Day 8 on Captiva

Brrrrrr! Brrrrr! It was cold here at 40ish this morning but the sun is shining bright. Suppose to drop even colder tonight. We put on our long pants and long sleeves with warm jackets and headed to the Farmer's Market near the Sanibel Library.  We shopped for fresh produce buying tomatoes, red onions, avocados, green beans,  and corn and also got some scallops, shrimp, kielbasa,  and biscotti. The flower stall had a beautiful assortment of cut flowers and lot of roses.  Al bought me a beautiful bouquet of roses, hydrangeas, lilies, and more.

Then we ate brunch at the Sanibel Cafe which was very crowded with a 30 minute wait for a table but well worth the wait. Al ordered the quiche of the day (as the waitress said as she served it "Real men do eat quiche") and I ordered eggs Benedict which was delicious.  I think this is the bestest place for breakfast on the islands!
Driving home, we made a stop at Blind Pass and watched the surfers from the beach. Not many people here and the ones on the beach are bundled up in coats. Not many birds are  even braving the cold.

Dinner tonight was cooked by Chef Al who prepared seared scallops with a butter bomb.....beautifully carmelized and perfectly cooked.  This was served with fresh corn on the cob and salad. Great dinner!
