Mom's Birthday Surprise

Great weekend!  My dad, sister & I surprised my mom with 2 nights on Sanibel. Since we live in Ft.Myers she is always over there anyways- her main shelling beach is Algiers/Gulf Side beach. But it was fun to go somewhere new!

We booked her at Shalimar which is on West Gulf Drive. We spent the day with her yesterday and really enjoyed it.

When the tide started going out we were treated to more live olive shells than I've ever seen! My video skills are hurting but here's what I captured.

This was next door- how cute is that?!

I feel so fortunate to live in such a great part of this country- SW Florida has so much to do!
Have a great week- wherever you are!


  1. You are lucky indeed!!!! I tried to click on your video...but it wouldn't play!?!?!? I'm sure it was lovely!! Have a happy, beachy July day!

  2. I hope to get there one day myself. Hope you had a great time.

  3. Wish your mom a big Happy Birthday! I feel the same way - SWFL is the best.

  4. Thanks!
    I think I've fixed the video- let me know if you can see it now!

  5. Love the photo of your dad fishing :)
