I think I may have a potential best friend wandering the beaches in Sanibel Island.
Look what Ryan and I stumbled upon on our morning walk along the beach…
“Pie is awesome.”
Naturally I responded in kind.
“Cake is better.”
Just had to make sure that was clear.
Early this morning we wandered along the beach, soaking up the sun and looking for shells. We saw seagulls enjoying breakfast as they flew high into the air with shells before dropping them so they would crack open, revealing the critter inside that they would then eat.
They’re scrappy lil’ guys!
We also came upon a jellyfish which we made sure to avoid.
We were a little late to the beach for the prime-time shelling, but Ryan did have one awesome find…
Detective Scooby Doo!
We then spent a good five minutes trying to remember all of the names of the characters from Scooby-Doo. We remembered Scooby, Scrappy, Shaggy and Fred and were convinced that there was a character named Wilma. Not so. Velma! And Daphne too, of course.
Even though we all grazed through the morning, we still wanted to go out for a late breakfast/early lunch and once again followed your recommendations!
The Over Easy Café came highly recommended, so we were all excited to order!
I opted for two poached eggs with Canadian bacon an English muffin and tomato slices.
I turned it into a breakfast sandwich!
Everyone loved their meal and agreed that the Over Easy Café was a wonderful find. We had a great time dining outside among adorable dogs and friendly people, including several giggling waitresses who, according to a man sitting nearby, had a crush on Ryan. Hubba, hubba.
After breakfast, we meandered over to some nearby shops and had a blast looking at some of the fun goodies… especially those in a doggie boutique.
Lucky for Sadie I didn’t buy any pink Doggles.
We were all tempted by the delicious looking dog treats… but I’m pretty sure they looked better than they tasted (to humans at least).
After browsing for a bit longer, we headed back to the condo to change into our swim suits, grab a snack and head out to the beach.
It was such a beautiful day!
I spent almost all of my time at the beach reading Water for Elephants. I booted Ryan from reading this book with me because he fell asleep twice when we tried reading it together. I’m not sure it was a good fit for him, but I am loving it! I’m a little more than halfway done and I just want to keep reading!
Eventually it was time to head in to get started on dinner.
While the guys snapped green beans, my mom prepped the fish and I prepared cauliflower for roasting and squash for grillin’.
I filled my plate and couldn’t get enough! Everything was delicious.
The grouper actually came from one of my dad’s scuba diving trips! Extra special!
After dinner we were all in the mood for dessert and piled into the car to head to Pinocchio’s for ice cream.
I ate all of my bowl, some of Ryan’s and about half of my mom’s mud pie sundae (the best of them all!).
Don’t you love my two bowls?
Truth be told, I ate too much ice cream. I honestly felt sick afterwards and had to lay down for a while. Ooph. Apparently I don’t know my own limits sometimes.
Fortunately I’m feeling much better now. I guess chillin’ on the couch with the fam and watchin’ a little Titanic on TV cures overeating stomach aches.
Off to relax!
