Day One

I had been assured that I would have internet service at our resort for our two weeks...and that is true if I sit in the lobby of the resort or ...

if I sit out here on our lanai. The lanai,as you can see from the previous post, faces the Gulf. We have a fantastic view of the beach and beyond. The tide is coming in as I type and the sounds....ah, the sounds of the surf upon the shore..there is no better seditive known to mankind. We've had storms pass us by all afternoon and no rain. The black clouds sit like an umbrella just off shore and the change in the weather has cood us and brought lovely tropical breezes. Believe me, having to go out to the lanai to post is not a hardship at all.

E and I fulfilled our two traditions upon our arrival at the beach: our trek to the Cottage and our private celebration of our relationship. This is our 11th. year hear at Estero Island Beach Club together and my 20th year of uninterrupted summer stays. I bought 3 wks. in 1986, getting one week for 800.00 as my step papa, Joe, bid on a foreclosure on the court house steps for me . Now each of my children own a week as do most of our friends...

We are blessed!

Now that you've fulfilled your two traditions (wink, wink), I wish I could come join you! The idea of a tropical breeze, water to wash over my toes (the kind that laps the beach, not streams from a showerhead), and the sound of surf are sounding too delicious. What am I doing landlocked here in the middle of the country in 103 degrees when I could be with you? Huh? Huh? LOL. Have a ball!!!!!
