Autumn. . . Snow!!??

Today seems like a really, really, really good day to blog about my trip to Florida. Just a few short days after arriving home from Florida, it did this. . .
Really??? The leaves are still on the trees!!!
Makes me want to hop back on the plane and go to this. . .
The second annual meeting of the "Flip Flop Girls" convened in Naples, Florida. The weather was perfect. The water was refreshing and the food was delicious. We went to Sanibel and Captiva Island for lunch and a stroll on the beach.
We rode through the mangroves to get to the beach club. We saw alligators. . .

. . . and cool birds. . .
Little Blue Heron

Stork
We had good food, great conversations, and a lot of laughs. I believe on those glorious beach days we may have even solved all of the problems in the world. That's how magical this trip was for me.
Me, on the beach.
We combed the beaches for beautiful gifts from the sea. . .
I fell in love all over again with these little guys. . .
Sandpipers

Their little legs go a mile a minute, they crack me up!
And this tall, graceful one. . .
Snowy Egret
We saw amazing sunsets from the pier in downtown Naples.

We went to restaurants with delicious food. . .
That's me, third from the left.
There I am again! *smile*

We had a nice visit with Martha, the charming, funny step mom to my friend Lynn.
That's Lynn standing between me and Martha, on the left. It was a fun week with some amazing ladies that I am blessed to have as friends.
Lynn, Maureen, Denise (me), Marnie, Debbye and Joan
The Fabulous Flip Flops!


Thanks for stopping by. May you have many memorable, wonderful days in the sun...

I know how you feel. I just spent the weekend with a great group (we don't have a name!) who I've traveled with for 20 years. We sewed all weekend (in the snow in PA.) and had a fabulous time. Now we're home to pack to leave for Houston on Wednesday!!!
