    Sorry for the misinformation. It has been a while since the trip. This and the rooftop pics were at Fort Myers beach. The restaurant / hotel was called Lani Kai Island Resort.

    We almost booked a room their online the night before. I'm glad we did not. It was full of young party people with heavy drinking habits (ha ha). Lots to look at though, the fish is not old school, get it fish&school but I do prefer the backwaters where it's not so busy.

    This was not a conservative place. Barefoot girls in dripping wet string bikinis prancing through the lobby.

    Sorry no pics as I was with miss fish. Use your imagination, yea, it was like that.

    As I mentioned the hotel gave us free tickets to stroll around the grounds. They had the home and botanical garden decked out for Christmas.

    The stories this place could tell. Thomas Edison and Henry ford were neighbors. Edison was hugely into botany and had a large botanical garden at this sight in Florida.

    This is not Fords' garage but a place downtown Called Fords' Garage. Just people hanging out chillen and having a good time. I'll try to dig up more later. Fish is busy just trying to stay afloat. Retirement is a myth or a dream that I hope I live long enough to experience. This area is Ideal if you can stand the weather. Hey SRV tune about Texas " couldn't stand the weather". It's raining down in Texas, good night Fredwiggy where ever you are.

    I forgot what they said they were trying to catch. It was not walleyes or bluegills something other than I'm used to. No not bottle bass either.

    Fords place called "The Mangoes" seemed to have a bit more of a woody feel to it.

    Edison's botanical garden has a huge banyan tree. He was into plants as he was a chemist looking into the make up of them.

    Dropped the ball at midnight near the riverfront. Then a fireworks show. Pretty calm crowd for new years. It was nice to see everyone having a good time. What a crappy pic now that I look at it. Oh well, I may find a better one later. Gotta go now.
