My favorite niece, Elizabeth (blonde hair with purple shirt), and her good friend, Danielle, spent their spring break at Ocean’s Reach recently. A fun afternoon was spent kayaking the back bay waters of the “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge on a guided 1 1/2 hour tour with a naturalist. Tarpon Bay Explorers offers great recreation and wildlife education for families and all ages and skill levels. Just prior to their launch, we were invited to attend a free “deck talk” on manatees. During the kayak tour, my niece and her friend burned enough calories to motivate them to participate in another favorite Sanibel recreational activity–eating monster cheesburgers, fries and shakes at Cheeburger Cheeburger.
