The Pink Elephant

My d.h. met me after work at The Pink Elephant. It’s an iconic restaurant in Boca Grande. The locals fondly refer to it as simply, The Pink. The downstairs is casual and the upstairs is a little more formal with a dress code. Both upstairs and down boasts a beautiful ambiance. When you receive your beverage it will be adorned by an elephant perched on the rim of your glass.

You will recognize The Pink by the ornamental pink elephant weathervane on top of the modern looking building on Bayou Street. The food and the service really was amazing.

Look At This Tree!

I worked on a Caregiver job for a few weeks in the Palmer Ranch area of South Sarasota. The lady I cared for had this unique tree near her home. The pictures do not do it justice. It is stunning!

I was told it is a Floss Silk tree. These beautiful flowers will be followed by pods that are embedded with silk-like floss that was once used to stuff pillows.

The trunk has a medieval appearance.
