"Magic is very colorful. Of this I'm sure." ~ Alan Moore

Yesterday was my birthday. Bruce surprised me with two fabulous, fabulous gifts - oh my! We then spent the day traveling from one fun spot to another.  A few years back we came across Matlacha, a stretch of land in-between the mainland and Pine Island. A funky place, littered with colorful galleries and shops, we headed back there yesterday. Many of the galleries did not permit photography inside, which I understand.  The outside spots were great, though! Bright reds, pinks, greens and blues - such fun!
































We ended our day with a wonderful meal on the beach pictured above. I'm sorry that I didn't take photos of the food - shrimp with bacon, asiago cheese, olive oil and garlic bread - and seafood strudel in lobster sauce!!!!!!  It was a wonderful birthday all the way around, and one that I will not soon forget!!!

Saturday's post will feature a couple of photos from yesterday that caught me completely by surprise - stay tuned!
