    Lately it seems that the island has been crawling with reptiles. In the past two weeks, we have encountered Box Turtles, Snapping Turtles, Yellow Eared Sliders, Black Racers and Iguanas all in our yard or pool. It makes for great fun and excitement trying to capture the juvenile snapping turtles as they swim evasively in the pool. Not to mention the exercise as I run circles around my pool with a net in hand. So far in the past 24 hours the count is two snapping turtles and one box turtle.

    Lemonade Stands on Sanibel Island

    Sanibel Kids set up Lemonade Stand
    The long Summer days of my childhood in Baltimore were filled with hours of riding bikes, building forts and tree houses, and playing baseball in the backyard with my three brothers until we could barely see as the sun would set. Now that I am raising my 7 year old son and 9 year old daughter here on Sanibel Island, it is fun to see that as much as life changes many things still remain the same.

Not so! Our yard provided my son with the perfect class on anoles. I was his only student but nevertheless his enthusiasm was full throttle.
