The holiday weekend sure livened things up on Sanibel, Captiva and the causeway islands. I don't have any beach pictures for you, since the crowds helped me make up my mind to skip trips to the beach for a few days. We did make a trip across the causeway to get some groceries and drive on over to San Carlos, near the bridge to Ft Myers Beach, to a fish market. The traffic was so heavy, and backed up on San Carlos, that we nearly turned around. But, we finally made it.
You can see from the pictures that the spoil islands were super crowded and there was a lot of boat activity in the bay.
Cars with kayaks on the top, are a common sight around here.
Key West Express has a fleet of vessels that ferries passengers to Key West on a day trip or to stay as long as you like. The vessel below is the Big Kat Express.
Further back, you can see the flags on the Pieces of Eight pirate ship.
More pictures on the way back across the Sanibel Causeway, in the 'Happy Lane'.
The big news event of the week:
'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge has a new female crocodile.
