Last night it was a chilly 43 degrees, but today was sunny and warm, with the temperature getting up to 66 degrees. With only a slight breeze from the south, it felt warmer on the beach. The water temperature is 59 degrees.
On the way over to the beach, early this afternoon, we made a stop at Pointe Santo de Sanibel. It looked as though everyone was having a great time on the beach and there were even kids swimming in the pool.
From there, we went to resident access 6 off West Gulf Drive. There were a few shells at the high tide line, but hardly any coming in. The sun felt very warm and was just what I needed. I went dressed in warm clothes, thinking the wind would be a little chilly on the beach. After only a few minutes, I was wishing I hadn't done that. :) Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to be in the low 70's. PERFECT!
The first thing I noticed was a big glob washing back and forth in the surf. Looking a little closer I could see that it was a jelly fish. When it was spread out, it was around 2 ft wide. That's the biggest one I've seen on the beach. There were actually two of them about the same size. After a while, they finally worked their way back out into the water and disappeared.
