Florida - Southwest Coast

Big eight-lane boulevard going into Fort Meyers, Florida on a Tuesday afternoon about 3pm - We moved forward three feet and then stopped for five minutes - - over and over.  Not Treky's favorite thing to do.

This is McGregor Boulevard in Fort Meyers, Florida.  It is in "old" Fort Meyers.

Those are Royal Palm trees lining McGregor Boulevard.  McGregor runs for miles through Fort Meyers.  Thomas Edison lived here.

On a causeway leading to the approach to Sanibel/Captiva Islands

It took Treky one full hour to travel about two miles to get to the toll booth to cross the bridge to get to Sanibel.

Toll was $6.00 - Traffic was unbelievable - Treky's advice, "Don't go there".

The Sanibel Island bridge

Periwinkle Way - The main road on Sanibel - Not for heavy traffic.

It's our opinion that Central Florida is wonderful. - The further South you go and the closer to the water you go, the denser the population and the heavier the traffic.  Stay on the back roads - off the interstates and toll roads.  Visit the small towns - avoid the big cities - - Just the opinion of these three guys.

Tomorrow - the trip home.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
