WE’RE STILL HERE…but we got a little wet.

September is the height of the Hurricane Season, and 2020 was no exception.  A tropical depression going across Florida and was going to be a guaranteed rainmaker for the weekend of September 12th.  Then we were surprised...

Bailey's General store sign

We just wanted to recognize Bailey’s General Store’s efforts to combat COVID-19 and protect their customers and island residents.  Even before the City of Sanibel mandated masks in all indoor public places, Bailey’s began enforcing its right to require masks inside their store.  If you...
