Day 20 on Captiva

Early this morning, Al insisted that we go to Fort Myers to Best Buy to have my broken laptop diagnosed.  (I have already mentioned what we found out in an earlier post.)   After coffee and pastries, we took off about 10:00 for the hour drive to Best Buy even though  our appointment with Geek Squad was not until later. 

 After Randy told us the screen was cracked and would be expensive to replace and may not even work.  But they could transfer the files on the old hard drive to a new one.   So we went shopping for a new laptop and I bought the HP Envy x360.   We left the old and new computer for a free transfer with the Geek Squad....a 24-48 hours wait to be ready for pickup.  I will be out of commission doing blogging for a few days.

 We stopped for lunch  about 2:00 at the Lighthouse Waterfront Restaurant  at Port Sanibel Marina not for from the causeway in Fort Myers.  This a beautiful setting right on the water.

Al ordered a Corned Beef Rueben with Corned Beef, Swiss, Sour Kraut, Tomato Remoulade on rye with fried potatoes.   This was ha huge sandwich...Al only ate half.   I had Chicken Salad with Grapes served on a Buttered Croissant, Sprouts, LTO, Pickle, and fruit.  Both were delicious and perfect for lunch with a beautiful view of the marina that Al snapped with his phone camera.

Heading back to the islands, traffic was bumper to bumper leaving Sanibel all the way over the causeway  just as it was this morning but in the opposite direction.   Lucky for us we on the moving side.  A quick stop at Jerry's to pick up snapper for a meal at home.   Arrived back at the cottage after 4:00.  I was not hungry this evening because of our big, late lunch and decided not to cook the snapper tonight.   Al was nice enough to eat the rest of his Reuben for his dinner which I grilled to warm.   Think we were both a bit tired after the trip to Best Buy.
