I slept late and Al was up early. In the afternoon after a brunch of bagels and scrambled eggs, we shopped at Periwinkle Shops. Not much changed in stores. I bought jacket, tank, pants, necklace, and earrings at Chico's. Stopped at Timber's for grouper. Home about 5:30....went out for sunset but no clouds.....came in before set. For dinner we prepared Panko Crusted Grouper, arugula salad with lemon vinaigrette dressing and Parmesan, and rosemary garlic potatoes. Selected red Santa Cristina Antinori and white Villa Antinori wines for dinner.
Al walked about 3 miles early this morning. While crossing the bridge at Blind Pass he made some video of the work going on there. Sanibel and Captiva are again clearing the sand under the bridge to reopen the flow of water between the gulf and bay. Then the island of Captiva will be a true island again. The video on the top shows work on the gulf side and the bottom shows the bay side. The Milville's home can be seen to the far end of the row of homes on the bayside.
