If you are ever on Captiva Island...



If you are ever on Captiva/Sanibel...
This could go on and on and on and on. It truly is the island of my dreams! I have had the luxury of staying at my sister's island retreat, Amarelo Sol for the past few days. It is here that my 90+ Mom and two of my sisters and I have hung out here and had a grand time!!

Captiva is like no other place in Florida, it is more Caribbean than Floridian. We have been coming here at least three times a year for the past 30 years. This is where I hope to hang my hat during my golden years!

So one thing you must do if you come here is go to the Green Flash Restaurant for lunch. You must sit out on the veranda- the view across the bay is amazing, the birds are great entertainment, and the waitress is super!!!

Have the Sanibel Salad, it has smoked salmon, artichokes,asparagus,olives, great greens and much more. But the kicker is the homemade Herb Dressing, it is wonderful!

All this week I will continue with Sanibel/Captiva.

Someday, I will get back to the Greece Trip Pic's!!!!

These are pictures from the Veranda at the Green Flash. Soak in the sunshine and enjoy the Snowy Egret, a.k.a. our waitress. She made a "heck of a waitress"- tips were cheap just a little left over salmon.

  1. Hi!Wisconsin caught my eye since my daughter lived there for 10 yrs. It is a BEAUTIFUL place. The lake is so beautiful and much like the Jersey Shore! Amy lived in N Milwaukee while RJ was at Marquette and they lived in an Episcopal Rectory for free and kept an eye on the church. Then they moved to Kenosha, another great town. She taught English at Greendale HS (Home of Taste of Home Magazine)& college level English at Trinity.

    Now she lives closer in the east w hubby & 3 kids. Sanibel and Captiva are on my To Do List of places to go!!! My family all go to the Plantation on Amelia Island but winters are not hot!I also have a bro who has a place in the Keys...I love summer...but enjoy celebrating all the holidays so everytime of yr is the best!

    Love your pics! Cheers, Jennifer
