Today we headed to the next island – Captiva. Not much in the way of shells, but like everything here, beautiful beaches. Check out our family selfie.

Samantha and I have made it since Saturday (today is Wed) without it. Thank goodness for beach naps and beach beers đŸ˜‰

On a more serious note, I have noticed a bunch of man made nests on both islands. Today we saw one of the nests on a pole at Captiva….complete with a bird nesting in it! I snapped a pic of it then consulted my bird ID guide when we got home. Check out this beauty.


She is an Osprey, a hawk. And, a quick Google search helped me learn why there is a need for man made nests. Click here to read the article.

Lastly, check out today’s sunset.


Do we have to go home?
