About a dozen years ago we went to Florida for a family vacation at Sanibel Island. Despite being under the weather we had a great time. Beautiful beaches littered with beautiful shells and sands. Lots of locally owned businesses and shops. And pretty friendly people.
We were there over the 4th of July holiday and again the “small town” atmosphere was everywhere. Nature gives us some of the most beautiful sights imaginable. But Nature also can take them away in a blink of an eye.
I wish the people of Sanibel well and all areas affected in Florida by the hurricane.

Random Thoughts of the Day
- I had better get out tomorrow. Last day we might see the sun for a while.
- The more things change, the more they stay the same.
- Hearing my children’s voices can make my day.
- With chain saws and wood chippers running most of the day, I’m discovering a whole new level of tiredness.
