New Visitor at Sanibel


The redecorating at our house is still ongoing.  Ugh, seems like we move slower and slower.  We'll be happy to get to the end of it so we can get back to spending more time at the beach.

We have spent quite a bit of time running back and forth to Home Depot and Lowe's.  Of course that means driving the Sanibel Causeway and looking at the wonderful view.




Puffin is getting used to the shopping trips and starts jumping around as soon as we pull into the parking lot.  He can't wait to get in a cart and wait for someone to give him attention.


Tuesday evening we treated ourselves to a yummy Pina Colada at the Sanibel Grill, the best I've had on the island.


Bailey's landscaping is growing and looking great!


Now I want to show you our new island visitor.....
It's Ms Rosalita.


We took her over to West Gulf Drive and resident access 5 to show her the beach.  She was so excited, we could hardly keep up.


We spotted a couple of friends on the beach and took Rosalita to meet them.


We were talking and when I looked around, Rosalita had helped herself to a Corona and was laying down sunning herself.


The weather has been very warm and breezy lately.  It's just perfect for spending time on the beach.  The water has warmed up a lot already too.







I didn't see many shells of interest, but Ms Rosalita had a great time doing the Sanibel Stoop.

Aren't her little flip flops just adorable?

 

When we walked back out to the parking area, we noticed one vehicle without a resident parking sticker had a parking ticket.  They check these very frequently through the day and it's really not worth taking a chance.

I think it's safe to say, Rosalita enjoyed her day.

How do Puffin and Rosalita get on Tootie? Any jealousy? - Dave

Puffin is just too cute, but Rosalita, well she's divine. Perfect new Sanibel resident! Oh how I miss those sands and the "stoop".

Rosalita is a cutie! Yeah, don't take the chance and park without a permit. We learned the hard way the first time we visited Sanibel.

Hope your home improvement project is going well. Will you show us pictures when it's complete?

Rosalita and me are of like mind when it comes to the beach; a beach chair and a Corona. Although I generally like an umbrella. I find it easier to snooze in the shade.

I would enjoy some time at the beach myself. I'll bet Puffin gets lots of attention when you go shopping.

That Rosalita has a wild streak! I work for the blue big box and we love it when the puppies come in.

I'll look for Ms. Rosalita in May when I'll be enjoying the salty Gulf waters! Have a Joyous Spring; Puffin too! Brianne
