This was the start of our nature walk at "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge
The best part of Florida vacation, anoles! Used to try catching these when I was a kid, my kids still chase them.
Yum! Sea grapes...
Although we enjoyed our 4 mile walk, other than anoles and a few birds, wildlife was no where to be seen... The only alligator we saw
The shade and water provider in action
Leaving Sanibel we stopped at Edison and Ford Winter States, Ft. Myers. I fell in love with the location, the houses, porches and the gardens.
