Sanibel Island

Sanibel is and Island off the west coast of Florida on the Gulf of Mexico. It's a relaxing island town. There's not much nightlife here but it is a good place to go to get away from it all and enjoy the tropical weather.

walk the beach.

Sanibel is famous for the quality of shells. I'm not a shell type of guy, but a walk on the beach is good for the soul.

relax, it's an island

this hammock sure looked tempting. Sadly I never got the chance to relax in it. oh well, next time...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:I relaxing place
  • Cons:everything in my room was broken >:(
  • In a nutshell:A great place to get away from it all.

    Thanks for the great tips. Boy, that lighthouse really isn't so pretty. Not sure if it looks like a water tower, or a cell phone tower.

    I think you should add "helmet" to your packing list tips for the coconuts! I love the pictures! Seeing you look so happy makes me smile! :)

    You're right--that's not so much a lighthouse as it is a supported utility pole. "I'm not a shell type of guy"? Hahahaha! What does that even mean?
