On the way home today. We were up about 6:30, dressed, packed, and ate breakfast of bagels and cream cheese with coffee and cranberry juice in hotel lobby.
Great stay in Captiva....best ever weather....great birding even though there were not many shorebirds but the brown pelicans in the gulf made up for that. Shells were missing on the beach but I have enough shells at home. Enjoyed our meals at Lazy Flamingo, Sunset Grill, Sanibel Café, Jerry's, Over Easy, Doc Ford's, Timbers, and The Mad Hatter. Relaxing times at the pool and beach will be missed. Highlights of our trip were the thousands of brown pelicans in the gulf, pods of dolphins, eagles in the nest, visit from the Cullens, and visits with family.
End of 2018 Captiva trip. Safe return to home.
