Sanibel Island ...

     One of my favorite places on earth. While I was visiting Brittney in Ft. Myers, I spent as much time as possible on Sanibel/Captiva Islands. The beaches, the sunsets, the seashells, the birds and other wildlife ... there's just no place else quite like it.

     If ever you find yourself in South Florida, it is so worth the drive through the Everglades to visit Sanibel at least once. The entire island is a sanctuary and the delicate ecosystem is protected by the locals and visitors alike. This was the perfect place to break in my new camera.   

       

   

     These birds were the greeters ... they were the first thing I saw when I got to the island with the exception of "The Sign." Ha :)
