Sunset Southern Cayo Costa

Sunset Southern Cayo Costa

This past week I stayed on Cayo Costa Island and traveled by boat to work. The first sunset was most amazing. I took numerous photos in Captiva Pass. I drifted with the tide and watched the different light shadow the island. Camping on the island is always enjoyable and full of adventure. Early in the week I took a long walk off a short dock and discovered my I -phone didn’t swim as well as I did in my jeans, ugg boots, and fleece. I am still trying to recover emails and phone numbers. I managed to get all my charters in and enjoyed the sunsets, moonrise’s, quick swims, and rain showers in the early morning.

    The pictures you took at Cayo Costa Island are gorgeous as always. It's so fun getting to see the things you see. It's so beautiful.
    Sorry to hear you took a "swim"!
