Day 18 on Captiva

Cooler weather, in the 40's and 50's, has arrived to stay in Florida for a few days but this is nothing compared to the ice and north paralyzing states of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia, etc.  Snow continues to fall in Ohio breaking records for snowfall and temperatures.  We are soooo glad to be here but hope everyone remains safe and warm in Ohio and Tennessee.

We spent inside today keeping busy reading and resting. There was rain off and on all day.  Tonight we went to Doc Ford's for dinner. We arrived about 5:30 beating the crowd....the place was packed with waiting customers when we left.

We had fresh shucked oysters on the half shell. Al dined on Panko Fried Shrimp  - Jumbo shrimp crispy fried with French fries and house cole slaw and I had Calamari Salad - lightly battered calamari tossed with mixed everglades greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, a sweet and sour vinaigrette dressing and topped with crispy wontons.   Enough salad for 2-3 dinners.
