FINALLY!!! A day at the beach

After being here almost 2 months, we finally got to spend our first day at the beach! Just thought I'd share some pictures from today and send along some sunshine to those of you who are craving it.
Always fun to see the natives.

Today we went to the beach at Boca Grande; this is the old lighthouse there.


We are along the Gulf Coast, south of Sarasota and north of Fort Myers, and the beaches have thousands of tiny shells like these, so it's really fun to walk and look for treasures.

This is Denny, fishing from shore......no bites today, but that didn't matter. We enjoyed the warmth, the sun and the beautiful water.

  12. Oh my Lin. We were at those beaches when we visited Florida - we were so amazed of the sea shells, too. We had to buy an extra suitcase to bring them home - lol
    Enjoy your holiday ( I am not at all envious - we have the most wonderful cold rainy wether her in Denmark)
