With waters as calm as the Gulf, we do not do much surfing on Sanibel. But we do have sandcastles, and we do have romantic lighting. Click like if you think 2 out of 3 ain't bad 🙂
Little Sanibel has huge achievements. Its library is the best in the state, its school system has received an A rating, and we all know about the Island's shelling 🙂 Now Charity Navigator, the must trusted evaluator of charities, has awarded SCCF its prestigious 4-star rating for excellence. Way to go, SCCF!
The Secret of the Sea : Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
"Ah! what pleasant visions haunt me
As I gaze upon the sea!
All the old romantic legends,
All my dreams, come back to me."

We hate to rub it in, but it is 70 degrees and sunny right now going up to 80 after noon. Perfect day to play a game of tennis at Blind Pass Condominiums. Click like if your temps are cooler than these!
As the cold and snow settle into the northern states we find more and more people arriving in Florida and trying to stay warm. Whether you’re planning a vacation for a week or you’re coming for the cold winter months, take a look at the Sanibel Island lodging we have to offer.
Our condominiums are fully furnished and equipped right down to the convenience of a washer and dryer in your unit. That’s just something you won’t have when you opt for a hotel as your Sanibel Island lodging. And you won’t have a kitchen either.
The kitchens are equipped with full size appliances like you’d have at home. We provide everything you’d need to prepare your meals while having the option of dining in.

Sanibel has inspired poems, books, photographs and songs…and now a soap. This lovely bar is called Sanibel Sunset and is made by a small company based in Naples. Great gift idea!
Another group of people who regularly are attracted to Sanibel and Captiva are astronomers and amateur stargazers. Click like if you enjoy the starry, starry nights on Sanibel!
"Butterflies are not insects,' Captain John Sterling said soberly. 'They are self-propelled flowers."

There are dozens of Gulf Fritillary Butterflies, like this one, gracing the Island now. But we think they look more like Autumn leaves than flowers. Click like if you agree.
