Just some things I didn't want to forget about.

Just some images I didn't want to forget, from today.  The landscaping around practically every building on the island is beautiful. The flowers are just gorgeous.
I have no idea what kind of sea bird this is but he walked just ahead of me for a good portion of the beach. He had yellow feet.
The inside of  what was left of one of the imperfect shells collected. Just beautiful.
This was HER creation and hers alone. And, she was thoroughly enjoying herself. I loved it.
I stopped to interview a young man of about 10 years of age who was in the process of building a castle but wanted me to see his completed turtle. Quite impressive. Once he realized I was perfectly serious about his construction he went into great detail and length to explain the sand building process.
We had dinner at CJ's by the Bay and I admit I was hungry but boy was the food good. Zeus had crab cakes with very little filler and a lot of crab and I had scallops that melted in my mouth.  Having skipped lunch I said I was up for dessert and I had the pineapple upside down cake with ice cream.
I proooooooooobly should be dead by now. It was to die for.
Normally, Zeus and I share a dessert. He decided he wanted the key lime pie. It was a really nice restaurant so I refrained from smacking my lips when I finished but I did hold up my knife and softly say, WHEEeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

:)Bea  who really looks forward to what tomorrow will bring.


  1. Wonderful photos. Looks like a great fun time for all.

  2. OMG does that dish look good! Great photos. Also loved the shell story. As usual--you keep paying it forward.

    Knowing you will have another great adventure today. Hi to Zeus.

    They are finally promising our first snow today.


  3. You have lived a warm dream...Marco Island is paradise here on earth. Your dinner is unbelievable...I love scallops too! I know this day is seared onto your heart. Such a peaceful post Bea! Thank you dear friend. Blessings, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
