Three Days of Summer, Sandy Paw’s Winter Get-away (Part 2)

After a couple of long days on the road, we delighted in the warm, wonderful sunshine of South Florida, relishing in outdoor waterside eateries, and soft sandy beaches. Sandy Paws enjoyed exploring new grounds and meeting ODD friends.

Carefully sniffing the fauna on Bowman’s Beach, Sanibel Island

In a small rental boat, we explored backwater mangrove islands,

Image

Colorful waters and condos,

Image

new types of friends,

Image

Image

pristine beaches,

Image

Image

and across “New Channel,” sighted a special beach, … for DOGS!!! (Whoo Hooo!)

Image

Sandy Paws was a little intimidated at first by the BIG dogs playing…

Image

but quickly fell in love with a cute canine friend – a back beach romance.

Unfortunately, it was soon time to go,

stopping first at the doggie shower

and saying goodbye as the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.
