I really wanted to check out a new cafe in Ft. Myers for today's City Daily Photo theme: 'Scene at a Coffee House'. Unfortunately, time did not permit. But, as I dashed out of Starbucks yesterday with a latte in hand to fuel me for the drive back to Sarasota, I thought, 'Well, I can get a quick shot here for theme day…' And, voila! It's not exactly what I had in mind…but, I'm happy to be able to participate in Theme Day!
As these folks enjoyed a quiet respite outside Starbucks in downtown Ft. Myers reading their electronic devices, man's best friend in the foreground stole the show. Her name is Pipi. While she has an intense stare in this shot, I can assure you she's a sweetheart! She was content at the outdoor cafe, greeting strangers politely as they passed by, while keeping a friendly eye on a neighboring cocker spaniel. I'm told Pipi was rescued as a puppy four years ago after being abandoned alongside a road in Alabama. She seems very good natured and gentle. And, she must have good sea legs, too….because her owner mentioned they arrived in Ft. Myers via sailboat. How about that?! It's common to see dogs at outdoor coffee houses nowadays, and I always enjoy hearing their stories.
