Arrival at Captiva

Best Western Ocala
We were slow getting started this am....a we ate a bite at the breakfast buffet which was very crowded. Al made a bagel, egg, sausage sandwich with cream cheese...he was proud that he thought of  making this. We left shortly after 9am for our final leg of our trip south. We stopped in Ft. Myers at Publix to shop for provisions before heading to the island.  Arrived about 4pm at the rental home.  Margarethe had remodeled the kitchen which has an improved layout and all new cabinets. She did a great job with the design.
Finally I got unpacked and organized.  Had some sushi from Publix with gin and tonics.  Headed to Lazy Flamingo for oysters on the half shell with mesquite ribs, fries, and grilled grouper served with Caesar salad and Texas toast.  We shared our meals so we each had some of all the dishes. We are happy to have arrived safe and sound after the 21 hours drive over 3 days. Weather is beautiful and warm!!
