My morning walk today was a little chilly at 66 degrees. Funny how quickly I acclimated to 90 degrees in Fort Myers. I noticed something that I’ve never noticed in all of the years I’ve been going to the beach – watch the video and see the live shells bury themselves under the sand as.
Day one of my road trip to Treasure Island, Florida – near St. Petersburg – was a good one! An easy drive from Fort Myers, and a beautiful day! I left the 90 degree humid weather in Fort Myers, and only a couple hours north, found low 80’s, sunshine, and no humidity. I was starting.
Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grill is located water side just before the Matanzas Pass Bridge which takes you to Fort Myers Beach (Estero Island), Florida. I stopped in for an appetizer and some conch chowder recently and was treated with excellent service, a beautiful view, and some really good food. New York Times best.
I took a group of people on a tour to Duluth, MN this week. Our first stop was a ride on an historic train on the scenic St. Louis River – very peaceful and quiet. The railroad crew are all volunteers and did a great job! www.ismrr.org We had lunch at Grandma’s Restaurant in Canal.
Today a few of us hired a driver and went to the Bali Bird Sanctuary, had lunch, and did a little bit of shopping before returning to the hotel where I went out to enjoy the pool and beach one last day. Dinner tonight was at a restaurant called Balinique. The peach colored Cockatoo below.
