Day 16 on Captiva

Today began early with coffee and then a drive to the Farmer's market at 8:30ish.  We parked in the lot across from the Community Center which was a short walk to the Market and across the street to the Arts and Crafts Fair.   Arriving early we avoided the lines of traffic and had no problem parking.  We shopped for produce, cheese, and flowers....even bought some hummus dips after tasting.


 We then walked over to the 32nd Annual Arts and Crafts Show  where over 112 vendors were set up in outdoor booths around the Sanibel Community House. 


 Even though we did not buy anything , we enjoyed the exhibits
of photographs, watercolors, oil paintings, sculptures, jewelry and many more crafts.   There seemed to be more artists here this year than last year.  The weather was just perfect...sunny and warm.

After viewing all the booths, we went next door to the Island Cow for breakfast.  Surprisingly they were not busy and we were immediately seated.  Al had Bagel and Lox  platter that had so much lettuce that we took home enough for dinner salads.  The platter was served with mini bagels....not the best Bagel and Lox on the island.  I had one egg with "spuds", fresh fruit and toast.



 We spent the afternoon on the beach enjoying the warmth of the sand and the sound of the waves.

For dinner we prepared Pan-Roasted Triple Tail with lemon butter sauce served with fried corn and red peppers, asparagus, and  green salad (from breakfast).   We had Triple Tail for the first time last year...it is a very meaty fish and very good.
