As I drove over the causeway, I could feel the stress melting away! This was our route to the Sanibel Island Beach Resort, a wonderful spot on a great shelling beach.

Since they built it...$6 toll on Ft Myers mainland side...naturally no toll when you leave... Before such they had a ferry to the island

I'm not sure how you would miss it since you can't go over the bridge without paying. There were two lines, one for the Sun Pass and the other for paying cash.
