Day 2 on Captiva 2015

 Hello to those who are following our Captiva adventures! 
This morning we began an early day with coffee and bear claws from the Publix bakery.  We then went to the Farmer's Market in Sanibel where we purchased tomatoes, onions, radishes, avocados, fresh Mozzarella cheese, fresh cut flowers, etc  from the selection of fresh produce and other goodies.  The market was crowded with shoppers and dogs.

We then went to one of our favorites spots for brunch... Sanibel Café.  Al had Smoked salmon and bagel with cream cheese, served with tomatoes, red onions and capers. I had the Tuna Salad served over Romaine lettuce with sliced tomato, melon, fruit, and a muffin (Coconut and Chocolate chip) of the day.  It was about a 15 minute wait but well worth it. More about the restaurant and their song here.

Back at the house we spent a restful afternoon with gin and tonics on the porch at cocktail hour.
For dinner, Al grilled steak and I prepared baked potatoes and arugula salad with tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and homemade lemon vinaigrette and served with hot rolls and wine.

Tonight was the NFL Super Bowl XLIX from University of Phoenix Stadium with the New England Patriots winning over the Seattle Seahawks which Al watched on TV but I fell asleep watching Downton Abbey.
