Fort Meyers, FL

Camping with crocodiles!  In Florida, there are a plethora of alligators and we had a camp spot right next to a river where they live.  This meant keeping a close eye on the pups, especially at night which is when they eat.  It’s a myth that alligators hibernate, but they are less active when the weather cools down.  We didn’t see any alligators in the few days we have been here, but the RV park personnel say they are here and to beware.

One of the the fun experiences we had in Ft. Meyers was shopping (yesssss!!) and the mall had this great restaurant, Ford’s Garage.  Henry Ford had a summer home in Ft. Meyers where he worked on inventions with Thomas Edison (his next door neighbor).  They were working on developing a plant based rubber, and both of their homes are now a museum.  This restaurant was so fun, the door handles and bathroom faucets were gas pump handles, even the napkins were “shop rags” with hose clamp napkin rings.  The food was really good as well, gourmet burgers, pulled pork sliders, and a huge selection of beers.  Joel had a local Ft. Meyer brew and really liked it.  A fun spot!

    • Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for checking out our blog. We had a great time on the cruise, but it is always great to be back. I called the Chamber of Commerce in Charleston and they said they are ready for tourists, so looks like that is where we will be heading next. It was so nice meeting you, please keep in touch! All the best, Sharon
