"If this place is not pretty, then"
I'm sure I don't know what is folks! Mike and I had precious little time for this wonderful town. For more on Fort Myers, go to an expert, someone who lives there,
Bob can tell you the inside stuff.

"The best part of Fort. Myers was..."
NO DOUBT about it, meeting Bob/tropicdiver was our favorite part of Fort Myers! We had lunch together at the Shrimp Shack.
Now that we have met, and let Bob pick the restaurant twice, we can tell you right now...Bob knows good food!!! He can choose our restaurant any time. We met again for dinner, that was on Sanibel Island, and it was even BETTER!! Mike and I really like this area, and feel it is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. It was very hot in May, I would love to visit in January to check it out.
(Thanks to the manager of Shrimp Shack for taking this picture of our mini VT meeting! ) We really had fun.
"Near the Edison Home..."
I like statues, and this is really a typical street scene. We didn't have much time here, but would like to go back again. If you like palm trees, swimming, great restaurants, shopping, and warm ocean breezes, this is a town for you!! The beaches are so plentiful, and I felt for families, or seniors, you could not pick better swimming.
