Sanibel Island

Take a short for the weekend to refresh whether in the sun or just to have some fun.

Sea Slug and some kind of coral.

This coral felt a little slimy. Priceless face. D Man was totally in his element.

Ducky holding the coral.

D Man with Shell Casing and a Oyster.

Can't forget the hand stand contest.
D Man and His Daddy having a handstand contest. Guess who won?
Not bad Daddy:)

Ducky doing a hand stand on the beach.

Ducky and D Man holding a LIVE sand dollar.
Our niece found it in the water, How cool was that. I have never seen a LIVE one before.

We found this sponge on the shoreline and in the sponge there were:
Starfish(3), Crabs (15 or more), Shrimp.
This was definitely a treasure.

Sea Star

Giant Oyster, Sponge and Sea Star in our bucket.
The Oyster was alive.

We DON"T keep anything that is alive. We ALWAYS put it back after we observe it.
What's so neat about this trip is that WE prayed to see alot of sea life and we did. Thank you God!
Also this school year we are studying Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day.
This is a lesson in action, I love this kind of learning.
Hope you have a place to explore and enjoy God's creation!
Blessings for the Summer!!!
