So 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?
