High Point complex in Ft. Myers with Legacy Harbor Marina in foreground
Sanibel Island Lighthouse from the Gulfside beach

The beach is covered with shells of all kinds and with lots of folks looking for them.

Gumbo at the Sanibel Marina Dock Today was a beautiful day to be out on the water calm, cool and sunny. We left Legacy Harbor about 9AM for a half mile run to the Ft Myers Municipal Yacht Harbor where we took on 160 gallons of diesel. It is also a nice marina but the docks at Legacy are the newer floating type which we like better. After fueling up we left for the short trip down the Caloosahatchee to Sanibel Island. The nice weather brought out lots of boaters most good but two of the big fast ones gave us huge wakes which rearranged things in some of the cabinets luckily nothing was broken.
We arrived at the Sanibel Marina just past noon, it is a small marina, family owned and run they keep everything very neat. We got everything secure and the shorepower connected then walked to the beach. The beach here is famous for shelling and rightly so shells are all over and lots of people looking for them, we found some nice ones also.
After the long walk to the beach we had an early dinner at the Marina restaurant.
We may be here a while, the weather is forecast to be terrible for the next few days and the next leg of the trip is in the Gulf so we want good weather for that.
