When we arrived to the Allison Hagerup Beach on Captiva, we were prepared to pay the $2.00 per hour fee to park. Unfortunately, I didn’t take my time to read the screen thoroughly and inserted $20.00 and chose the two hour option, before reading the “No change provided” sign on the screen. The irony of this is that I had just chastised my husband a few days earlier for not picking the correct number of hours for our stay.
We took a couple of long walks and I was even able to convince Sherry to brave the chilly water and enter up to her waist.
We timed it just right and arrived to Mucky Ducks at 4:30pm to snag a table on the patio and add our name on the list to be seated for dinner by the windows for the sunset at 5:00pm.
We split the Seafood Platter and a slice of Key Lime Pie!!
We’re getting used to seeing palm trees and Christmas trees next to each other!
What can I say!!
Sherry leaves tomorrow and then my friend April arrives on Thursday. Let’s see how much longer I can find new, fun and interesting things to do here!!
Located 10-15 minutes from Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island has lots of fun things to do! After paying a rather pricey toll charge of $6.00, we devoured a freshly caught grouper sandwich at Grandma Dots restaurant.
Located at a marina, it’s cute and casual!
Driving just a few minutes down the main drag, we arrived at the lighthouse beach and paid $4.00 for two hours of beach time! Today it was warmer…almost 80 degrees…so we took a dip in the ice cold ocean and went for a long walk on the beach!
These paddleboarders were fun to photograph!
I have to give credit to my husband for this photo…
Here’s the bridge we crossed to go back to Ft. Myers/Cape Coral…
Not all beaches are created equal…but I love them all!!
