While at the beach, we celebrated our 7th wedding anniversary with a relaxing day and then a night out at a nice restaurant. We ate really early and just enjoyed our meal and sat and talked. It was a great way to spend an anniversary! We are so blessed to have each other and our beautiful boys and I never want to take it for granted.
Did I mention that we rented a convertible? We popped the top down and just rode around the island, looked at houses and all the beautiful scenery! No room for car seats back there, huh?!
We loved walking around and digging for all the beautiful shells. When you really look very closely, you can see all the tiny, intricate details. The whole time at the beach I just kept thinking about the beauty of God's creation....the tiny shells, the hypnotic crash of the waves, the salt, the clouds and sunset. I love being reminded that HE made it all!
One place that we went back to from last year was The Island Cow. It usually has a pretty long wait and this night was no different. It's a fun, loud, great place to eat!
Our very last night we took the advice of some nice folks that we met that have been coming to Sanibel for 30 years and we went to a restaurant called The Timbers. It was THE best restaurant that we have eaten at! If you go to Sanibel, make sure you eat there. I was sad that we ate there for our last night because I wanted to come back again the next night!
And, pretty much the most epic sign at a random antique store on the island.... Interesting?!
Goodbye, Sanibel! It was a fantastic week to relax, reconnect and enjoy celebrating our wedding anniversary. I have no idea if we'll come back again one day or try new and different places another year? Either way, it was a very beautiful, quiet, and relaxing place to vacation!
