Mark your calendars for January 25th at the Community House for a unique wine-tasting event. The wine tasting will feature wines from the William Hill Estate Winery. The winery is located overlooking the Napa Valley in California and has been producing extraordinary wine since 1976. The vineyard was developed by vintner and grower William Hill and crafts Chardonnay and Bordeaux varietal wines.

With nearly 40 years of experience growing grapes in California, they have used their expertise, knowledge and instinct to deliver extraordinary fruit that showcases the distinctive characteristics of the Napa Valley. Bailey’s is thrilled to host this exciting event which will include complementary food pairings for each wine. Wines for tasting will include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon labels. There is no charge to attend this event. To rsvp, email cjohnson@bailey’s-sanibel.com. Wine will be available for purchase.

Wines One with Tom Uhler is a three-week series being held at the Community House at 7 pm on February 2nd, 9th and 23rd. Host Tom Uhler will present the basics of tasting, enjoying and appreciating all kinds of wines. Guests will taste over 20 classic wines along with food pairings provided by Sanibel Catering Company by Bailey’s. Reservations for this series should be made before January 28th.

Periwinkle Park Bird Shows!

There is much to do on Sanibel for our visitors, including exploring our famous shelling beaches and the world-renowned “Ding” Darling Wildlife Preserve. A little known but very enjoyable event is the bird shows Libby Baird presents at Periwinkle Park. Baird is a seasonal visitor from Canada and has been taking care of these particular birds for 25 years. She presents informative talks about the parrots who make Periwinkle Park their home, starting at 10 am Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Baird begins giving her shows early November and concludes them early May.

Baird and her husband Dave began caring for the birds during their stays at Periwinkle Park. Feeding them and cleaning their cages led to Libby’s famous shows which began in 1996 when she retired from teaching. Around Christmas she can have up to 100 people attend.

The variety of birds at Periwinkle Park includes budgies, cockatoos, sun conures, macaws and an African grey. In addition to the shows, she also sells pictures, DVD’s, postcards and other memorabilia. The proceeds go toward toys and vet bills.

Make sure to take in one of Libby’s shows the next time you visit Sanibel. You will learn lots about some of Sanibel’s colorful residents!

The 2018 Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar

Looking for a last-minute gift for someone on your list? The beautiful shots taken on Sanibel and Captiva that appear in this calendar will bring the islands to you year-round, regardless of the place you call home.

The calendar for 2018 marks the 30th edition and the cover photo, featuring a pod of white pelicans, was taken by esteemed nature photographer Al Hoffaker.

This calendar is exclusively sold in Southwest Florida, and is unique not only for its spectacular images, but also for its written accompaniment to the pictures that describes nesting habits, breeding and feeding habits, range, habitat, status and health.

The publishing company also makes a $1,000 donation every fall to a regional environmental organization. This year’s donation went to the “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

When Jim Fowler started this publishing venture 30 years ago, his goal was to capture what Sanibel and Captiva are all about – nature.

The Sanibel-Captiva Nature Calendar portrays the beautiful natural surroundings of Sanibel and Captiva seen through the lens of superbly talented photographers. Images show green herons, black skimmers, yellow-crowned night herons, snowy egrets, wood storks and roseate spoonbills, among others.

Enjoy a bit of the wonder of Sanibel and Captiva every day through this beautiful calendar. To order online, go to www.sancapcalendar.com. The cost is $14.95, plus $2.00 for shipping. Order today for a bit of Sanibel and Captiva all year long!

Sincerely,

The Sandalfoot Team
