This is one of my favorite weekends on Sanibel Island
and Captiva Island.
|With the holidays just down the road, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island kick it off right with a two night Luminary festival. Tonight is Sanibel's turn with the entire length of Periwinkle Way lined with luminaria. It is breath-taking! All the shops on Sanibel will be open with refreshments and deals - many are offering Luminary night specials. It is fun for me because it really gets you into the holiday spirit - the decorations are great.
Tomorrow night is Captiva Island's night. While smaller, it is more intimate and just as lovely. The shops will be open as well and the refreshments flowing. The tree at Tween Waters is on and greeting all who come! If you have the chance, maybe not this year, the first weekend in December is our luminary festival and it really shouldn't be missed!
