Friday Father's Day Weekend

I didn't get to the beach today, but last night I happened to notice a bright pink sky as I looked out the window. I went out to take a few pictures for my friends who's vacation is over and have returned home. I know how much they enjoyed seeing the sunsets each evening and even though this is only a peek, the pink clouds will bring a smile to their face. :)

This evening we had another thunderstorm pass over the island, bringing some cool wind and a little rain. Our temperature is going to stay in the mid 70's tonight. Tomorrow, the heat is on again. As far as water conditions are concerned, all is still well here!!! :)

Florida's Governor announced that residents and visitors may enjoy a weekend of fishing without a license, in honor of Father’s Day on June 19th and June 20th, 2010. Florida Fish and Wildlife's plan is to help bring families together to enjoy the outdoors and lend a hand to Florida’s fishing communities, which have been suffering due to mistaken perceptions that fishing is not open because of the BP oil spill. The water around Sanibel and Captiva is clear and waiting for you. From what I hear; fishing is good! During the past few weeks, a couple of my friends were catching Pompano, Tarpon, Trout, Mackeral and Snook from the beaches. The fish are out there, with their mouths open, just waiting for your bait. :)

Some changes are being made as of July 1, 2010; Florida residents will qualify for a no-cost shoreline fishing license. The shoreline fishing license is available to Florida residents only. Nonresident saltwater anglers must purchase a regular nonresident saltwater fishing license at $17 for three days, $30 for seven days or $47 for one year, regardless of whether they fish from shore or a vessel.

Thanks for the update on the fishing license. I thought everybody was going to have to pay for the shoreline fishing license.

LOVE the sunset photos...we do get some pretty skies here in the Sunshine State, and that's coming from a girl who was born and raised in Montana, AKA Big Sky Country! : )
