Day 19 on Captiva

Today began early as usual with our coffee and pastries.  I skipped my walk on the beach and worked on a couple of cards and Al enjoyed his time on the porch.  For lunch I made Matzo Ball soup using Manischewitz  Mix which was a nice change on a coolish day.

We drove up to Chadwick Square Shops for a look around I purchased some Sea Glass earrings at the Beach Life.

We then made a stop at the Island Store for some provisions and headed back to the house.
It was a bit windy for the beach so we spent some time at the dock on the bay.   A young pelican was resting on the dock as we approached and did not budge from his spot on the dock.

He sat quietly while we photographed these birds:

And he was still there when we left the dock.
We watched the sunset around 6:20ish and Al made these shots:

I videod the last few seconds of the setting sun.

For dinner I prepared Shrimp with Red Peppers, Mushrooms, and Garlic and served over a bed of Grits made with Mozzarella  Cheese.  This went nicely with Arugula Salad and glasses of wine.
