This is Octifest, a season of mission at Sanibel Sea School that will culminate in the Octifest fundraiser on April 26 at the Community Center. To celebrate these eight weeks, Sanibel Sea School is holding eight all-island scavenger hunts. Each week a clue will be published here in the Island Sun. The person who finds a laminated token bearing the Octifest octopus will receive a beautiful crystal vase by island artist Luc Century.
To follow the Octifest scavenger hunts between issues of the Island Sun tune in to sanibelseaschool.blogspot.com on the web. As soon a token is found, the blog will carry a posting.
So, with mirth and glee we present clue number three!
We are islands after all
Connected by bridges short and tall.
And what that really means is that all
But the water we use must get here.
We use something every day
A lot of this, it’s sad to say.
We take it for granted in every way.
It comes to us from across the bay.
That’s all you need to find it.
The point you are looking for
Is where this stuff comes ashore
It’s customarily reached by foot, or
A boat, I suppose, could get there.
Happy Octifest hunting!
