Sunset View standing on the sand between the two existing bridge spans!
Sanibel Island Florida has been a part of my life for over 20 years! Being a past owner/vacationer on the Island, I have seen the Island change over the years. June 28th 2007 marked the last day the drawbridge was opened opened of the last time. I used to be able to see in the distance, the sailboats going toward the bride from my balcony on my condo at lighthouse Point ! Please Don't get me wrong, I always complained on waiting for the drawbridge when the traffic backed up on the bridge! But I must admit, the view on the bridge with the boats, people fishing and Pelicans flying by will not be enjoyed as well from the taller bridge span replacing the old drawbridge. There was something to be said about the view that made entering Sanibel Island special. As a Realtor, I meet and talk to so many people that live, work and play on Sanibel island. I bet if you asked them about the new bridge change? You might be surprised the amount of people that will tell you they miss the bridge that was there so long that made you stop look and enjoy the great lifestyle! Sometimes we take for granted living, working and playing here in southwest Florida. If your looking to buy, sell or an investment on Sanibel Island?
