My family and I have been coming to Sanibel since I was about 6 months old and we would always stay at the west wind. For a week over spring break we would call the island our home and not a second was ever wasted on it. From the early morning walks on the beach to sitting in the sand watching the sun set without a care in the world. At the end of the day it’s the simplicity of it that makes it so worth coming back too. A little piece of paradise for everyone to share. The important thing is that we keep these memories close to us because the sad truth is that the island will never look the same. I have great faith in everyone on the island that they will restore it to its original beauty. Im hoping and praying for everyone right now that you are safe and can have a quick recovery. I am excited to see everyone back on the island soon.
