Glimpses of Boca

We had another wonderful stay in Boca Grande, my 32nd summer vacation there! And I love it just as much and want to stay forever just as badly every time. Here are a few shots from our week.

Kelly and Girls Boca 2011

This was just before heading down to South Beach Diner for dinner.  We took the golf cart everywhere, and there were no hair dryers or make-up allowed all week.  Heaven!  I don't usually go for the mother/daughters matching dresses thing, but the girls picked these out and they were on sale, so I couldn't resist.  And I love Fresh Produce dresses, perfect for the beach.   


A bit of the island's lovely flora.  Gasparilla Island, the seat of which is Boca Grande, is full of hibiscus in all shades.

Goofy 2011

We can never resist a goofy shot.  Click here to see last year's goofy shot. 

Girls on beach

Miles of wide open beaches. 

Clouds coming in

Storm clouds coming in from the east.  The condo cluster second from the right was our home for the week.

alien clouds

Oh, how I wished I had my tripod when this storm rolled over; this shot was handheld. This cloud formation reminded us of something you'd see out of a science fiction movie, with the aliens about to land!

Now it's back to work!  I hope you all had a wonderful week.
