Captiva Beach

A beautiful day to spend some time at the Captiva Island Beach. So we loaded up the beach chairs, sunscreen, and shelling items and off we went to the beach yesterday.


On the way there is some of the prettiest Palm Trees, (in my opinion). We have noticed at least 3 species of Palm Trees in this area. The photo above shows the ones I like the best.

Wilma and I have been to the Captiva Island Beach several times, and we still get the thrill of the beach, the shells, and the surf.

Angel and Brooke rate this beach there first choice, although Brooke seemed to think the Englewood Beach a close tie to this one.


One thing this beach is known for is it’s shells. There never is any shortage of shells. A “Sheller's” dream come true.

Catching some sunshine

Loads of shells

After 3 hours on the beach it was time to leave and we headed out to get some sea food for an early dinner. Brooke wanted to try Crab legs. We headed for the local Red Lobster and she sampled Nana's and Angel’s Crab legs. Conclusion: She doesn’t like crab legs. Sick smile

Today we are lounging around the RV Park’s pool and taking it easy enjoying the low 80’s weather. Angel and Brooke will be on a flight home at 7am tomorrow morning. That means getting up around 3:45am to make the hour drive to the airport to get them there on time. They are really going to miss the warm weather here as when they get off the plane it will only be in the mid teen’s and will be going down to a low of around 7F. Monday night. Burr…

We have had a great time with Angel and Brooke and will miss them when they leave.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.


  1. We will definitely be researching Captiva Island Beach. I'm sure you have so enjoyed your time with family. What nice memories all of you have made. All of Angel's and Brooke's friends will be admiring their great tans!!

  2. Wow! I don't think I've ever seen a beach with so many shells! I could lose hours/days playing there!

  3. We had so much fun sad to come back to this frigid weather :(
