Tourism report for Sanibel and Captiva Islands

USATODAY.com - Tide turns for Sanibel and Captiva Islands

Fair assesment of the situation down in Fla post Charley

My own observations, many complexes still recovering, many still closed
Some buildings still "blue bagged" (tarps)
Streachs of beach pretty empty

Also : from local press :

Relief reaction :
USA Today article compliments islands

Concern over critiques
Tourist council in a tizzy over recent flurry of media exposure
Ft.Myers : Nascar and strip clubs - I've been missing something ...

Area hotels running out of rooms
I can believe it - airport was jammed at midnight ... 5 incoming flights ... on a Thursday
Saturday is switchover day for weekly rentals
