Day 8 Wed.
While the guys threw their money at the grayhounds at the track (with very few wins), the gals headed out to Sanibel/Captiva Islands. We started at the lighthouse for some quick pics, headed down Perriwinkle Road for some shopping (I found some cute shorts, a skirt, a couple of tops and some pjs all on sale) and then on to Captiva for lunch. We had fresh, yummy food at my favorite, Key Lime Bistro and then to the beach for shelling and sun. We followed this up with more shopping then home and the pool.
We ususally have our communal supper on Thursday but Jamie, Mike, Baby Micheal and their friend, Jen, had to head back to Titusville early Thurs so we switched the supper to Wed. instead. The pic of the food should give you a good idea of the variety that everyone contributes. We sat around and watched the sunset and most hit the beds early Wed. night.
DAY 9 THURSday
Most of the day was spent pool side or floating on rafts in the pretty blue pool itself. There was a huge storm that moved through and we all scattered. Jill and Kelly, e and I braved the storm and rode it out at Smokin' Oyster Bar with beach bread and coconut shrimp. We all gathered together for a pasta supper with e and I supplying the salad. We all took nice long walks on the beach at the end of this day with a spectacular sunset (pic to follow later today). Good time is being held by all!
