Sanibel Island…

Today we drove about 20 miles over to Sanibel and Captiva Islands.

Sanibel is know as a premiere shell hunting spot and in fact has one of the top shell museums in the country, the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum.

Before visiting the Shell Museum we walked down one of the local beaches so Jan could find some shells.

It’s not as pretty as Gulf Shores, but it is nice.

Coming home we tried out a new Mexican restaurant we had seen advertised, called Iguana Mia. We were really starting to miss Houston Tex-Mex and this place filled the void. Much recommended.

More tomorrow…
