Nov 13, 2014 - Pine Island Sound

Joan is back and ready to lead us on more kayak trips this winter and we are raring to go! Today we went past Matlacha to Tropical Island Park near St James City. the day was perfect with lots of sunshine and little wind. Joan almost lost all the things in a plastic bag that draped over the side of her kayak. I helped her get organized and she dried off her binoculars and declared herself ready to go. But the seat in her kayak (very expensive one) finally broke and she needed help getting a beach towel placed in back of her to provide some...

Nov 24, 2013 - Pine Island / Fort Meyers Beach

Today we went to explore Pine Island. We had opted out of going in the past and it turns out that was a big mistake. We found the island to have great food and FANTSTIC galleries! We stopped at a little roadside place on the island where Tony had a delicious bowl of Lobster Chowder. He said it was spectacular. I ordered a couple of crab cakes, which were spectacular. They were served with a side of coleslaw which had a very interesting flavor. Turns out it was regular slaw with lime and coconut added! It was great! Pine Island is loaded...

We were ready to leave as soon as Norma's soap's were over , we left to take a short drive with our new travel trail just up the road for a one night stay.We wanted to test out the camper , to see what may fall off the camper and to get the bugs out.

Jun 20, 2012 - June 20th continued.....

So, I thought I was done journaling for today, but I remembered a few things I wanted to mention before they flew out of my mind again. Also, I wanted to write about our afternoon. First of all, I forgot to blog about the "sighting" we had in Manchester last night after dinner at Friendly's. We were on our way back to the hotel, and we saw an individual walking down the center of the 4-lane road. He was..... interesting, to say the least. He was walking down the road with an American flag and a bunch of what looked like marijuana...

Jan 2, 2010 - Fort Myers to Sarasota and beyond

We left our campground at Pine Island and headed to Sarasota. Sarasota was the winter home and training grounds for the Ringling Brothers Circus for many, many years. John Ringling, the last of the original brothers and the main organizer of the circus, had made a huge fortune by investing his circus money into real estate, railways, and other sources. He and his wife built a huge, Venetian mansion on the waterfront, and when they had no children and the family around him was shrinking, Ringling left his money to form a huge art museum. Now...
