Memories of Sanibel


Thanks so much to Beth O. and Maureen R. from Pittsburgh, PA for sharing some of their new home decor with us!

We enjoyed time at Ocean’s Reach twice. We recently ordered some Mixtiles from our visits at Ocean’s Reach and Sanibel to hang on our wall. Thought you’d like to see it!

Kudos, ladies — What a wonderful way to remember fond times on Sanibel!  » Read more

Rudolph the Rough-Toothed Dolphin


Two deepwater dolphins with hearing problems, including one that was rescued off Sanibel Island, have now been paired together and are calling the Clearwater Marine Aquarium “home.”

The pair — Rudolph (named as he was rescued from Sanibel around the holidays last year) and Rex — are already “best buds” as their species likes to be together.  The two were paired together once the National Marine Fisheries Service did hearing tests and determined that they cannot echo-locate due to deafness and would likely not be able to survive in the wild.  » Read more

Making Your Voice Be Heard


Finally, Election Day is right around the corner, and no matter who you vote for, we encourage you to make your voice heard tomorrow!

Today, though, we wanted to break through the noise and treat you to a something a little different — a chorus of voices from Southwest Florida.

Many of you may remember that, several years ago, Dina’s daughter, Dara, was part of an award-winning high school a cappella group that we have right here in Fort Myers.  » Read more

Hocus Pocus


Halloween just got a whole lot spookier!

As if 2020 hasn’t been strange enough, we’re getting a second full moon this month and on Halloween night, no less!

On October 1st, we had a stunning Harvest Moon that illuminated the skies.  On October 31st, we’ll have a Hunter’s Blue Moon, not because it’s going to be blue in color, but because it will be the second full moon in a single calendar month.  » Read more

Taste of the Islands – Reimagined!


The 39th Annual Taste of the Islands has been reimagined in 2020 to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

This year, instead of a festival setting, the 31 participating restaurants will offer their “Taste” items throughout the month of November in their own locales.  A portion of proceeds will be donated to CROW.

Guests can purchase a “Taste Passport” with a listing and map of the restaurants.   » Read more
