It was still dark this morning when I took these photos. After finishing the Zauberball socks I remembered this Watermelon Stripes sock I had started at least two years ago. I started working on this during the movie. I can't remember why I ever put this sock down. The yarn is incredibly soft and the colors are wonderful. The yarn is from Sunshine Yarns, one of my favorite indie dyers.
I am going to end today's post with a few more trip photos. I had a lot of people write to ask exactly where we stayed in Captiva Island. We rented a house that was on the beach and had this fantastic pool through Royal Shell. My husband really should have been a travel agent. He scouts out deals for plane tickets, houses, rental cars.... he is completely awesome and fun.
This house was nothing fancy and sat between some gigantic mansions (which we thought was funny). For us it was perfect. We didn't spend much time inside at all, it was comfortable and clean, and there was plenty of room for everyone. We ate several dinners out by the pool and the beach access was the best, about a 30 second walk down a path. Royal Shell is a home rental agency that I would highly recommend as their customer service is top-notch.
The Captiva Island beach is so private, non-commercialized and gorgeous. We couldn't get enough of it.
The shell and creature collecting was spectacular.
This is what the weather was like everyday.
It was thrilling to see green leaves and bushes and flowers. Spring can't come quick enough at home.
My son did a lot of fishing which was fun. He caught fish and would just throw them back out. The sunsets were so beautiful every night. We would run down to the beach and just watch the glory.
Two out in the ocean and two sleepy-heads.
