Captiva Island

For my birthday and July 4th weekend, Kelly surprised me with a trip to Captiva Island. Our first day we went to breakfast and found the local 4th of July parade and celebration with entertainment, kids rides and a BBQ. It was something straight out of small town America. Awesome.

Captiva is known for its shells. So we took walks on the beach...

Some of us liked them more than others

The weather was overcast and a little rainy, which turned out to be great, not too hot and a more relaxing atmosphere. But we did get a little time at the beach!

We woke Addy up to go watch fireworks on the beach
But she warmed right up and started waving at all the people and fireworks.

After only 3 days, we found ourselves totally in love with the Captiva/Sanibel area. A great little get away for the 3 of us. We hope to go back many many more times.
