2012 was our first visit to the island and we instantly fell in love. It was the most relaxing vacation we have taken as a family. Our children now 24 and 20 were just 14 and 10 at the time. We have visited other gulf beaches but nothing compared to the beauty and friendliness of Sanibel/Captiva.
Pictures “catching the sunset” from the causeway and our cottage so close we didn’t even need to take towels or sunscreen on the beach. We could run back as needed.
The devastation has broken our hearts for the people of Sanibel and Florida. We will return to celebrate the rebuilding of this beautiful island.
