Day 41 Captiva

It rained all day  but we made the best of the day by packing for our return home. It was time to pack anyway since we leave on least we did not waste a day of sunshine. We did some laundry too.  This was a  stormy tropical rain ....had a real downpour all day. 
We went to Mike and Helene's to view the sunset from their home on the gulf and did not expect to see one. But the clouds moved aside and we saw a lovely sunset.
We went to Sanibel Steakhouse for dinner.  We remember when this was a restaurant called "Fish Anyway You Wish" many years ago.  No, I did not make that up.

Mike says Sanibel Steakhouse has the best oysters on the half shell so we had to give them a try and they were the best!  Al ordered lamb chops, two double thick with cinnamon fig demi-glaze served with house vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. Mike ordered grilled filet medallions with mushroom demi-glaze. Helene had blackened ahi served rare with Wakame and Asaian style vegetables, finished with a Soy Wasabi sauce. I chose Chilean sea bass Parmesan crusted  served with wild mushroom risotto, grilled asparagus and dill cream sauce.  We finished dinner by sharing a chocolate lava cake.  This was a fun evening with great friends and great food.
