Loved the Island!

Perfect location! The range light was our welcome beacon whenever we returned to base day or dark.
We loved the island, so much that we decided we would live here if we won the lottery.
The Boca Grande Beach House perfectly suited our needs, comfortable, bright place to stay, with all the amenities needed to enjoy our stay, cozy and close to everything.
We thoroughly explored the island, the lighthouse, the beautiful beaches, the sunset waters with dolphins cruising, the old railway trestle (now a fishing pier), the shops downtown, the library, even the community center where we attended a lecture on florida postcards. I took many photos of the cluttered and fascinating “maritime museum” at Widdens Marina, a funky pace but full of historical treasures, a real look at what Boca Grande used to be. So much to see and do on such a small island. White sand beaches, the most beautiful I can imagine. My wife collected shells on the pristine beaches and this morning before we head back to snow and cold in MI, we must figure out where to find room to pack them.
