I arrived at Detroit Metro Airport last night, and spent the night at my sister's. This morning, I was on the road at 6:30 am, a time that - on the beach - was the beginning of first light. Here, it didn't begin to be even barely light until nearly 8 am. I miss the sunshine. I miss the sound of the surf and the cry of the osprey. I even miss the ridiculous sand fleas, that look like cartoon characters as they tumble in the waves.
As I go through the photos of my trip, I remember the many things I didn't post about. Faces and sights and sounds, more than I can post here. I am glad to be home (and especially glad to have found and turned off the faucet that has been dripping for the past 9 days. Not only an almost-criminal waste of water, but a mistake that I will pay for dearly when the water bill arrives.) I brought back a lot of sand and teeth and shells, but I left part of me on Sanibel.
This one is my favorite, I think it should have won the whole caboodle!
