Spring Break-Sanibel Island

Where have I been? I can't believe that 6 weeks have gone by since I last updated my blog. Way too busy with work and home to keep up. I have missed visiting all my favorite blogs.
Back in April we took Shelby to Sanibel/Captiva Island, Florida during her Spring Break. We had a terrific time.
This little ham of mine just loves the beach. We got up early everyday to look for sea shells. Sanibel is known for its shelling. The best time is in the winter. Here are just a few of our finds.
We went to the sea shell museum and learned all about mollusks. It is amazing that all of these shells were made by these tiny creatures.
We boogey boarded, even in the mini surf of the Gulf. The water was really warm. Tough on the feet for all the shells on the beach. Nothing like a 5 year old to keep you moving!
Sanibel was really relaxing and much needed with us always going in different directions. The island was laid back with everyone getting around by bicycle. If you are looking for a beach local in Florida, go check it out.
In spite of all the work travel I have been doing, the needle felting project got finished a few days before Easter. I will be back soon with all the "chicks".
