Just a quick note to say that Internet access will keep me offline most of the time, though the Lee County Library here in Fort Meyers has lovely wireless access. We got library cards this morning and already can check out up to 50 books!!! Whoopie!!! So far, Allen's digging up books on India in the 1840s for me, and the writing is going well.

I haven't taken any photographs and am not sure that any photo would capture this tropical landscape. The bridges between Fort Meyers and the nearby islands arch up quite high so we can look out over the cays and bays and see ocean. The landscape is flat, rolling green tops of palm trees with a few high rises here and there against a pale blue sky. Balmy weather at 77 to 80 degrees today. Everyone's wearing shorts, and I begin to understand why people come here from everywhere, and not just for the fishing.

We did a real grocery shoppping yesterday as we settle into our 2 bedroom apartment for the month. I actually cooked! Something great, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts all stir-fried, served with a side salad of arugula (never used that before) with macademia nuts, cucumber and Green Goddess dressing. Ah! All else is well, even though a small green lizard scooted across the living room floor last night. Make it a good week!
