Santa in the Sky! at the Tween Waters Inn, Captiva, Florida

As promised this past Ruby Tuesday, here’s the “Santa Series” from the Tween Waters Inn, Captiva Island, Southwest Florida. It was a gorgeous, blue-sky Thanksgiving Day, and I very much enjoyed seeing “Tweenies” all gussied up it its Christmas finery. Hope you enjoy!

Old Captiva House is the restaurant at the Inn. The Crow’s Nest is more of a bar/lounge atmosphere, and they sometimes have live music on the weekends.

Santa has climbed a palm tree in order to get a better view of the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico. Down low in the photo, between the palms, you can see a dot. That dot is a para-sailor. I think I need to try that!

Santa shields his eyes against the afternoon sun to gaze calmly down upon a small knot of concerned citizens who have gathered at the foot of the palm tree to beg him to “come down, Santa – come down!”. I can just tell from the look on his face, he’s got absolutely NO intention of coming down any time soon! Why would he? It’s a great view!

In this photo, if you click through to the bigger version on Flickr, you can see the infamous “Tweenie-Cam” between the two front hooves of the last reindeer on the left. It’s mounted on the chimney. Wanna see it from the other end? Click below and enjoy!

RED STUFF from the Tween Waters Inn, Captiva Island, Florida
(a Ruby Tuesday post)

I guess we are officially in the season where RED STUFF abounds.  Yes, it’s Christmas time, and the decorations are going up rapidly all over the place.  Here are some shots taken on Thanksgiving Day last week at the Tween Waters Inn on Captiva Island in Southwest Florida.

SNOWMEN er, PEOPLE
There were a couple of festive snowmen on the path from the parking lot to the restaurant.  Amazingly, they seem impervious to the Florida sunshine, and they do not melt! 😉

Thanksgiving Dinner at the Old Captiva House

To those of you in the United States, hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and may your turkey be golden and moist!  I’ll be driving out to the islands today to have dinner with friends at a restaurant called The Old Captiva House, which is at the Tween Waters Inn.  I’m a little excited because I’ve never eaten there before, so this should be new and fun.  Will be sure to mobile blog a little while I’m out there!
