My weekend getaway to Crystal River started on Thanksgiving Day morning. It’s about three and half hours away from my home in Fort Myers. The drive was easy – up Interstate 75 and then I headed west on a few state and county roads which brought me to a stop at the Ellie Schiller Homosassa.
Day two was an awesome day! A few walks on the beach and then a boat trip this afternoon with Charter Finders to Shell Island Preserve. Dolphins swam right next to the boat which was really cool to see. The island can only be accessed by boat, and they don’t call it shell island for.
Earlier this month my dreams became a reality when I moved to Fort Myers, Florida! I am working remotely and this will allow me to spend 7 months a year in Florida and 5 in Minnesota and traveling. I’ve only been here a month, but have tried to pack in as much as I could!.
In all of the 33 years I’ve been coming to Fort Myers, Florida I’ve never done some of the things I’ve done this week. I spent part of a day in the country and went horseback riding. My horse, Leah was a sweetie, but she didn’t want to stop too much for photos. The trail.
