We LOVE this house and we love Boca Grande. This is our second trip down this year and a return to a spot we’ve been many times before. The beautiful ospreys and funny pelicans and smiling dolphins seem to welcome us back as much as the friendly people did. Susan’s house is just perfect, as always. And yet, there were some new touches to appreciate—a comfy new chair in the living room was an ideal spot to curl up with a good book. I love to sip my morning cup of tea on the front screened porch while we plan what we’ll do that day. Town is a short walk away and full of restaurants and interesting shops. From tasty lunches at the Loose Caboose (and their famous ice cream), to darn good pizza at Sisters, to an excellent dinner at the Temptation, we had our choice of great restaurants. But we didn’t go to all of them because Hudson’s sells fresh fish and great steaks and Susan’s kitchen is very well equipped for cooking. A meal at the Sunset Grille is always a must as we watch the sun set over the Gulf (although I’ve still never seen the green flash). I was sad to see the bookstore owner had retired and the shop was closed but loved making full use of the Community Center library. A few places were not yet open for the season which began two weeks after our stay, but that didn’t matter. Swimming in the gulf, reading by the pool in the back, and walking on the beach are really all I want to do in this quiet little corner of paradise.
