SANIBEL ISLAND BLUE


Join me for Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's...


Last Thanksgiving Carter and I spent a week at Sanibel Island, Florida. We had a Condo on the beach and enjoyed the blue skies,walks on the beach, beautiful sunrises and amazing sunsets. It was my first visit to this island paradise but I hope not my last. I took many photos and so on this Blue Monday, I want to share three photos that remind me of Sanibel and the color blue.





This year we will be staying home and enjoying a Thanksgiving with family.

Hi Linda,

Regarding doing a mosaic, it is way simplier than I ever thought. Mary, over at Little Red House has a super simple tutorial to do it. that was how I learned. here is her post for making mosaics:

I bet Thanksgiving week is a great time to visit the beach. You probably didn't have to share it with too many people!
Hugs,

My favorite place is the west coast of Florida. We go to Anna Maria Island-so old Florida.
