Sweatshirts at Sanibel

It was a chilly afternoon at the beach.  We went to resident access 5 on West Gulf Drive.  Cold wind met us as we walked out.  We didn't stay long and the tiny orange scallop is all I picked up.  Most of what we saw was broken.  Because the weather has gotten so cold, almost everyone is wearing sweat shirts here.  If it continues, I may have to break out a jacket.  I know, I'm a wus.  :(

Want To View Beautiful, Colorful Native

Vegetation In Field Conditions?The City of Sanibel Vegetation Committee is offering guided native plant tours of City Hall grounds, which have been planted solely with native plants. Due to the positive response earlier this year, the City of Sanibel Vegetation Committee is again offering guided native plant tours of City Hall grounds, which have been planted solely with native plants, on Wednesday, December 8, 2010

The City Hall wildflowers are showing their colors and are in full bloom. Come walk the grounds for ideas on planting native vegetation that requires no fertilizer. Come see how you can plant a garden that reseeds itself with very little maintenance, is good for the environment and will attract birds and butterflies.
Vegetation Committee members will provide information on proper planting and care of native vegetation. The City of Sanibel encourages planting of vegetation that is indigenous to the area as it requires very little maintenance, NO fertilizer, and NO supplemental irrigation.

The guided tour begins promptly at 10:00 a.m. Registration is not required. Attendees meet at the main entrance to City Hall, 800 Dunlop Road, in front of the main staircase. For additional information regarding the guided native vegetation tour, please contact the City's Natural Resources Department at (239) 472-3700.

It is still warmer there than here in Indiana. I would take a sweatshirt any day over 20 degree weather. BRRRRR. Enjoy the warm weather for both of us. :)

Wow!! Where is that beach erosion? That's a huge cut out of the beach. Interesting to see the layers of shells and sand opened up like that. But is that erosion all from the tide? Say hi to Gail!!

It was downright cold in Lakeland. We had frost all over the ground!

I totally love the little scallop! I always count it as a good beach trip when I find the miniature ones. I need to photograph mine and put them on the blog. Your hand looked really cold, by the way! :-)

I might have to break out a jacket too, we have a foot of Lake effect snow up here!

I love these darker, moody pictures.

Stay warm!
