Sanibel & Captiva Islands

We finally were able to vacation down in Sanibel and Captiva Islands.  It was so beautiful.  I didn’t want to leave and wish we could go back already.  We found so many seashells we have never found before, the water was gorgeous, the weather was perfect, the people were friendly.  It is definitely the place to go if you’re a nature lover. We did a lot of fun stuff while we were there:

Visited the Shell Museum

Kayaked in Tarpon Bay

rented bikes and biked around Sanibel

visited the Lighthouse park

went to the Nature Preserve and Trail

watched the sun set on Captiva

visited the Sanibel historical museum and village

visited the historic Captiva cemetery and Chapel by the Sea

and much more.

We have spent the last week recording all the nature we saw in our nature journals.  The kids also read a short history of Sanibel Island. I can’t even say we took a week off of school because we learned so much.
