Happy Halloween

As I mentioned in my last post, our Saturday night was spent getting ready for the party at the Tween Waters Inn. My cousins, Bill and Karen, and I had planned on heading over to this party last year, but were overcome by a sun/beach coma and never made it.  They had heard the stories of grander and we vowed to go to the party next year.  Now, accompanied with 4 other friends, it seemed the best time to take advantage.  Me, Dave, Kristen, Adam, Mike, Tuck and my aforementioned cousins, Karen and Bill, were headed out to the Inn decked out in pretty great costumes, right?!

The ladies, aka Mermaid, St Pauly's Girl and Lady Firefighter

We utilized the island "DD" service.  They were prompt picking us up at 8:45pm. It took us about 30 minutes to get there because our location is on the very tip of Sanibel Island and the Tween Waters Inn is on the other end of Captiva Island.  Because there is only really one road, with speed limits of 25-35 mph, you can imagine why it takes so long to travel there despite the relatively short distance.

After paying our $15 cover, we walked into the most fabulous costume party.  We decided to start off with "test tube" shots that they were selling for $3 a pop.  Seemed like a good investment for me to make for my friends :)

After this, there was lots and lots of costume watching and dancing.  Here are a few of the highlights.  I will be sure to come to this party again if I am in Sanibel at the same time.
