We Bought the MIL's house and we're all living together.

One month ago, we left on vacation, flying to Florida for a nine day stay, visiting old friends, our favorite island and our younger son. After a cold winter of record snow in many parts of our great Northeast, we were oh so happy to escape to the sun, sand and aquamarine sea of Anna Maria Island.
The two photos below, side by side, are of the Anna Maria Pier at different times of the day. The first is early dawn, a fisherman in silhouette, heading to the end of the pier to throw a line. The right photo is dusk when lights go on and day is done. It's the loveliest little pier.
The next two photos were taken at a gorgeous dinner arranged for us by the kids at the Turtle Club on Vanderbilt Beach, Naples. My son and his GF spent time with us on AMI before returning to their apt on Vanderbilt Island. She works at the Turtle Club which is lovely, right on the beach, awesome food and very chic. We dressed up beach style and had a blast, evidenced by the happy faces.
Sunset from our ringside table looks like this...
Just a snap but I love the look on my son's face here.
Now for a typical day at the beach. The water is Caribbean blue; clear, clean, gorgeous.
Beach equipment. Where's the umbrella?
My favorite beach
Yes, a baby hammerhead, swimming along the shore line. Yikes!
A friend of mine is on his way down to AMI today. He has ten days of this. It is so awesome. I cannnot ask for more.
