Sanibel's First Day of Spring

Some of you already know that I moved to Sanibel from the Indianapolis IN area, so you will understand why this story was of interest to me.  Several weeks ago Indianapolis friends sent a link to a story about a baby dolphin that was found here.  It was transported and cared for at Mote Marine Laboratory, Sarasota FL for a few weeks and then given to the Indianapolis zoo.  Because he was not releasable to the wild, the plan to have him become part of the Indianapolis Zoo's group of dolphins gives him the best chance to be a part of a dolphin family.

It's kind of neat that my little Great Grandson will get to go to the zoo and visit that little dolphin who came from Sanibel. :)



If you will be in the Indianapolis area or planning to visit, you may want to check out the zoo's website.  That is if you are interested in meeting the dolphins up close and personal.


We are still working on a project, so there's been no beach time.  But, there was time today, when we had to go off island for more supplies, to look at the wonderful view from the Sanibel Causeway.  The temperature actually got up to 84 today, but it didn't feel hot because of a strong, cool wind. 
 I think the first day of Spring brought some beautiful clouds back. :)

You sure have been busy lately. I hope your project finishes up soon so you can get back to enjoying the beach.
