Invasions of tourists are episodic in nature, the high cost of local hotels serves as a small economic barrier. Most practical Americans come for 1 day, stroll along the picturesque beaches and take the necessary number of photos, returning to the mainland in the evening, to inexpensive coastal restaurants and luxurious casinos.

The islands of Sanibel and Captiva in Florida are separated by a small shallow channel called Blind Pass, which sweeps sand during heavy storms. The amazing coastline changes from storm to storm and is characterized by rare inconstancy and unchanging beauty.

Take a stroll along the islands promenade. This will leave you with unusual memories due to the color and quality of the sand.

The most beautiful seashell beaches are paid. For half an hour on the beach you have to shell out a dollar, at least. That is, crowds of happy hippies collecting shells for sale for days are not observed. For those who want to relax and take a walk along the beach with shells, the fee is quite moderate.

Pelicans on the islands

Pelicans in Florida are many. These smart, strong, cheeky and charming birds firmly occupy the niche of ravens and cats in all sea cities. But on the reserved islands you can meet the cutest, most charming and naive pelicans of teenagers, gullible and grateful for the delicious fish that fishermen and tourists share with them.

It makes no sense to give pelicans a loaf — birds have a marine diet without complex carbohydrates.
