Day 4 on Captiva

Another restful morning on the porch with coffee while thinking about the inches of snow at home.  I took a walk to the beach which was very quiet.  I was alone with no birds or people.  And no shells either.
After lunch of sandwiches on the porch, we spent time at the beach....... a bit breezy.  And then came back to the pool for drinks with homemade salsa and chips.

Dinner tonight at Doc Ford's in Captiva.   We shared a dozen Fresh Gulf oysters, shucked to order and served chilled with fresh lemon and cocktail sauce.  I ordered  Calamari Salad-lightly battered calamari tossed with mixed Everglades greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, a sweet and sour vinaigrette dressing and topped with crispy wontons.  I always order this salad.  Al had Mussels steamed in a broth of roasted garlic, shallots, Roma tomatoes, fresh basil, white zinfandel and a hint of cream and butter.  We shared our orders and really enjoyed our dinner.  I must find the recipe for the mussels was scrumptious!
