Grand children and friend, celebrating Amanda's 16th birthday, on the last night of their vacation.
The Grand children's Spring Breaks are over and they have gone, leaving behind two weeks worth of memories. We had a wonderful time with them, some of it spent at Disney World and the rest here at Sanibel. The weather was perfect while they were here and they had lots of beach time along with many other activities. Now the house seems quiet and empty, as usual, after they leave.
Now I need to stay busy for a while, so it's back to blogging. :)
Today we went off-island for a while. It was very evident that things are getting back to normal here. There was much less traffic and the causeway islands were not crowded at all. It was cloudy when we left the island, but it wasn't raining. As soon as we reached the other side of the causeway, we drove in a light rain for a while.
Late this afternoon, we went to West Gulf Drive and parked at resident beach access 6. There weren't many people on the beach, which was another good sign that 'season' is about over. The sun felt very warm and the wind was cool, making a perfect combination.
There weren't a lot of shells on the beach, mostly small broken pieces. I could see more shells a little way out in the water. But, after seeing a good size shark cruise by, about 10 feet away from the water's edge, I didn't venture out to look.
I'm thinking that it's nearly that time of year when we have beautiful clouds to look at again. :)
