Know about this?
For 6 out of our 7 day stay, we experienced afternoon thunderstorms. These storms usually ended within an hour, the longest lasted about 2 hours. You could see the clouds building each afternoon, and if you're on the water, you can see exactly where the rain is, and which direction it is heading!
No-seeums do see you....
These pesky little bastards are most active in early mornings and dusk and they will find you. Although humans really don't do anything to *** them off in the first place, the reaction to the bite of this 1/8th inch or less sand fly is a itch that won't go away for days. Skin-so-soft or something with genetics altering deet will deter them so that later you don't become homocidial during the night.
Beware of snow
On the sign put at the entrance of the Visitors Center :
"Please wipe snow from shoes before entering building".
Fortunatly, when we went there the snow was not yet felt. We had forgoten our snow boots and we would be embarassed if there was a layer of snow.
It is illegal to collect LIVE SHELLS on any of Sanibel's beaches. There are hundreds of visitors scouring the beaches at all hours. Please respect their laws. I did see a few live species right at the water line, the tulip shell and apple murex and sure hoped that the shell collectors with their mesh bags abided by the laws. Shown are the islands of Sanibel & Captiva.
Watch for Bandits!
This racoon jumped up out of hole in trash can on our way into a local Sanibel Restaurant. Scared me to death!

This is a sign on the grounds of our hotel. It warned of alligators. We never saw any or got bit by any. Now the mosquitoes, that was a different story...

Beware of turtles
Pay attention to the turtles which are crossing the road. Above all, when they are running.
Also, think : a turtle can hide an other one .
