Sanibel Island Stories and Tips

Shelling on Captiva

We woke up early to the sound of the surf, made some coffee and walked 70 feet out of our building to the surf and did some shelling. We met Gene Hubbard who was of great help to us in spotting shells.

We drove 10 miles back to Sanibel and visited swanky strip mall, Tahitian Gardens at 2007 Periwinkle Way on Sanibel and splurged on four Sanibel T-shirts! Had a nice lunch there at The Sanibel Cafe. The tables were glass tops above a "box" containing shells spray painted white. I think it was a project from Shell Craft 101.

I grilled steaks at sunset for dinner. Shortly after I began grilling it began to drizzle which developed into a light rain. I had to keep an eye out for Henritta, the resident blue Heron who has the reputation of snatching any food off the grill! One resident told of bringing down from Philadelphia some very expensive specially aged steaks that Henritta made off with in the blink of eye when the guest came in to get some sauce.
