Well, I just returned from some R & R on Sanibel Island. Every year my mom, Toddy, and my sisters Ellen and Jenny and I head down for a week. Our MO is to hit the local coffee joint, The Bean, each morning to get our fix of caffeine, sometimes shop for dinner and always hit the beach to shell and read books. (This year, Jenny stayed home nursing her husband through back pain and eventual surgery. He goes home today after just a day in the hospital….the wonders of modern medicine.)
This trip, I read three books by local Sanibel author, Randy Wayne White. Try saying that fast. Mark and I have enjoyed his writing and have a ball recognizing the local landmarks. We have also become great fans of the rum drink he makes using a Nicaraguan rum. You’ll have to read his one of his latest to get it or you can always email me and I’ll send you the recipe.
But now, it is back to the real world….which is just as lovely. It is always nice to come home.
