“hark, now hear the sailors cry,
smell the sea, and feel the sky
let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic...”
~Van Morrison
Did a little sailing around southwest Florida's barrier islands. We chartered a sailboat for five days and went exploring.
First stop--Useppa Island
A place of steady breezes...
Beautiful orchids...
Banyon trees...


Curved palms....
And, of course, beautiful sunsets.


  1. Frangipani is one of my favorite words. And how nice of the twins to pose, one on each pole.

  2. Glorious! Especially the first shot. What I wouldn't give to sail right now!

  3. I have to say that I was going to say exactly what Hiker said (did you follow that??). I love the word Frangipani. Love that Van Morrison song too - my absolute favorite of his... You should be careful. This set of photos could cause an influx or new residents.
