    I asked the innkeeper where I could get good coffee on the island. She replied, "The Bean, everyone goes there...7-11 has real good coffee too." hmm, not encouraging :/
    Still the bean is 'ok' it is a nice place to relax. The coffee was ok, I'm guessing a bit better than 7-11.

    You can't watch sunset without seeing some lucky couple tying the knot on the beach. Both Sanibel and Captiva Islands are incredibly beautiful, romantic and easily accesible....the perfect place for a beach wedding. Whether you prefer tuxes and gowns, or Hawaiian shirts and shorts, Sanibel and Captiva are the most memorable destination for a beach wedding. Your guests will love you for saying "I Do" in a place that captures the imagination as well as the heart.

    For more ideas on planning the perfect wedding, proposal, vow renewal or anniversary trip, visit www.BestOfSanibelCaptiva.com and click on the Romance category, as well as the link to the Dreamers and Doers forum.

    I was married there myself 16 years ago. There's nothing in the world like a beach portrait at sunset, of your first moments as a married couple......
