Day 12 on Captiva

This morn was very foggy...could see fog rolling. No beach today. Al walked. Breakfast of bacon, eggs, grapefruit supremes, and toast of that great bread from Bailey's. Played on computer. Margarethe, Ella, and Ella's sister Carol came over to make some pics of bedroom for renter. Drove down to 'Tween Waters to check out rates---much higher than here. Al checked out Post Office at end of island.

Dinner at Twilight Cafe that has moved to the former Nutmeg House then Riviera. Not much changed since Riviera except interior is more casual decor and no liquor license. Similar layout. We shared mixed baby greens salad with toasted almonds and warm fried goat cheese croutons(very good) in a citrus vinaigrette.....waiter did not split salad...just brought extra plate. Al ordered New Zealand rack of lamb with mashed potatoes made with garlic and red pepper and a currant and sweet onion demi glace and grilled broccoli (almost black). I had salmon (but not blackened as on menu) topped with spinach and corn pesto accompanied by cajun risotto with crawfish meat, andouille sausage, sweet corn, and cheese. Good but did not make our must list.

Was a foggy drive back home.
