Island flowers and plants, Sanibel Island
Over on the gulf side, brown seaweed grew. And it hugged the shoreline like a thick blanket, stretching about 15 feet or more into the water. To get to clear swimming water you had to forge your way through it. Not a pain, unless grasping underwater feelings panic you!
Directions: gulf side
The water was like bath water! Couldn't call it "refreshing", but since I'm used to the cold, gray pounding surf of the New Jersey coast, this was a "refreshing" difference!
On the bayside the seaweed was sparse and green. Look at next tip to see the gulf side of seaweed!
Directions: bay side
Mike found beautiful flowers every where on the island. Wonderful gardens and some growing wild. These are just some of them.
