Little Gasparilla


Yesterday we spent the day out on Little Gasparilla Island friends of ours rented a cottage on the beach. In case you don't know you can only access this beautiful little island by boat. I have not been out there for about 10 years ~ it definitely won't be 10 years until I go back. What a pristine place it is. Once on the island you can only get around by golf cart and there is only one "main road" basically just a sand path that runs the length of the island. Our friends took us on a tour and did I ever wish I could buy a place there. On the island there is tiny little chapel, a golf cart repair shop (boy was that guy smart) and the phone company (I think it's some sort of sub-station) they are the only 3 non-residential places on the whole island. We noticed that "they" are in the process of building a few new homes and all I can think is that -- you must be very organized when doing something on that scale - no quick trips to Home Depot. This saying was hanging on the wall in the dining area of the cottage where we stayed. I just loved it. If you ever get the opportunity to go out to Little Gasparilla don't miss it!

Cute sign.....we too, have friends who live there most of the year. The shelling is phenomenal because there aren't many people beachcombing! If you look through my blog you'll find several photos of different things taken while we were there.

See you Wednesday!!
