Sanibel Island


May 21st marked the end of another long semester of nursing school and with summer classes starting less than two weeks after, Stell and I hoped a quick flight down to Sanibel Island in (gulp) Florida to unwind for a few days.  We dodged tropical storm Alberto – muchas gracias for heading out to the gulf amigo – and got a few days of much needed rest.  I only took this one picture the whole time there, primarily to be able to write this post to remind myself that I don’t need to fly endless hours to some foreign land every time I feel the need to travel.  The States has some pretty awesome spots to explore, and this one ranks right up there with the best.

Eze, St. Paul de Vence, and a bit more Nice.
