Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped

If you drive down to the end of St. Pete Beach, Florida, past the historic and very pink Loews Don Cesar Hotel Resort, you’ll find yourself in charming Pass-a-Grille Beach.  And it’s there on tiny Vina Del Mar Island that mailboxes — yes, mailboxes — make you smile.  Well, at least we smiled.  And we’re betting when you see how the U. S. Mail in this tiny stretch of America has been enveloped by sea creatures, you just may smile, too!

Enveloped by a big-eyed sea horse . . .

And this one cuddled by a huggable manatee — while the little one looks longingly for the postman!

Or how about being enveloped by a big ol’ wide-mouth bass?

And last, this slick, silver dolphin proud to be enveloping a mailbox at the end of a Florida driveway.

Totally enveloped now?  Not even close.  Check out more examples of this week’s word in the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Enveloped.

    This is such a cool take on, Rusha. It looks like I have missed all you recent post from my Reader. I will need to re-subscribe.

  2. I remember driving down the east coast of Florida and seeing similar PO boxes. Peggy and I were intrigued, like you. –Curt

    • Thanks for taking a look and commenting. I’ve been without wi-fi for a week, so I haven’t responded to any of your posts. Looking forward to catching up, though. Best wishes for a good, long weekend and week ahead.

  3. Thanks, Judy. We loved this little neighborhood and couldn’t believe the mailboxes!! Isn’t travel wonderful?

  4. Okay, this is perfect and has to bring a smile to each of your readers. Love it. 🙂

    • Judy, sometimes when I respond on my phone, the comments don’t get posted in the right places. Just wanted you to know I appreciate your taking a look and smiling just as we did when we saw this cute mailboxes! Love traveling!
