The weather was perfect for a day of island hopping. Our trip started with a relaxing ride from Captiva to the Tarpon Lodge on Pine island. The Tarpon Lodge has excellent food and excellent hospitality. After a delightful lunch we traveled to the north end of Cayo Costa where we visited the ranger station and went for a quick look at the pine forest and Gulf beach. Then it was off on another boat ride to secret spot 14. We walked and talked and found many treasures from the sea. Nancy also found her favorite shell, the shark eye.
