Hello Everyone, I hope y’all are having a great Christmas Eve. It’s a beautiful 75 degrees here in Southwest Florida. If you follow me on Instagram you already know this, but I headed to Captiva Island yesterday to lounge by the Gulf in my favorite beach spot.
I didn’t even touch the water (I knew it was too cold) but it was a perfect beach day. I even feel a little bit tanner. I think Kenny Chesney’s All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan sums up my Christmas list perfectly.
Later in the afternoon, my friend joined me and we stayed and watched the sunset like tourists.
Tourists flock back to the beach starting around 45 minutes before sunset to watch the sun dip into the Gulf. If you watch closely, you might be able to catch a green flash but I’ve never seen one. I will be visiting Sanibel and Captiva a couple more times before I leave to visit Miami and celebrate NYE with some friends. I’m so thankful for such great weather.
Coastal Living magazine has a great feature on Sanibel Island in their December issue. You should check it out to read more about my hometown beaches. I actually brought the issue with me for some beach reading and it was fun to read about Sanibel on Sanibel.
