We're now in North fort Myers for the month and looking forward to staying busy seeing stuff, doing things and seeing friends and family.
We spent one day biking around LakePark which is pretty much right in the middle of Fort Myers. Once you get inside the park you'll think that you're 30 miles out int the country. They have a big lake, beaches, kayak and paddle boat rentals, one,two and four seater bikes, a miniature train to take rides around the park on, about 8 miles of hiking and biking trails (paved) and a garden.
A little cloudy one day so we went to the Edison Ford Winter Estates, we only planed on spending a couple hours here today so we just wandered around the gardens, we're saving the museum and homes for a rainy day.
a lot of color
Eighty degrees and sunny so we went over to Pine Island to bicycle the south half of the island. First thing we did was spot a Book sale sign at the library, so that's where we spent our first hour. The ride south to St James was pretty straight and level and boring, not a lot to see until you get to the south end and because it was a Saturday all the motorcycles were gathered at the outdoor bars with the bands playing. The one bar was karaoke and they sounded pretty bad, the other had a three piece band doing a country rock and roll which wasn't to bad. Other then the bars there is absolutely nothing there, maybe next week when we do the north end it will be better.
A fast Pepsi stop here

One of the houses at the end of the trail
Of course this house was right around the corner.
We almost traded for this tandem
