Hello Pointe Santo D35 friends!  What a beautiful spring it has been at the Sanibel beachfront condos!  This photo was taken just a few days ago.  Gorgeous sunny sky, pristine beach, and crystal clear gulf waters.  What more could you ask for?


It’s turtle season on Sanibel beach.  From now until November, different species of sea turtles will be coming ashore to lay their eggs.  If you see a small area roped off near the top of the beach by the vegetation, it is a turtle nest.  Please do not disturb them.  They will hatch late at night when the moon is bright.  Then, they follow the moonlight and head to the Gulf.  For this reason, it’s important to not leave anything on the beach at night.  Please bring up your umbrellas, chairs, shoes, etc.  These are all obstacles for the hatchlings.  Since they follow the moonlight to the water, it’s also important to turn off all lights that could draw attention away from the Gulf.  No lights should be shining toward the beach.  And, if you are lucky enough to see the little guys walking to the gulf after hatching, please do not use flash photography.  They’ll be blinded.
