautiful.

I think the orange flower is called an "Indian blanket" - ???? Used to grow them from seed back on Long Island. They will grown just about anywhere, under any conditions, and volunteer the following year too! There were a boatload of 'em growing on a corner last year - I think maybe it was Periwinkle and Donax. Great colors!

I think the color is more like a burgandy and gold and I think it's what SCCF calls Gaillardia. I Googled it and,'s also called Indian Blanket. You win the prize, I just haven't decided what it will be yet. :)

The yellow one is a Beach Sunflower.
