Day 6 on Captiva

Friday morning was a bit cooler....in the 50's.  Having  a cold front moving through. Al sat on the porch but I stayed inside and worked on the computer.  I served breakfast/brunch of mushroom omelet, rye toast, and fresh strawberries inside.   I spent some time taking some photos of the eagle nest.

Around 1:30, we drove to the Island Store for supplies and liquor and to the post office to mail a card.  Back to the cottage and then off to sun and read on the beach. 

For dinner we decided it was time to eat at the Lazy Flamingo, our favorite "dive" on the island.  We went at 5:30 to miss the rush after the sun sets.  We had our choice of seats at the bar, the best place to sit in this place and we could even see the sunset from our seats.  Everyone has to order at the bar and then pick up your food when your name is called.  Sitting at the bar is more convenient since your order is served to you.

We began with a dozen ice cold fresh oysters on the half shell. Some of the best on the islands.  We shared  peel & eat shrimp with cocktail sauce and  mesquite-grilled grouper served with Caesar salad and Flamingo garlic bread.  The half order of the salad was enough to share.
