Florida Vacation

Wednesday April 5th, 2017

Sanibel Island
Rode bikes to the light house, and under the bridge.

We rode the bikes out to the lighthouse and inspected the lighthouse and the beach.

The lighthouse from the beach
Looking across the bay, with the telephoto lens. Probably on Fort Myers Beach. On Tuesday, it was very clear and you could see way down the coast.
We had lunch at Chuck and Wendys (aka Sanibel Seafood Grille). Brad got the recommendation from one of the ladies at the bike rental place. The food was very good, and the prices very reasonable.

Drove out to Ding Darling reserve and walked through the visitor center, then drove through the reserve itself. Not impressed in general but we did see an Osprey fairly close, eating a large fish.  Brad spotted the osprey up in a tree, eating a fish. It was so close to the trail that it was easily overlooked. You had to look way up high in order to see it.

Here's a video of the osprey. Unfortunately the zoom in close goes out of focus.
