On Jan. 11, the Captiva Island Historical Society aired two of its acclaimed documentaries — “Sands of Time” and “Earth, Water and Wind” — on the beach at the ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa.

The CIHS reported that it was a beautiful night and the audience of some 50 people enjoyed the mild beach conditions and were entertained and engaged in learning more about Captiva history, while wearing masks and socially distancing.

Thanks to the generosity of Board Member Tony Lapi, president and chief executive officer of Rochester Resorts — whose holdings include the resort — the CIHS was given access to the beachfront and facilities for the outdoor showing. The program was sponsored and hosted by ‘Tween Waters.

The CIHS also extended its thanks to the Captiva Island Yacht Club for use of its parking lot.
