  1. Looks like you had a great vacation. I was at Bowman Beach last March and loved it. Did you find any good sea shells? Glad you enjoyed!

    • At Bowman’s Beach my attention was caught by a large starfish that looked quite fresh. I don’t know if it was alive, but since I had been warned at other beaches not to haul off starfish, alive or dead, I left it be.

  2. I completely enjoyed YOUR vacation – Thanks!

  3. That is quite close to where I spend my vacations when I make it to the US, not far from where my mom is. Too bad I wasn’t there when you were!

  4. These are very welcome photos on morning when it’s 4 degrees here! Our friends stay on Sanibel every winter so we’ve experienced Ding Darling and the beaches–I’m so glad you had the chance to go!

    • Over 20 years ago we spent time on Captiva Island, so it was a shock to see some of the changes. Personally, I think it’s nuts to drive through Ding Darling on Wildlife Drive. Talk about an oxymoron. But I was glad to see so many people biking. If you build a bike path they will come.

I Love to Hear From You
