Each day is a new learning experience and places to explore in Florida. The drive to the Everglades National Park has as much to see as the actual park with alligators along the road and a gazillion different birds. Mile after mile of grass and water. The land is below sea more than it is above.
Land of Ten Thousand Islands.
The trip home included a stop at Tin City in Naples, Florida, for lunch. Just a quirky, little tourist area for little shops, but it was fun to eat lunch outside at the Riverwalk Restaurant and watch the smaller boats travel up and down the river. Just the pure joy of eating outside in 80 degree weather is pleasure enough in December.
Terry and Kathy are hamming it up with the local attractions outside the restaurant. –>
We got off of Highway 41 (Tamiami Trail) to take the road along the Gulf shoreline and through Fort Myers Beach to preview the beaches we will be visiting in the next few weeks. Great white sand beaches with fishing, sand castle building (no waves to knock them down) or just people watching.
After arriving home, we walked over to the Tiki Bar for a cocktail and met another great couple, Bob and Sue from Wisconsin. They have a Harley back home too and we traded some great stories. Both are golfers and we have plans to play later this week.
Life is good.
