Where I stayed
New Years Day we spent at Miami Beach which was great fun sitting in the cafe people watching, just like a live show!!! The beach had really white sand and was easy to walk on as very flat and underneath the sand was solid limestone packed down like road base. Drove to Key Lago and watched the most beautiful sunset in a cool little bar on the bay. Unfortunately it got too dark to drive to Key West.
Yesterday we did a day trip to The Everglades National Park, it was great to see the sawgrass and all the native animals that live in this environment, so many different birds. It is a really beautiful area with great views out to the islands in the gulf.
Today we drove through the middle of the everglades to Naples, the most beautiful scenic town on the west coast where lots of retirees come to live. So much wealth, it's hard to comprehend.
Headed onto Fort Myers which is another coastal town but less expensive. We met a lovely older couple who sail here each year to spend the winter. It has a city harbour which is very convienent if you are staying on a boat.
Our accommodation in this pristine place is in a tiny shoebox. I told Gary to leave our stuff in the car, no room at the inn!!
