Woke up this morning with a sad feeling as this was our last full day at Fort Myers Beach. We went in search of pancakes for breakfast. Found a great pancake house and had a really good meal. Went back to the hotel to change and then headed for the beach. as it was Saturday the beach was a little busier but still plenty of space for all. Not far from where we set up our stuff there was a half circle of chairs. We wondered why as there was no-one sitting anywhere near them. We went for a swim and another attempt at snorkeling for me. when we got back to our stuff a table and flowers had been put with the chairs. We went off to do a bit of kite flying and when we got back yet more flowers had arrived. Shortly after this a group of people arrived and sat in the chairs. Later still a young man arrived and also a minister and soon after that a bride. Yes it was a Florida beach wedding. It was lovely. We Watched for a while but then went back to our kites as it would soon be sunset .So this would be our last chance to fly for quite a while.   
Soon the sun began to set the wedding party returned to their hotel, and Andy and I watched a beautiful sun set before packing our kites away.  
Sadly we made our way back to the hotel to shower, change and plan our last evening.  We had heard very good reports of Charlie's Boathouse Grill. It's about 5 minutes walk from the hotel and we decided to try it. The food was excellent and although it wasn't cheap (about $85.00 for 2) it was money well spent. As we left, we noticed  a really unusual fisherman mailbox. We went for a short walk, looking around the local area. We saw a manatee mailbox wearing a christmas hat. As I love manatees we had to have a photo. We Also saw a nice Nativity Scene. We carried on  walking  to the beach. Once again it was a wonderful evening with the sky full of stars. We walked along the shore for a while and then returned to the hotel. Repacked our cases, made coffee and took it out on the veranda to drink it by the light of the moon and then went to bed.
