Another Beautiful and Busy Day on Pine Island

Today was an exceptionally sunny warm day on the Island.  Started out a bit cool, but in no time it was around 80 with lower humidity.  The 4 of us left the CG at 8:15 and drove to the center of the island.  Then we got on our bikes and rode about 6 miles to the Raymary Restaurant where we had a delicious breakfast.  Back on the bikes to ride to the end of the island at Bokeelia and then back to the cars after a 16 1/2 mile ride.  That took care of our steps for the day.  

If you are ever on Pine Island, this is a wonderful
reasonably priced place to have breakfast or lunch!

This osprey was having "brunch" - a fish she caught!

Hard to tell, but these are white pelicans!

Looks like a Kodak moment to me!

Chuck and Melissa at the back of a lot that is for sale
at Bokeelia.  Can't imagine the cost, but the view is priceless!
Found out it is $699,000.  I think we will buy 2!!!

We went into Matlacha to get 3 more lbs. of fresh shrimp to have for our Happy Hour/Dinner.  Ed and Sandy, whom we have known for several years, will be joining us.  They live here in a park model about 8 months and in their RV trailer in NY the other 3 or 4 months.  She is the activity director here at the CG.

Ken and I made several additional stops before returning to the CG around 2:45.  Where does the time go????  Definitely less hours in a day on "Island Time". 

Ken and I spent the rest of the afternoon getting ready for Happy Hour.  Ed, Sandy, Melissa and Chuck were here by 4:30 and we were able to be outside.  We enjoyed snack food with our wine and then Ken grilled the shrimp.  They were fantastic, again!!!!  We ate all 3 lbs.!!!!  The 6 of us had such a good time together.  Sandy and Ed left around 7:45 and then the 4 of us played 5 Crowns - the women won!  We called it a night at 9:15.  Another wonderful day on Pine Island!
