Paradise Lost!

Watching the devastation that hurricane Ian perpetrated on the west coast of Florida has been very difficult. It’s made me very sad. I have spent so many happy hours in Ft. Myers Beach, Captiva and Sanibel Island. The area is or was such a delight. The damage and the lives of so many have been changed forever. We had even been talking about a trip down there over the coming winter. If you can help with any kind of donation, please do.
