On Thursday evening, Carman and I had dinner at TerraNuestra, a great Italian restaurant, on the beach. Friday, after a Walmart stop, we toured Sanibel Island. It had an old lighthouse, but the weather was foggy, so the pictures are so-so. Since it was warm, we still went to the pool and Tiki bar. We watched some fools see how close they could get to the park alligator. The plant with the candy-looking red seeds is a cardboard palm. On Saturday we had lunch at the Yucatan Bar before we met Sandy and Linda. After hugs and changing for the beach, we had a great time catching up. The water was only 60 degrees, and Mr. Buffalo even thought it was too cold to do much more than wade. Sandy and Joe cooked us a great spaghetti dinner. The highlight was the greens and salad to die for. On Sunday, since the weather was great, we did the refuge on Sanibel. It was disappointing in that we see more wildlife at the RV park than we did there. That evening we had a great dinner at the Parrot Key. Carman had a mango margarita, and I bought some special sauce that they had for fish. Monday morning it was raining like crazy, so I stayed until Tuesday morning, and then headed back up to Blueberry Hill in Bushnell.
