Time to say good-bye

by Meghann on July 15, 2011

What do you think? Does Maddie looks like she’s ready to go home?


I don’t think so either. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maddie has had way too much fun on this island vacation.

One spoiled pup, but I love her anyways. ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m not ready to go home either. It’s been a great vacation that has flown by way too quickly. Maddie and I have the 9:00am boat out of here and I’m sad to leave the island behind.

For those of you who asked – we stayed on North Captiva Island. You can read my North Captiva Island Review from last year by clicking here.

I took advantage of my last morning on the island with a solo 3 mile run. It’s HOT and HUMID here, so even though I left just after 6:30am it was still too hot to go much farther than that.

I made myself an easy bowl of cereal upon my return.


  • Cheerios
  • Kashi Go Lean Crisp
  • Plain Chobani
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries



See ya in Tampa!

Aww. . . it’s always tough to pull yourself away from a vacation and back to the real world, eh?
Just think that you have next year to look forward to!

Have a safe ride back! You had such a wonderful vacation. I’m jealous ๐Ÿ˜‰ It looks like Maddie really enjoyed herself too!

I’m glad that you had such a fabulous vacation! (I’m also super jealous too, still. It’s not going away.)

And as always, the pups are adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Those pictures of Maddie are SO cute. It looks like you both enjoyed yourselves!

Looks like Maddie had an absolute blast there! She’ll be sad to go. But the best part of going home is sleeping in your own bed again

Are your dogs just that well behaved, or is the island just that off-leash friendly? I’d love to take mine on a beach vacay, but my Schnauzer can be a runner.

13 Meghann July 15, 2011 at 9:28 am

It’s a very dog friendly island. I never saw any dogs on leashes

Sorry it had to end! I’m sad too! I was loving seeing your pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maddie is just too cute – I can’t even take it!

I thought 6 am would guarantee some relief from the heat earlier this week in Tampa for a run and boy was I wrong! It was already in the high 80’s!

I don’t blame Maddie for not wanting to leave! I wouldn’t want to go, either. I always get so sad when vacations end.

awww, the last day of vacay is always bitter-sweet. I’m usually ready to go home (and back to my pup – Maddie is a lucky lady she got to go too!!!), but I’m always sad to leave and have to get back into the “real world” routine. Looked like so much fun though!!!

The last day of a good vacation is so bittersweet. Hard to say goodbye but nice to be back home and unpacked (now if only someone else would do the laundry).

25 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife July 15, 2011 at 11:27 am

26 Lauren July 15, 2011 at 11:50 am

Maddie is such a beautiful dog!

Hope you had a lovely vacation! I’ve been to Captiva Island, but never North Captiva. It looks like such a relaxing, idyllic place.

I love Captiva – I haven’t been to North Captiva where y’all are but my fiancee lives in Fort Myers and Sanibel/Captiva are our favorite beach spots. Glad you enjoyed vacation! R&R vacays are my favorite kind ๐Ÿ™‚
