Hell on Wheels

IMG_1562wmSo the Queen and I decided to ring in the New Year with a fun little bike ride on Sanibel Island. We stopped off at Billy’s Bikes on Periwinkle at around 9:30am and made our way West. Halfway there, we figured we were close to Pine Cove Beach, so we stopped and parked the bikes for a little morning stroll.

Neither of us were dressed for the beach, so we thought it would turn into a mini shell hunt once the sand hit our toes.

Instead, we admired the New Year’s eve artwork in the sand, like this giant octopus:

and this shelled dolphin:

sea turtle, mate:

and the Sandy Kingdom of Pine Cove City:

There was also plenty of wildlife, err, wild-death? Like these Horseshoe Crabs:

and this half-eaten Stone Crab

Which were probably eaten by this guy, who stood chill as could be:

So a 5 mile bike ride turned into an art trip and a mini safari. Not a bad way to kick off the New Year, huh?
