Sunset and shelling

When we lived in Michigan many years ago we used to spend holidays in Captiva Island,FL,”one of the islands that is considered best in the world for shelling. The islands geography of lying east and west rather than north and south, as most islands, allows Captiva and its sister islands to catch abundant sea shells from the Gulf of Mexico”-http://www.captivaisland.com/shelling.html

and for “breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.

Our friends and old neighbors from Michigan rented a condo at Bonita Springs, FL for the winter and invited us to come. We came and stayed with them for 10 days. Mrs. Abstract and I  returned home Thursday before the snowstorm hit the northeast.The photos are our memento of our return to Captiva and the Mucky Duck.

If there are no photos

Today Cheri and I and a couple friends met with another friend who was with 2 of her friends at Punta Gorda, FL and had lunch together at Porto Bello Restaurant at Latitudes in Burnt Store Marina.

We passed by the Manatee Park in Ft. Myers and watched manatees warmed themselves in the river.

Afterwards we visited Captiva Island, watched a beautiful sunset and had dinner at the Mucky Duck. 

All in the space of 11 hours and the carpets were not completely dry when we returned home.
