On Thursday, we had our annual 4th of July party of the “Sanibel” causeway. This has been a tradition of ours for years, for the bay waters offer a little something for everyone.
Although the presence of Lee County was thick, and when upon the beach I felt much like a visitor, the water temperature was perfect and the fishing was superb.
The weather was typical for the 4th (it rained a few times), but the squalls moved through quickly (I swam in the bay throughout), and by “fireworks time” (dark) everyone was dry and happy! It was the finest fireworks display I can remember from Sanibel. Well done!
