Wordful Wednesday – Sanibel Island, Florida

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

Sanibel Island is one of our favorite vacation destinations.  I only wish it  were closer to home and not across the country.  Sanibel is known for it’s amazing shell beaches and wildlife refuge (J. N. “Ding” Darling), plus it’s home to one of my favorite restaurants, The Island Cow. We first came here two years ago, and loved it so much we had to come back again this year.  The laid-back atmosphere, fabulous shelling and Ding Darling refuge were a few things that we wanted to experience again.

I cannot even begin to tell you how fabulous the shells are.  The beaches are literally LITTERED with shells at places so thick you can’t even find the sand!  I could seashell here all day, everyday.
