Grill Out on Vacation

When I think of summer, my first thoughts are sunshine, swimming, and grilling on the barbecue. It’s hard to beat an afternoon of splashing in the pool, anxiously awaiting those hot-off-the-grill burgers. It’s like a rite-of-passage this time of year. That’s why as soon as school got out, we headed to Sanibel for a stay at Beachview Cottages, part of Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts, and indulged in all of the above.

My spouse, Michael, is known as the grill master in our circles, and his lemon chicken is approaching legendary status. Since Beachview Cottages has grills on site for guests’ use, he was grilling up a storm. (I love that!) All the grilling utensils you need like tongs and long-handled spatulas are available to loan at the front desk, no charge of course. And if the resort has charcoal briquettes on hand, you’re welcome to them.

Grilling out on vacation is easier on the budget, too. You can bring your own groceries if you’re driving to the resort or visit one of the grocery stores on the island, like Jerry’s or Bailey’s. You can also pick up all the sides you need, ready-made.

Not a griller? You can cook in the kitchen of your cottage or choose to dine out. West Wind Inn is right next door, and their Normandie’s Seaside Café is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner; their Upper Deck Pool Bar is open 11am to 8pm.

As a side note, each resort property of the Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts (‘Tween Waters, Castaway Cottages, West Wind Inn and Beachview Cottages) have onsite grills available.

Happy grilling and happy summer!
