……instead of sitting in traffic.  I tried to make my way to the Lighthouse to see what was there but I got stuck in traffic so I didn’t make it.  This is the busiest week of the year so I should have stayed away from Periwinkle Way. Cutting over to East Gulf, Middle Gulf and West Gulf is the best way to get around on Sanibel. There were lots of people at Blind Pass on Captiva still finding shells in the huge pile that has been building every week. The parking lot on the Captiva side was full and there were very few spaces on the Sanibel side so you had to get lucky. I would get there early if you want to spend some time at Blind Pass tomorrow just to get a parking space. Plan your day around the traffic this week by working around the traffic on Periwinkle Way which is bad in the morning around 8 to 10ish but really bad in the afternoon from 3 to 6.

I heard the Lighthouse was still really good for finding cool stuff and I’m sure it’s going to be good this weekend too since it’s a full moon on New Years’s Eve. I hope this helps!
