Apr. 6 (Day 96) - Comedy of Errors

We headed off at 9:30am this morning for Sanibel Island.  We were hoping to go sea kayaking but traffic was pretty bad and it took over an hour to get there.  By that time there was at least an hour wait.  We decided to head to the beach instead, but it took almost another hour to find a beach with parking.  We did see some really neat houses on Captiva Island but were so glad to get out of the car.

When we made it to the beach it was actually more sandy then we expected and we were really bummed.  Mark and I walked down the beach and found where there were a lot more shells thankfully.  I walked down with Allie and Sarah and found a bunch more, while the rest went to eat.  We were all in a much better mood, but decided to head home before getting stuck in traffic headed off the island.

There was more swimming in the house pool, a great dinner made by Laura, and Mark took a bunch of the teens putt-putt golfing (Allie won).  What started off so badly ended up being a pretty good day.

I took this picture right before the Sanibel toll booth.  You can just see the bird in his nest.
