Mid-Vacation Check-In

Hi all! Reporting in mid-vacation from Sanibel Island FL. I'll have a lot to say later on, but for now, here are a few pics:
Dusk on Sanibel - I think that might be Venus
These huge koi swam right up and nibbled my fingers
Lovely, relaxing koi pond in the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, Sarasota
Some beautiful orchids in the botanical gardens
The visit to the botanical gardens counts as "research" for my next book
Closing out with another pic of the lovely Sanibel sunset, viewed from our hotel room balcony.
