We spent the second half of our vacation visiting my aunt in North Ft Myers.

|We ate cake...chocolate ganache to be exact|
|while Karma watched|
|We went to Sanibel Island|
|where Steve found another geocache|
|We walked along the beach & wondered why all the dead fish?|
|We later found out they had a red tide|
|The sunset was beautiful though|

We had a fabulous NYE dinner with my aunt & a few of her friends. We were home & in bed by 11PM. Not real exciting but we were planning to get up at 5AM for the long drive home.
Vacation was awesome but in typical fashion it was too short. We drove home yesterday in 14 hours which was shocking since it took over 16 hours to get to St. Pete. We were happy to be home by 8PM on Sunday although not so happy with the temperature. It is ccccold. We even had snow today.
We plan to take a few extra days next Christmas so we have more time there.
A few things we would like to do next year -
Kayak around Sanibel - hopefully there will be no red tide.
Bring our bikes to Sanibel too. There are bike paths all over the island.
Bike more of the Pinellas Trail.
