The cold state of Florida


Blue Springs State Park

So here we are in northern Florida and guess what, its only 60 degrees. We will hang out here for a couple of days visiting with Betsy. Soon we will set our sites towards Fort Meyers. We heard about a high speed boat that travels from Fort Meyers to Key West and are thinking about taking the trip. It is a little pricey but sounds like a neat trip. I will let you know how that goes. Yesterday we traveled to Blue Springs and visited our old friends the Manatees. There were almost 200 Manatees at the spring.  They are such amazing and gentle creatures.  Today if it gets warm enough we are getting the bikes out and riding to the beach where we will ride on the beach.
Check out the photos.

If you look carefully you can see the Manatees in the shadows

  1. While in Ft. Myers, be sure to go over to Sanibel and to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Fabulous walking/biking through the park… http://www.fws.gov/dingdarling/

    And while on Sanibel, try the Island Cow for lunch or breakfast (yummy food!), and Doc Ford’s restaurant, named for the main character in a series of mysteries based in the area.

    Oh, and say hi to the Red Sox for us, as we will not be making the trek to Spring Training this year.
