and Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist J.N. "Ding" Darling
fell in love with Captiva and 'Tween Waters Inn in the 1930s,
making the resort his winter home for almost a decade. During
that time, he was often inspired to recreate his unique vision
of island life on paper or, occasionally, in the guest registry.
A collection of his island stylings, both original and reprints,
are on display at the Old Captiva House.
