Do you need directions to 75 NORTH?

When I moved to Fort Myers in 2001 I saw a bumper sticker that said "We're not all on vacation"  I found it a little rude. Fast forward 11 years- I want/NEED that bumper sticker. We are busting at the seams here. The traffic feels like it did in Houston. With this awesome weather & all this area has to offer, we are at full capacity. Not to mention I live in the middle of the Red Sox & the Twins spring training parks.

 Near downtown Fort Myers are the winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. A great place to visit, by the way. Edison had it right when in 1914 he said   "There's only one Fort Myers and 90 million people are going to find it out."

The beaches are no exception to the crowds.
 Even my little slice of paradise Little Hickory Island is busy.

 Lucky for me this winter season is almost over. After Easter most will go home & we locals can have our town back. That is always a good day at the beach!

enjoy your day!

  1. Hey Girlfren! Nice to see you posting. I know, the traffic in Fort Myers & beaches is horrible. I'll be back after Easter. Love the snowbirds though - spend lots of $$$ & head on home. I'm looking forward to a nice quiet Lil Hickory soon.
