Snapshots from Captiva Island, Florida

Enjoyed another great family trip to Captiva this month. Here’s a shot of one of the many gorgeous sunsets we enjoyed during our stay. Unlike last year’s Winter Break when we had an unseasonably cold, rainy streak , the weather this year was sunny, warm, and absolutely perfect.

Captiva Island, off the coast of Ft. Myers in Florida, is one of our favorite places in the world. It has beautiful beaches, casual restaurants with excellent food, and a laid-back vibe that my family and I love. It’s also well-known for its seashelling opportunities, although I confess, I have boxes of collected shells sitting in a closet here that we brought home to turn into craft projects that will probably never materialize. Ah well…

<–This is RC Otters, a casual eatery that has something for everyone on the menu. Our favorites are Gator bites (yes, as in alligator) and the Oyster Po’Boy sandwich. The burgers are great, too.

These are some examples of the food you’ll find at Tween Waters Inn, a hotel that has a terrific restaurant with windows that offer spectacular views of the sunset. Also the ideal place to watch holiday fireworks. On the left was a roasted duck dish, and on the right is the famous Key Lime Pie.
