After church (what an excellent preacher) we decided to take to the beach to revisit the islands of Sanibel and Captiva. We had been there before once with Sprint's President's Club and once with our girls. The sky's were clear but it was very windy and not a good beach day. We drove to Captiva (the furthest island) and had lunch on the water at the Green Flash. We had to do a little creative parking for the big honkin' dually but we got it. Then we drove back to Sanibel and stopped at the J.N.Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. They had an excellent visitor's center and a five mile drive through the refuge. The truck is really running fine now and we got 17.9 mpg without the camper. That's the best ever. Enjoy the pics.
