Great day on the water with a happy group of ladies. I knew it was going to be a great trip when Ann peered over the bow of the boat and said “you are wearing a different hat Capt. Brian.” Ann is from Minnesota and her cousins Lynn, Pattie and Lori are from Montana. Lori’s laugh should be a ring tone. Pattie is sharp as a whip and made me laugh. Lynn is an avid sheller and has a great collection. Ann is a crazy sheller and shell crafter. (I am going to do a blog on her wild shell wall she created, so stay tuned for that one) We left the dock as the sun was rising. The ride out to the island was filled with smiles. Ann stepped of the boat and found the most amazing leafy jewel box that I have seen in 20 years. (I personally have never found one.) We all enjoyed the sounds of the morning on the beach. The beach was stunning. (no matter how many times I go there, it still is inspiring to the eye) We all enjoyed the beach and I didn’t want to leave but I had to get back to the opening ceremonies of the Sanibel Shell Fair. Thank you ladies for a happy day on the water!
