CAPTIVA SCENES

I thought I would include a potpourri of shots I took during our recent visit to Captiva that didn't fit into any of the other categories.  So here goes.

Captiva doesn't have an actual "downtown," just a four-way stop sign and a few commercial establishments.  But there is a predominant "island" motif to the decor, as evidenced in the following.





One evening we ate at a restaurant by the name of Sunshine Cafe, where I noticed that the walls were graced with a couple of sun medallions.  I didn't have my camera at the time but went back the next day and got permission to get a few shots.



People seemed to be having a lot of fun painting fences on Captiva.  Here are a few.





I liked this last image the best, perhaps because of the bright colors or perhaps because of the fact that I decided not to take the shot straight on.  I thought that the decking in the lower right actually added something to the composition.

At one of the docks leading to Pine Island Sound I took a few shots of a number of kayaks for rent that had been turned upside down.




Based on their general shape and color, perhaps they should be called banana boats.
