The rain has stopped and it is sunny today. We had early coffee and drove to DDWR to take advantage of the sunny day. We then went into Sanibel for brunch at The Sanibel Cafe....Al had bagel with lox and I had tomato slices with tuna salad, fruit,and muffin. This is a great restaurant for breakfast and lunch. Shopped the stores here at Tahitian Gardens. New place, Adventures in Paradise, has beautiful clothes, books, and cigars but also sells boating excursions and adventures. Carries Orvis, Patagonia, Exofficio, etc. Al bought jacket and shirt for me for Valentine's. We then went to Jerry's for provisions for Valentine's dinner. Also went to H2O Outfitters where we bought Al's Valentine gift, shirt in a print with wine bottles, which we had seen earlier and he loved it. Saw Wanda who has managed several stores we have shopped over the years. Has been with H2O outfitters for the past few years. Traffic was very heavy on Sanibel because of the Arts and Crafts Show at the Community Center. Ended up going to Lazy Flamingo for dinner. Shared oysters on the half shell, caeser salad and ribs with fries. Was not that busy for a Sat night but we did go early...before 6:00.
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.
