We have been to Captiva many times but this was the first time the Chapel was open. The walls have names of all past pastors. The cemetery next to it is a must visit!

At the end of the island is a quaint small cemetery where original inhabitants of the island are buried, many of them infants. The chapel is small and still in use. People leave shells and other objects in memory of those buried here.

The cemetery joining the church right on the water's edge is very interesting. Seats to sit under trees and unlike so many other cemeteries no one touches the things that are in memory there. I have seen a hand blown ballerina on a little mirror,...More
