Ft. Myers, FL report

But first the baseball report:  Charlie at the Tigers' field in Lakeland last Sunday.  Then he attended a Phillies' game in Clearwater, and a Yankees' game in Tampa.  We both went to a Pirates' game in Bradenton, where we were called out of game, by name, and told it is illegal to leave a dog in a closed car, even in the shade and even with the windows cracked open, so sign to accept the ticket, and move OUT.
Charlie replete with Stone crab claws looking out at the beach near St.Pete Beach.
The "pet friendly" beach along the causeway to Sanibel Island, where C walked Zeke this morning while I was sewing in the motel room in Ft. Myers.
Here I am knitting in the shade of a palm tree at Ralph Bunche Beach.  This beach was the first and only beach in this county designated (in 1949) for blacks until the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  

The blocks I made today for the Spoolspinners' mystery.  Since we can't leave Zeke in the motel room alone [motels' rules], and we can't leave him in the car alone [Florida rules], I stayed home with Zeke, and Charlie gave our second ticket away at the ballpark.  I was glad to get a lot done and also watched a little of So.FL and NC basketball game as well as the poor performance of our Michigan State Spartans. 

Tomorrow across to the East Coast.


Race situation is better than in 1949!
Lovely visit with the Rahns on Sanibel
No longer sunburned
