Cool morning for Florida! Glad we packed clothes to layer. Al sat on porch with computer but was too cool for me to stay there long. Had almond pastries with coffee. Just "chilled out" (literally) this am. Had lunch of soup and sandwiches then did drive thru DDWR to check out. Was low tide so lot of birds feeding....nothing out of the usual. Drove down to South Seas end...lot of traffic and lot of building going on. The 2 huge Roman homes ( Roberts Transportation) still being built. Their offices at corner of Andy Rosse are now finished. Checked out new home across from Renee's....6 bedrooms and 7 baths...huge! Bright blue roof stands out. We Took a quick walk to beach but too windy to stay. Reopening pass between bay and gulf....looks like a long process. Renee has lift using to clean out trees and coconuts. Stayed in for dinner: Porterhouse steak, sauteed mushrooms, baked potatoes, salad, and Key Lime pie. Quiet night at home.
We having been visiting Captiva Island for a number of years and have found it to be a most fun and relaxing place. We started coming one week in February and one week in September many years ago and have added more weeks since we retired. We now come for 6 weeks at a time.
