Tuesday Sanibel Island

This is a water fountain I saw along the walking trail the top spout for adults shorter one for kids and the bottom one for dogs, but I think most folks here drink Perrier.

Some of the leaves and the coconuts on this palm were burned by the recent freezes here.

A large Jellyfish which washed up on the beach.
It was cloudy warm and windy early this morning it has gotten cooler very windy this evening.
About 9 AM the marina moved us to another slip, we were surprised to see the boat next to us, a large Hatteras, is from Baton Rouge, LA. We had a nice chat with the young couple who are staying on it for the week, it belongs to her father, they leave it here most of the time and fly over when they want to use it.
There is another Monk 36 like ours in the Marina, the owner is from the UK they come over for the winter and stay on it. They will probably leave for the Keys on Saturday also but will stop for a couple of days to visit friends in Goodland, near Marco Island South of here.
After lunch one of the previous owners of my boat, a Canadian couple who spend the winter nearby came over to have a chat and look at their old boat I was glad to meet them and get information on some of the work they had done on her they were the second owners we are the fourth.
It is windy tonight and the boats in the marina are rocking. Looks like it will be Saturday before things calm down and we can move on. The forecast calls for 9 to 11 foot seas tomorrow!
