sun, surf, sand and socks...

Tonight my sister-in-law shall be betrothed on Ft Myers Beach, FL - a lovely backdrop, a seriously nice break from the new overnight freezes of Wisconsin. I had a lovely time during the rehearsal last night - my only jobs included purse handler and small-child watcher - my own small child. I enjoy observing my girls pick shells with such vigor, such newness, we even found Patrick of Spongebob(promptly murdered him and stuck him in a basket to take home to show the third grade class, egads. The fine sand on our feets is such a delight. As much as I balk at it when I am home "appreciating the seasons", I could live with full-time access to the beach, I know I could make this sacrifice.

My creation

Tomorrow we have the day earmarked for Sanibel where the real shell picking is. Then Monday we are onward to Disney. So far, our trip has provided time for some relaxing as well for a bit of knitting. I am nearing the end of my third clue in Kirsten's Mystery Sock KAL...

Beautiful photos! If there's any time of year that I actually enjoyed Florida, it was late fall...finally the heat & humidity was just right, and it hadn't yet become the dreaded "brown" season.

Enjoy the rest of your vacation, and congrats to your sister!
