Rest of the story…

A great roll out and beautiful paddle along the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. How about the handmade wood kayak.

The next day an off island ride for me to Estero Point and a run for the wife.

A great Tween Waters Inn dinner at Old Captiva Room. Best Florida seafood and sunsets in historic old Florida.

Next day hike in the Bailey tract with the wife and a stop at a botanical nursery.

Mess with an alligator…lose a leg!

The next day I took the two island ride from Sanibel to Captiva and back with the wife running again.

Great week. Peace out. Tres

Off/On island ride-44 miles

My wife had a meeting this morning that allowed me to get a nice morning ride in so, off Sanibel Island via the causeway to Ft. Myers.

The ride went on a great bike path along Summerlin Rd. I went on a side road to San Carlos Bay Bunche Beach Preserve. Cool kayak put in.

Time to go back to the island.

Island time. Peace out Tres

Sanibel-Captive bike ride-31 miles.

We went down the beautiful beach where we are staying. Great sunset yesterday.

Saw a critical mass ride take off in Sanibel last night. Very cool lights.

It was decided that we would do a 30 miler up to Captiva and back.

Went to The Chapel by the Sea in Captiva.

We stopped at Jensen’s Cottages and Bait shop.

We rode to the end of Captiva.

Some pictures from the ride home.

Another day on the beach. Peace out Tres

The road to Sanibel

The road to Sanibel went a rather round about way via Matlacha! The wife was ready fairly quickly and away we went. Nice drive to Matlacha Community Park. Great put in at park.

We paddled out and I was able to show Mariella where I stayed in January. The canal was full of pelicans and the Lormalove (spelling) gallery.

We headed out from Porpoise Island Point. Ripping day with amazing visibility in the water. Stingrays, fish, jellyfish and all kinds of birds.

A great seafood lunch of grouper and shrimp from the Blue Dog. Fabulous with a waterfront picnic table.

In Sanibel and ready for the beach. Family values bike ride on the trail tomorrow. Peace out Tres
