It's summer time in South Florida - the snowbirds have long gone back to points north, it's blazing hot outside, and I'm in need of a rest. This means its time for a beach break in Sanibel Island, one of my favorite places where all you need is a bike, bathing suit and tons of sunscreen.
While Sanibel is super busy during the winter months, in the summer it has the feel of a sleepy beach town. The bike path lined streets and beautiful beaches are left for the locals to enjoy. We try to spend at least a few days here each summer.
Small condominium complexes line the beaches of Sanibel, many of which are available for weekly rentals. We rented a nice two bedroom condo within a two minute walk to the beach. Four of us went on this particular trip... me, my husband, his sister and her husband. Our five days on the beach followed a familiar rhythm....
• Wake up early
• Drive over to Baily's Market for coffee and breakfast
• Take a long bike ride along the many bike paths and routes on the island
• BBQ lunch
• Dominos or Beach Time
• Watch sunset
• Dinner time
If this is your idea of a relaxing vacation, then Sanibel is definitely for you. After a few days of relaxing here, I'm ready to face real-life again!
