How wonderful. Love the new background on your blog. Enjoy the sun and think of us as there is a big snow storm moving across Ontario tomorrow.

You are enjoying a long and wonderful vacation! Thankfully up here in NYC we are blessed with a mild winter. The beach looks so pristine. xo

It's been so long since I have seen white sandy beaches, you make me homesick for Florida, especially the gulf. Enjoy, and soak up the sunshine.

Boy, I haven't seen an otter in years. Loving that beach. Looks like a fun place. Enjoy.

Wow! You are having a wonderful time, Rosemary! You've been down there for quite some time... going home, ever?? ;-)

I'd LOVE to see a manatee!
