Happy Mother's Day - Saturday

I hope you all are able to be with your mommas this Mother's day and if not that you think of her often today. Never having been a mom, it looks like an awesome but tiring job.

My mom and I are in Sanibel Island this weekend. We drove up yesterday, had seafood for lunch near the lighthouse, saw the lighthouse, checked in our beachfront room, went shelling, napped under the umbrella, went to dinner at a seafood restaurant, and sat on the screened lanai listening to the gulf breeze before retiring for the night.

There's a huge birdnest...thinking Osprey.
Arrived at our room with mini kitchen and all the needed amenities - the Seaside Inn

Mom is sleeping in this morning but I was on the beach about 6:15 to walk and look for shells, which are everywhere, then I went for a dip in the pool at 7am. Now I'm back on the screen porch drying and hopefully sanding off. We have to check out in a couple of hours then it's off to Ft Meyers for a wildlife adventures cruise (to see dolphins, manatees, whatever decides to say Happy Mother's Day!)
