Friday Photos

I went overseas today for some grocery shopping. As I went over the causeway, I noticed the water was very calm. There were a couple of windsurfers and their sails didn't have much wind in them and they almost looked like they were standing still. I don't know how they were staying upright. There were a good number of folks out fishing today, from the causeway islands. And I have to add that there was a huge number of snowbirds grocery shopping and the traffic has really picked up on the island.

Here are more photos that I promised, of the Christmas decorations at Tween Waters on Captiva. This evening they had the lighting ceremony complete with fireworks. The weather is perfect for that. I will put some photos online soon when I can take some at night.
























This one is for you Gayle! :-) Your Santa in a palm tree.

Nice tree Santa chose! You've inspired me to head out to the North Pole and take some photos for you all! :)

Hi toot...

We're heading to Sanibel between Christmas and New Years with our 3 teenagers and my mother in law...might you recommend a new years eve activity? I was wondering if there's a festival or a city area that the locals frequent on new years eve...thanks!

We were at Tweenies for Thanksgiving too. Also set in the room with the ice sculpture. I'm not sure I would recognize you from your picture.

I think their Santa in the palm tree has to be the best decoration ever.

Chris, I think it's really pretty too. I've always been partial to all green lights on most things, like they have.

Gayle, I would love seeing your North Pole pictures.

June,What time were you there? I hope you enjoyed your dinner as much as we did.

Jacque, I'm not sure yet who is doing what for New Year's Eve on Sanibel. I do know that there will be a party at the Crow's Nest at Tween Waters, on Captiva. They always have a very good band that plays a large variety of music. There is a dance floor there and a full bar. There is a cover charge for that party. They provide hats, other party favors and a champagne toast at mid-night.I believe they also have a nice dinner menu at the Old Captiva House. For the party there, you have to be over 21. I'll check on a couple other places that could have something special planned. If you want to send your email address I'll let you know. tootie_sanibel@yahoo.com
