We just returned ftrom our 1st vacation on Sanibel Island and enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed at Sanibel Arms in an ocean front unit (Bldg. G) and the unit was spotless and had a great view. After shelling Eleuthera & Cat Island for 10 years it was a completely different experience. We were fortunate enough to be there for the full moon and low tide shelling.(flashlights) We ate at Doc Ford's twice and it was outstanding,especially the calamari and the Kaliks. If you did eat outdoors the mosquitoes were as big as some of the appetizers. We finally moved indoors. Rented a car from Sensible Car rentals which worked out perfect with them picking us up at the airport. Right now we're planning a return trip to Sanibel next Thanksgiving. Thanks to you all who provided us with info which made everything go a lot smoother.
