As a very young child, I started going to the Castaway Cottages. I have lots and lots of memories. I’ll tell you about 2 memories that stick out. First one is that I learned how to swim in the ocean with my grandpa. We were far our into the ocean, my grandma was at the shore yelling at my grandpa to bring me back to shore. Second one is that I’m on a post card. My mom, dad and I were walking down the beach and was approached by a gentleman and his little girl. The man asked my parents if he could take a picture of me and his little girl. And last memory I have is the sad one is, we put my grandma’s ashes in the ocean. I have meant to come back, but there’s always something that have prevented me from coming back. I love Sanibel Island and wish I could afford to live there.
