Sanibel and Captiva Islands, and Fort Myers Beach

Sky is pretty every night, Shawn says, because the water reflects the light...something that doesn't happen back home...we had another great day, hopping from beach, to beach, to beach.   There are a lot of snow birds here and we know why.   We like the similarities we find, but also delight in the differences.  They use seashells in place of peet gravel for lots of landscaping chores, the wildlife is different - but the really important part?  Prices for food and drink are nearly the same Iowa.  We love you, Florida!

Santibel Island - beautiful island with a busy two-lane road the only option (next time we'll rent bikes).  If you ever need to work out anything in your life, take a cold beverage to Bowman's Beach - beautiful white sands with few people and zero's kinda just you and the Gulf.

Captiva Island - like Sanibel, and a great place for shelling, if you are into that.  Quaint shops.

Fort Myers Beach - populated, murky water, cheap beers, great stretch of flat walking on clean, white sands.
