Day 35 on Captiva

Today began overcast and cloudy but the sun started to come out about 10:00 AM and it turned out to be another great day at the beach.....I have forgot to mention that we have been seeing dolphins the last few days......first we have seen since our first week here. 
Tonight we had dinner at Traditions- 6:30 Reservations.  The sun set at 6:30 but was covered by black clouds this evening.

Joe McCormick and Marvilla Marzan were the entertainers for the evening with the sounds of Broadway, Latin hits and all styles of popular dance music.  We have been enjoying Joe's music since we began coming to the island some 30 years now.  

We have followed Andrea, the host at Traditions, through out the years as he moved from Bellinis on Captiva to Riviera on gulf Drive to Dolce Vita on Periwinkle and now at Traditions on Gulf Drive.  For dinner we started with Beef Carpaccio with Arugula, Reggiano, Capers,  and EVOO.   Al ordered the Veal Special...medallions in a rich reduction sauce served with Portobello mushroom, new potatoes, broccolini, and spinach.   I had  Naturel Veal Artichoke with lemon sauce served with broccoli and  dauphinoise  potatoes.  We enjoyed dining with great music.
