2 weeks of bliss!

5 of 5
Sanibel Island is EVERYTHING it is cracked up to be! The wildlife, the restaurants, the shelling, the town environmental regulation, the sunsets — even the tropical storms (Alberto) are exceptional. My wife and I have never had a two week vacation together without the family, and this was just what the doctor ordered: our 4th wedding anniversary. The only drag was the 14 hour drive from the mountains of NC, and the terrible disrepair of the Interstate system. I went to the J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge three times! My wife and I hiked the beaches collecting shells daily, and built up quite a vocabulary. Who knew about Junonia! There are SO MANY fabulous restaurants on the island — including a stroll across the Island Inn quad to Traditions (I wish they had a cookbook!). Reading 10-12 Randy Wayne White's novels heightened the culinary experience at Doc Ford's Rum Bar & Grille. Whatever I ate or drank at night, I worked off having fun during the day. Kiel, the beach umbrella man, was so congenial, he made what a college student would consider a boring job into a melting pot of conviviality for beach goers. Already Sanibel dreaming of anniversary #5!!!
