Exploring the island. The chapel is lovely and the cemetery has some very old markers. It's still a place of loves lost.

The Captiva Chapel By-The-Sea and cemetery is a peaceful almost spiritual place to visit. It seems to be untouched by time...a time machine that takes you back to a simpler day. This is truly my piece of heaven on this Earth.

This is a nice side trip.tomsee some history on Captiva. Don't overlook the Historic Captiva Cemetery and the custom of placing sea shells on the head stones. Beautiful trees and flower.
