A Sanibel Tuesday

Today we went to resident access 7 off of West Gulf Dr. It was pretty cool since it only got up to 65 degrees today but felt colder on the beach because it was windy.

I picked up three nice, small shells here. I just stopped to snap a picture and as I looked down, I spotted them. See if you can find them. :) I'll show them to you, at the end along with one other shell and a few jingles.

Tootie what are those beautiful purple flowers called? I remeber that they grew on vines all over Pointe Santo, and I would really like to name them in my Sanibel Scrapbook! Thanks, hoping for warmer weather for you guys!

Kim, I think most people call them Beach Morning Glories, but I've also heard them referred to as Railroad Vine. They are very pretty and a good dune stabilizer too. Bees, butterflies and birds all seem to like them. I've also seen pink and white ones here. They open early in the morning and close in the evening.
