Thanks to Spirit Airlines’ low fares, we were able to surprise our kids with a weekend trip to the ocean! We decided on Fort Myers Beach, Florida and we lucked out because it happened to be the weekend of the Shell Festival! Captiva and Sanibel Islands are the best places to go shelling in Fort Myers Beach! We stayed at the Diamondhead Beach Resort and could, literally, walk right out on to the beach and into the ocean. It was amazing! Especially for a couple of kids that hadn’t visited the ocean before!The sands were so white and the water was so clear! I have never seen anything like that, in person, in my whole life!We got to walk out to a beautiful sand bar, but we had to be very careful not to step on all of the amazing shells in the water in front of the sand bar.Once we got onto the sandbar, we were amazed to see all of the conch moving! The were coming right out of the sand and moving along with their big conch foot!My kids had such and amazing time experiencing the ocean and shelling in Fort Myers Beach, Florida! It was truly a memory-making experience that we will never forget!
I can’t wait to share even more about our weekend getaway with you guys, so keep your eyes out for more Florida posts including where we stayed and our sunset dolphin tour!
