The Value of Pace on Sanibel Island

There is great value put on place regarding the Island of Sanibel. It is appreciated for the abundance of nature, the tropicality, the great shell collecting and the wonderful leisure, recreational and cultural amenities it provides.

But the island provides another value that is not so easily defined in naming its pleasures.

Life on Sanibel, if you choose, can be taken at a turtle's pace.

Sanibel will provide you with the opportunity to do those little things that bring you pleasure and help you to enjoy the moment what ever you do. Take your coffee on the lanai and sit and sip. Stretch out in a hammock between two swaying palms and read a book. Take a cooler to the beach with lunch and just sit and watch the pelicans dive for their own meal.

As the humorist Will Rogers once wrote: "Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save." Sanibel will take you from the world of multi tasking, slow your pace, keep you from pushing the river to its banks, and let you enjoy life as it should be.
