Ohiophotgrl caught me catching fee extra ZZZZZs this morning. Tomorrow we change the clocks here in the 937 back one hour. That means I get an extra hours sleep, if the dogs will let me that is. Don’t forget before you go to bed tonight to set your clock back!

Trick or Treat

Hey everyone! It’s that time of year again where we get to dress up and go door to door and collect candy! I don’t know about you but I am really excited! I need you all to do me a favor…..please be careful and follow all the safety rules. What are those?

1)make sure you have something reflective on your costume so people driving can see you. 2)always stop at the street and look both ways before crossing the street. 3)listen to whom ever is taking you out. They want you to have fun and be safe as well. 4)only go to house that have the pour here light on, or they are sitting in the driveway. 5)be sure to have someone help you look through your sack of loot when you get home. Anything open throw it away! 

I’m sure there are many more rules but those are my top 5 :0) have fun and Happy Halloween!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

An Eclipes

Today where I live we had a partial eclipse.


I got some special glasses so I could watch and we made some pinhole boxes to look at the eclipse. 

How did the boxes work…


You need a box, some aluminum foil and some tape! You cut two holes on the top. One to look through and one to put aluminum foil on. You take a needle and put a small hole in the aluminum foil. Tape it on and there ya go. Here is a few shots that we got.




It was a lot of fun to watch this. Here is Ohiophotogrl and I enjoying our time


NASA of course got some better shots 


But what ever you do don’t look directly at the sun. We don’t want to hear any stories of anyone burning there retina.  We love science! 

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Walking the beach

As Ohiophotogrl and I were walking the beach we came across a few of these holes. I was pointing this out to Ohiophotogrl when something popped out of the whole.


It was a crab! After my experience earlier in the week I decided to stay clear of him. I’m pretty sure he was just as scared of me as I was of him. There was lots of animal life along the beach.


Did I mention I love the beach!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Three Crafty Ladies

What do you do on an afternoon that is too hot to be outside for very long on Sanibel Island….you go see the ladies at Three Crafty Ladies.As you can see here they have some neat fabric and a great pin you can buy while your there. They have a table in the front of the store where you can make a bracket to take home with you. That is what we did!They have all these beads to choose from to put on your bracelet and then they even have shells to add to it for a small additional cost.Ohiophotogrl let me help and her bracelet came out perfect!

If your looking for something to do on the island this is the place to check out. They also offer a few other crafting things to do so you can take home something that you made! How cool is that!

The ladies at Three Crafty Ladies were so nice and fun! We will be back again the next time we are on Sanibel! You should go and check them out!

Wonder what we’re gonna do next?

Wow that was close

Made it back to the water just in time. I was afraid I was going to stay a crab for ever.  Lucky for me the ocean water changed me back. 

After some beach time I collected a few shells


I think I could live on the beach :0) after I collected my shells I went back to the room for a nice long nap!

After I watch a little tv of course :0)

Wonder what we’re gonna do tomorrow?

The water can change you

I spent a lot of time on the beach last week with Ohiophotogrl! We spent a lot of time walking and taking photos. After a few days of enjoying the beachs of Sanibel we went over to Fort Meyers. We went out on the beach there and I started to not feel so well. I walked over to a bench and sat down for a few minutes while Ohiophotogrl went to get me some water. When she came back she had a strange look on her face. It appears I had been bitten by something and started to change…


She rushed me inside so I could look in the mirror


OMG I was turning into a crab. The waitress at the place we stopped for lunch pointed out a sign that we hadn’t seen in the Island anywhere else….


She assured Ohiophotogrl that this happens to potatos in these parts. She said all we had to do was put me back into the water and I’d be fine. This didn’t stop Ohiophotogrl from taking a few more photos though.


As we walked along we found a Restraunt called Pinchers. So I had another photo taken.


Good news is I should be back to normal tomorrow. Which leads me to my next question….wonder what we’re gonna do tomorrow?
