Help please, traveling friends

Once again I am back, seeking assistance from my favorite people.

It's cold in Mayberry. My barberette says there is no point to cold if you can't have snow, so with so much wisdom from the mouths of babes, I have decided to take matters into my own hands.

We're leaving, but not for long.

To celebrate our nuptuals I have booked room and board in Sanibel Island, Fla. from Jan 24-31.

We have never been there. Generally, we head to Key West, but Saniibel was muy cheaper and two days less driving.

So, is there anything to do there? Any don't misses? Any must avoids?

Thanks once again.

Sanibel is a wonderful place. Shelling is the #1 activity. There is also an outlet mall. Henry Ford & Thomas Edison homes are available for tours in Fort Myers. There is a gambling boat cruise leaving from Fort Myers every evening. Naples is not too far and has wonderful shopping and restaurants just off 41. Have a great trip.

You must take the shuttle boat over to Cabbage Key for lunch or dinner. It is truly Old Florida and great fun...You will enjoy it so! Also, if you have a boat handy or make friends with boat "people"...go to Boca Grande. It is a great little village on an island. You will be so near so YOU MUST GO!!!! Wishes to you both for a marvelous visit to FL.

Tina and Al got married in Captiva which is right next to Sanibel. I remember thinking at the time that you would love it there. If you get to Captiva check visit the Bubble Room restaurant. I highly recommend it.

Enjoy! I've never been there, but it's a favorite of one of my friends (seems as though everyone here has "their place" at the beach, and once they find it, they just keep going back).

Thanks to all. You're the best advisors ever. I'll report back to let you know how things have fared.

Final question on this subject gang: I suspect SI is more residential than touristy. Is the style Palm Beach or more anywhere USA in the spring.

I don't mind appearing the rube, but others inmy party do.

Thanks again.
