Being on an airplane is like home. On the way to Fort Meyers and Sanibel Island! #SavedByTheShell

Honey, we’re hoooooooome! #savedbytheshell @ftmyerssanibel – what a beautiful view to arrive to!

Fab view here at the @PinkShellResort – nerves now calming down. #savedbytheshell

I’ll say it a million times: #Florida has some of the most amazing sunsets. #savedbytheshell @ftmyerssanibel

Shaun is a happy camper. Great suggestion @ftmyerssanibel! Nervous Nellie’s is delish! #savedbytheshell

Shelling cruise ahoy! Morning boat awesomeness. I’m ready to get on the water! Toot! Toot! #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel

This area is super cute! Taking a break from our mini-cruise. #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel

Spent the day “Shelling” with @SanibelCruises. I *LOVE* hunting for shells. #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel – I had no clue my favorite beach activity even had a name. There is something so satisfying about finding that perfect souvenir to take home with you. In this case, we scored a 5 inch orange shell. Super rad!

Warm summer night. The rain has *finally* stopped and it’s a perfect night for a few drinks. #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel

Another stunning #sunset in #Florida. #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel

The more we travel, the more comfortable I feel getting into trouble. 😉 #ftmyerssanibel #savedbytheshell

Hanging out at Bert’s in Matlacha, #Florida. #savedbytheshell I’ve been notified that it is a community of drinkers with a fishing problem. I’m okay with that.

The movement is continuing – microbrews are rare but this place is an oasis. #beer #brew #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel

I don’t want to leave!!!! #savedbytheshell #ftmyerssanibel @pinkshellresort

    When I tell people I’m based in Florida, this is what they think of! Jacksonville isn’t quite this adorable though…

    • Erica August 12, 2014 at 7:11 pm #

      No but you have amazing sunsets nonetheless! *swoon*

    Your gorgeous photos are making us long for white sand and blue waters! good thing we have one more month of Saskatoon and tattooing, then we’re off to Cuba!

    • Erica August 12, 2014 at 7:11 pm #

      Mocktails work! I know a guy who can make a mean mocktail as a mixologist. <3

    Sanibel Island is definitely on our list, and when we move to Florida at the end of the year, it will be one of the first trips we take. Thanks for confirming our travel plans 🙂

    • Erica August 12, 2014 at 7:13 pm #

      It is such an amazing little place. The seashells were perfect and the water really surprised me. I’m used to brown Gulf water and this place was clear!

    I’m a sucker for punny hashtags, and I think #SavedByTheShell takes the cake =)

    I’ve been to Florida at least twice a year my entire life but never to Sanibel! For shame!

    • Erica August 12, 2014 at 7:14 pm #

      Isn’t it clever? I LOVE IT.

  10. Ani August 3, 2014 at 11:28 am #

    Erica those are some lovely photographs and you guys look so cute 🙂 Even though the picture of the sunset seems to be a hit, my favourite is the one with the boat and the thick clouds in the backdrop 🙂

    • Erica August 12, 2014 at 7:15 pm #

      Hey Ani! Thanks! I become so inspired to take pictures when I’m in locations as beautiful as this!

  11. Ernest Brown August 7, 2014 at 11:06 pm #

    Judging from the photos, the place is so amazing! Now I want to live there now, if I can afford it lol. How much does it cost to stay there?

  12. Marisa Kimura September 7, 2014 at 8:37 pm #

    How nice!!! Really your photos with the sun peering through is best Beautiful.Will be happy.

    As a Miami Beach native, it’s been nice to make it over to the Gulf Coast for a change of pace a few times of the years … Sanibel is definitely much more peaceful than Miami Beach (nothing wrong with my home obviously, but it’s good to have some contrast sometimes!)

  14. Namaste Turkey October 10, 2014 at 5:31 am #

    Looks like this island is gonna be next on my list…the pictures are great.

  15. Alex B October 21, 2014 at 12:30 am #
