I don’t think this great white egret is too impressed by this sign.
When I travel I try to find a gloriously tacky souvenir to bring home for my parents. In Sanibel, that means finding something made of seashells. As it turns out, I had to spend quite some time deciding amongst the bountiful options of Christmas tree ornaments. I very nearly picked out this starfish scuba diver, who looks to me like Beaker (the muppet) on a beach adventure:
They loved it.
While on Sanibel Island we visited the Ding Darling wildlife refuge. We had a guided tour. At one of the stops we walked into a wooded area and the tour guide pointed out the tree crabs. They were everywhere. And they are super fast, too. It was at this time I decided Florida is made at least in part of nightmares.
