Boca Grande Birthday Weekend

Guess who stayed here for her birthday this weekend?



Mr. Beachy surprised me with a stay at the Gasparilla Inn on Boca Grande!

Here's the beach club. Too windy and chilly for a swim this weekend, but isn't it gorgeous?


Is Mr. Beachy the greatest or what?

I'm not a golfer, but this may be one of the prettiest courses I've ever seen!



We had drinks at the hotel bar (called BZ's). It was just a little chilly this weekend so our bartender fixed me up with a couple Nutty Irishmen! Yum!



This is the main dining room. Isn't is beautiful?


We had a wonderful dinner on the island at the Pink Elephant. We ate shrimp cocktail, mussels, and a great flatbread topped with duck confit, fresh mozzarella, shitake musrooms and figs.



Back to the hotel...
Look! Real room keys!



Our room. The best hotel bed I've ever slept in. Tempurpedic matress!
The room was so beachy. The colors and fabrics were girly and very "Florida."




Our view of the golf course.


Cute bathroom!








I'd recommend this hotel to anyonewanting a quiet island getaway. It was the best birthday gift I've ever received. Thank you Mr. Beachy! I love you!

Looks like an AMAZING birthday celebration in a very nicely decorated hotel! Also, I love your banner with the sand-man! A friend of mine actually made that her christmas card a few years ago HAHA
