    Will I buy: A) a paradise home on Upper Capativa Island, Florida  on one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world with views of unbelieveable sunsets or B) a red Tibetan mastiff dog named Hong Dong (Big Splash)?  The Chinese business man did indeed purchase the pooch, Big Splash, in March of 2011 for 1.5 million dollars.  For those of you who would have selected A, the house (and rescued an unwanted pet) here are more details of the nearly paradise home off Captiva, Florida. Accessible by boat and your very own boat dock.  It's time to settle in and write that novel, paint that painting and fish those fish.  2066 sq. ft. on .67 acres of beach property; 3 BR and 2 BA, Central heat and air, lots of marble, Gulf of Mexico frontage     I love cats and dogs and am truly happy that Hong ...

North Captiva Island is beautiful bridgeless island off the coast of SW Florida located just one island north of sister islands Sanibel and Captiva.  Despite the close proximity to those two well-known destinations, North Captiva Island is barely known by even the longtime residents that live in the surrounding region.  The island consists of about 300 homes, 300 vacant lots, a 350 acre state park preserve, miles of gorgeous powdery beaches, four restaurants, and a small resort ( with pools, tennis courts, tropical pool bar, kayaks, playground, etc).  The close knit community is very friendly - as are the transient guests who frequently vacation here.  Since the island can only be accessed by boat, there are no cars...  so everyone scoots around on nice quiet electric golf carts.  Desp...

One of the greatest contemporary artist has joined the Angels... Milton Robert "Bob" Rauschenberg passed at his Captiva home last night, May 12, 2008. Born Milton Rauschenberg in 1925 in Port Arthur, Texas, and raised a Christian fundamentalist, Rauschenberg wanted to be a minister but gave it up because his church banned dancing. "I was considered slow," he once said "While my classmates were reading their textbooks, I drew in the margins." He was drafted into the U.S. Navy during World War II and knew little about art until a chance visit to an art museum where he saw his first painting at age 18. He drew portraits of his fellow sailors for them to send home. When his time in the service was up, Rauschenberg used the GI. Bill to pay his tuition at art school. Milton Rauschenberg chang...

  Visiting Captive Island anytime soon? If you are, you might want to visit The Green Flash for lunch or dinner. Easy to locate, The Green Flash is located on Captiva's only main road, Captive Drive. Sitting on the bay side of the island with gorgeous views of the intracoastal waterway of the Pine Island Sound. You can watch boats go by, fish jump and loads of beautiful water birds fishing for their own meals. The Green Flash is named after the "flash" which people sometimes see just as the sun sets into the water. The only problem here is that you will never be able to see the sun set while sitting in this restaurant, but the views none the less are great.The eating area of the restaurant is elevated for better views of the waterway and the entire rear of the facilities of one giant wi...

   One of the most unusual restaurants that I've ever been in is The Bubble Room on Captiva Island in Lee County, Florida. The Bubble Room can be found on Captiva Drive, the only main road on Captiva Island. The waiters / waitresses call themselves "Bubble Scouts" and dress similar to "boy couts".  The food here is excellent, but the deserts are to die for. If you order a piece of cake, be prepared to have enough to last you a few days .... LITERALLY.    Many people that I know will order a piece of cake "to go" knowing that they will be able to snack on it during their vacation while on the island. The Bubble Room is a great place to take the kids. The walls, tables and ceilings are covered with all types of vintage toys. It is actually quite enjoyable to be looking around the room as ...
