This is yet another reason why I love living in paradise. We dress up for the holidays in shorts and flip flops and decorate golf carts as our floats for the Christmas parade. It’s cute, quirky and very Captiva.
John (AKA Elvis) and Denice Beggs of Royal Shell Real Estate celebrated with a “Blue Christmas”…
These gals were the fan favorites in their Naughty and Nice Pink Flamingo golf cart…
Can you believe there is a golf cart inside Kingfisher Vacations‘ Mighty Reindeer?
Look how adorable!
VIP Real Estate turned their whole golf cart into Santa himself…
Did you know that Rudolph The Red Nose Flamingo lives in Captiva?
…or did you know that snow flakes could get this big on Captiva?
I’m sure its no surprise there are mermaids on Captiva…
Captiva Kayak Company was one of the big winners of the best float. Cute!
For me, one of the best parts of the parade was before it even started. As we pulled the Junonia Jalopy into the lineup, we met iLoveShelling buddies Diane and Steve from Connecticut. It was so nice to meet yall! Hope you find lots of treasure this week.
The oh-so-cute Raccoon Captiva Critter Christmas float was on the move…
Les Pendleton of American Realty Of Captiva (they made the Raccoon float above!) filmed the whole parade. So you get to see it too! Happy Holidays from the Captiva Holiday Village Golf Cart Parade, thanks to Les!
While we were having all this fun at the parade, Donnie Benton was busy shelling Blind Pass and this is what he found.
Nice, huh? But look at this SCOTCH BONNET!
And he found this freakish FIGHTING CONCH. Very cool.
Over on West Gulf Drive, Gail and Alicia found a MacDaddy 12 inch HORSE CONCH. And it was Gail’s birthday…that’s a great birthday gift from the sea! What a weekend.
