We're back from Sanibel Island. Back from the sand, the sun, and the warmth. Reality set in as soon as I saw the snow, and felt the blast of cold air. The distinct feeling of sadness washed over me as we traveled farther and farther north...away from the island paradise I love so much.
I always bring back plenty of shells to scatter on our beach for the grandkids to find when they stay here in the summer-time.
I found a few nice things for summer while shopping on the island with my sister.
I found the mermaid signs at Posh...as well as the cute white, ruffled top in a previous picture. If you are ever in Venice, you HAVE to visit Posh!! it's amazing!!
It might not be Sanibel Island, but Summer here at our cottage is the next best thing.
The grandkids finding seashells on the beach, playing in the water, and enjoying the sunshine is a joy like no other.
As I wait, I will remember the warmth of the southern beaches, as I surround myself with all the treasures from the sea.
Have a happy day.
