Captiva Island 2

1587 20 Lisa Julia David Fla copy 2This was also the Florida vacation that was so cold, it snowed and I had to wear my winter jacket on the beach. Naturally everyone turned on their electric heaters and the power on the island went out. The kids sleep with a light on. Lisa was taking steroids because of no-seeums (bug) bites. We were in different rooms each with a kid. Around 3AM I awoke in the complete pitch dark to heard Lisa softly moan, “Oh my God. I’m blind (from the meds/bites).” I didn’t realize at the time that she was having an idiosyncratic reaction to the steroids. She blames me to this day for making her crazy.
