The good news is that my in-laws survived hurricane Irma!
They hunkered down in a lower, inside unit of their condo building, just a palm frond past the mandatory evacuation zone on the other side of highway 41 in Naples, Florida. I'm glad the devastation was not nearly as bad as it would have been if Irma hit Naples with all the fury of a class 4. (Irma hit Naples at a level 3 - downgraded from 4) However, since the whole United States has been watching Naples on pins and needles, I'm sure you all know this already! The mayor said the storm surge wasn't nearly as massive as they feared it would be. Still, it's a big fat mess down there.
I hope that my beloved Lover's Key is still there.
Behold the sunny delight of Lover's Key during better times...
All of these photos were taken on beautiful Lover's Key just south of Fort Myers Beach, Florida.
Let the clean up begin...
Have a meaningful September 11.
P.S. I'm really excited to share new images from my upcoming children's book: Mrs. Jones' Tea Party Pop over for a visit!
