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.
