Author:

Sundial Beach Resort & Spa (www.sundialresort.com) is serious about its U.S. patriotism. So much so that the resort has scheduled official Flag Raising ceremonies at 8 a.m. on Memorial Day, Flag Day and July 4, accompanied by a musical tribute from attendees. A costumed Uncle Sam will share in the festivities.

Christmas Entertaining: Decking the Halls

Author:

It’s time for the family to return to Sanibel and spend Christmas with us. Just like with Thanksgiving, the plan is to have the big meal at Sundial Resort but do a few more casual activities at the house. However, before the out-of-towners arrive, my husband and I are hosting a Friendsmas. Friendsmas, a.k.a. Friends Christmas, is a fun way for all of us to gather and celebrate the holiday without it conflicting with travel plans and family time.
