Day 1 on Captiva

Sunday morning is the day for the Farmer's Market on Sanibel Island.  After coffee and pastries and time on the internet,  we headed out about 10:00 to shop the market.  The number of vendors has increased over last year and more prepared foods are included.  We purchased some tomatoes, radishes, red pepper, corn, and fresh mussels. We then had brunch at the Sanibel Cafe at the Tahitian Gardens.
Al enjoyed the bagel and lox platter and I had shrimp salad with fruit and toasted muffin.  We visited some of the shops and then headed back to Captiva.
Drinks on the porch with salsa and toast crisps were served prior to game time.  Dinner tonight was steamed mussels with Italian sauce served over linguine with  romaine salad. Wine served was Santa Christina Chianti. We watched the Super Bowl with the New York Giants winning over the Patriots. I fell asleep during the 4th quarter but woke in time to see  the ending.
Today was overcast but in high 70's.  Rained late evening.
