Yes it does rain on Captiva! It rained and thundered most of the night and we woke to rain on Thursday morning and it continued sporadically during the day. The gray clouds hung overhead all the day so we spent our time inside except for a quick drive through Ding Darling but the birds were all hunkered in their shelters.
The morning began with coffee and pastries. I posted some cards and Al spent time on his computer. Time flew quickly and it was soon time for lunch of soup and sandwiches enjoyed on the porch. Tonight Al watched the races at Northfield on his computer and managed to win about $300 with his bets. I prepared Sausage and Shrimp Jambalaya for dinner which we ate as we watched the races.
Even though it was a "Washed Out" day, it was better than a snow day at home.

I love how he captured the full moon, a rather eerie scene.
