A few days in paradise, Sanibel Island, Florida

My family and I are spending our summer vacation in our favorite place in Florida, Sanibel Island.  I am looking forward to some needed R and R time with the family.  Crossing the bridge to the island feels like going through a stress cleansing  that leaves all your troubles behind in the main land (Worth the $6 toll).
I am looking forward to a few days of biking, hiking, shelling, nature photographic, (I’m using my new Nikon 18-300mm lens) bird watching, kayaking and beach time.  I also brought three books to read (If I have any time)

Box Turtle on the beach (did you know that this little guy can live to 100 years)
