Sunday Snapshot: Captiva Island

As soon as the cold weather starts to settle here in Boston, I immediately start thinking of warmer destinations. I relive past warm weather trips where coats, gloves and tights were not part of my wardrobe. Last night, I had my first moment. On our way home from a Friendsgiving (a Thanksgiving with friends) in Avon, CT, it began to snow. This first dusting of the year meant two things a) it is going to be a long winter and b) bring on that warm weather destination dreaming.

Today’s Sunday Snapshot is from Captiva Island, Florida where I spent a blissful six days last February. This trip was especially enjoyable because of timing. I left just hours before Nor’Easter Nemo dumped almost 25 inches of snow on Boston. So while family and friends were snowed in, Max and I were taking a sunset cruise through Captiva Island. This is one of my favorite photos as it captures the beautiful reds, oranges and yellows of the sunset just as a fellow catamaran was passing by.

To all of you experiencing the cold weather now, I hope this offers you a little reprieve!

  2. Thanks, Lauren! I’m jealous of your warmer weather in southern California. I’m already planning where I can go to escape it!

  3. Beautiful capture. I love those warm tones. 🙂
    Is Captiva near to Sanibel? I was briefly in the Naples area a few years ago.

    • Thank you! Yes, Captiva and Sanibel islands are connected by a bridge. The Naples area is beautiful also!

  5. Hi Bridget!
    I found your blog when this Captiva post came up as a “related article” when I was typing my own post with a summery pic for everybody who is fed up with this winter. I linked to it here–your post is in the section at the bottom: I loved Captiva as well–visited it the February before you, I think! Looking forward to reading more from you!

    • Thank you so much for stopping by and linking to my picture, Joy! Captiva is one of the most beautiful places in Florida I have ever been, glad to find someone who feels the same. This time last year I was still there and I am kicking myself for not making a return trip this year. I love the other photos you have included! Hopefully we see start seeing some sunshine soon 🙂
