Cabbage Key

Our final, final stop before heading home was to Fort Myers to see Papa’s parents. It gave us a chance to see them after being away for three months as well as celebrate Papa’s birthday…which is today!

On the evening of the 16th we set up our rig at San Carlos RV Resort, a campground we’ve been to before and loved and is probably the most-convenient and affordable family-friendly RV park in the area. The next day we met Mama’s in-laws at the dock on Captiva Island to board a boat bound for Cabbage Key. The boat ride was long and slow, but we were kept entertained by the many dolphins that followed alongside as we floated across the water.

Once we arrived to the island we dined at the only restaurant there (Cabbage Key Inn and Restaurant), walked the sandy paths, and climbed the water tower for a view of the area. The entire area was very pretty.

Earlier today — Papa’s birthday! — we checked out from the RV park and met Papa’s parents at the local Bass Pro to have a delicious lunch at Islamorada Fish Company.

It was a nice brief visit with his parents and he had a nice birthday…

…but now we’re actually heading home.
