    Sanibel Flag Football - Another Great Season

    Sanibel Real Estate
    127 children, 14 teams, 28 volunteer coaches, 150 practices, 49 games, four or five PTA moms, one Recreation Department, and many patient parents: This is what our community is all about. And this is what Friday Night Lights is all about on Sanibel.

    We just competed our ninth season of the NFL sanctioned Sanibel Flag Football League. There were are a record number of boys and girls participating this year, and we played games under the lights on the fields at the Sanibel School on Friday nights this winter. The experiences this year ranged from kids learning which way to run, what a first down is, and how to complete a pass to reverse sweeps, play action passes, head fakes on stop and gos, and even a trick play where the center hands the ball to a running back claiming the ball is flat while the runner takes off.

    Sand Castle Construction - A Competitive Work of Art

    Sand Castle Construction - A Competitive Work of Art

    For the past two days, I have enjoyed receiving numerous photos from friends on the beach. While I am busy working here in the Sanibel office, they are enjoying sand castle construction. Each castle constructed gets better and more elaborate than the last. I'm tempted to join them on the beach and see just how they manage to build such works of art.

    Fun Fact: The largest Sand Sculpting event occurs every year at Fort Myers Beach with over 1,000 tons of sand and world champion sculptors as well as amateur categories. The event is held at the Holiday Inn 6890 Estero Blvd in November each year.

    January 2012 Fishing Report

    Sanibel Real Estate
    Great weather here in Ft. Myers and Sanibel Island. Water temperatures are colder and bait is scarce. I spend much of my time on the polling platform this time of year sneaking up on redfish and trout. The tides are low and the water is gin clear. Long cast with top water action is perfect in Jan. and Feb.
