Sanibel Island

Gail and I spent a wonderful day visiting historical Sanibel Island, Florida. We have had several people tell us over the years how wonderful this little island is but we have never visited it until today. We loaded our bikes in the back of the truck and took off for the adventure. The island is known best for shelling. The beach is literally covered with shells and the pickins are easy if you get there early. (we didn't) Really a nice visit for us.
We visited Fort Meyers on our way back to our campsite. Henry Ford and Thomas Edison had winter homes here and we rode by there quaint rather small homes. On the way back we stopped at Five Brothers Hamburgers. We had read that it was rated #1 hamburger in the nation at one time and thought we would see for ourselves. WOW! Gail could barely get her mouth around her "small" burger and I had no chance with my regular one. Great taste also. I give it a 10!!!
Across from out RV park is a large shell factory place. When Gail took a picture of the sign she cut off the s and the Y and it says hell factor! We have been laughing about it ever since. I also had my pic taken with John Wayne although Gail says it does not look like him. What do you think Mom?
We leave tomorrow morning for Avon Park for our first real Sojourn.
