 Wednesday, January 27: Sanibel and Captiva

Is it the sun … the food … the shelling? Yes, yes and yes. There are lots of reasons why New Englanders opt to skip winter for a while and head to the southwest Florida islands of Sanibel and Captiva. And Ted Reinstein plans to experience every one. He breaks out his best Sanibel stoop in search of a kitten’s paw on Bowman Beach, rides in a cow car with a transplanted Northeasterner, meets the woman many say saved Captiva from overdevelopment, and drops into an indescribable restaurant named The Bubble Room.

With the Gulf of Mexico on one side and San Carlos Bay on the other,Sanibel and Captiva are surrounded by sparkling blue water.
