Cabbage Key

Cabbage Key
To mark the end of 2016, the entire SDP editorial staff took a day trip to Cabbage Key, a small island in the Gulf of Mexico.  Easiest way for us non-boat owners to get there is via charter boat from Pineland, just north of Ft. Myers.

Cabbage Key The Key is straight out and to the left.  We couldn't have asked for better conditions!  Calm seas and  light sweater weather.

Cabbage Key It's a short ride...only about 10 minutes.

Enough time, though, to take in the sights...and, start to relax.

 (The SDP Editor in Chief looks quite relaxed, don't you think?)

Cabbage Key Lovely view looking back from the island! (The rooftops to the right are located on a different key.)  

Cabbage Key
Cabbage Key is teeny tiny.   No paved roads....and cars are not allowed.  About a dozen cottages are here, a short nature trail to hike, and a water tower to walk up (for a beautiful panoramic view).  The main attraction, though, is this: the Cabbage Key restaurant! Good food...cold beverages...served outside in paradise. Can't beat it! Not a bad way to usher out 2016.

It does look lovely and peaceful. No cars sounds great to me!

What a beautiful little mini-getaway. You do look relaxed and happy. And I like your pelican shot.

I've spent many happy days on Sanibel, but have never been to Cabbage Key. Looks like perfect weather for your trip. You look especially good and relaxed.

BTW, I'm back on Blogger. My experiment with Weebly.com didn't work out very well. :)

Nice trip. Friends have told me about Cabbage Key and Useppa, but so far I haven't made it to either. Got to have something to look forward to . . .
