Live Trip R

Arrived on Sanibel this am just before 10 am. Bfast at Sanibel Cafe on way to Captiva.

Checked into Tween waters, friendly staff. Room wasnt ready as early as promised but hey, sitting by the pool is just fine. Room is comfortable, and view is great (have a gulf view room).

Drink at the pool bar and a swim then check in. Head to the beach. HH at Crows nest, walk to Mucky Duck for sundowners and an appy, now over to Captiva House fro dinner.

Very hot and humid for this time of year. Not really complaining though, as could be worse lol.

I won 3rd place at the races, had dinner in crows nest.

Will head out to breakfast soon as the OH has a business call to make and we have no signal in our room so he will have to hunt one down.

Looks like the promised storms will hold off til we leave this afternoon.

You may have to head down to Sanibel for that signal.

Grab some fudge at Baileys on your way out, sooooo good!

Safe travels!

Missed the fudge tip before we let lol.

Had lunch at the Green Flash. Good, view nice.

Back to the pool at TW for a few hours then we left the island sadly. We liked out stay here, and will be back at some point I am sure.

We hit GCTC for happy hour and a movie, before driving home and arriving just before midnight.
