Biking Sanibel Island with DH & Thousand Island Dressing

January 24, 2012

I love that once we made it onto Sanibel Island we no longer needed a car. Where we stayed provided free bicycles for the asking to use on the bike paths that weave through Sanibel.

Our first morning the plan was to bike to the lighthouse – a simple 1.25 mile ride. No worries. DH & I work out with a personal trainer. We have a recumbent bike at home on which we use the Sprint 8 program for cardiac fitness.

Lighthouse seen. Photos of living shells taken. Time to head back to the condo & figure out what’s in store for the remainder of the morning & day.

Since he had plotted out course on a map, DH was in the lead. He stopped here & there to see the sites, but after quite a few minutes I asked if this was the way he intended to take us back because we had been riding for about 45 minutes & I hadn’t seen a single thing that I recognized from our earlier ride.

Give him credit – DH admitted he was lost, fished his cell phone from his pocket with a GPS locator on it & handed the cell phone & the duties as lead biker to me. We were back to the condo in minutes, a bit leg-weary but with no need for a further fitness workout that day.

We road 1.25 miles to the lighthouse & 6.75 miles back. Go figure.

Thousand Island Dressing

DH’s favorite!

  2. Place dressing in a covered container.
  3. Refrigerate for several hours, stirring occasionally, so that the flavors blend.
