Every so often, you might see some wildlife just looking out the window.  Turtles, marsh rabbits, and...cats?

Luminary Bags

WE’RE STILL HERE…but we got a little wet.

September is the height of the Hurricane Season, and 2020 was no exception.  A tropical depression going across Florida and was going to be a guaranteed rainmaker for the weekend of September 12th.  Then we were surprised...

Blue Giraffe outdoor seating

As we approach autumn, we look forward to quieter, more comfortable days and nights in Southwest Florida.  Cooler breezes will be upon us and we want to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible, including lunch or dinner.

Recently, we were asked which restaurants offered...
