Edison's Retreat

Mike went fishing with a friend down on Pine Island yesterday.  I rode down with him and then made a trip over to Fort Myers and toured the Edison-Ford Winter Estates.  It was well worth the trip.  The guided tour was interesting, but what captured me was the grounds.  Everything was in lush spring bloom.

Mike and I stopped for dinner on the way back home.  The restaurant was right on the water, served very fresh fish, and offered a view of the setting sun while dophin and manatees went swimming by.  There was no need for dessert.

  2. What a lovely day. All my time in Florida and I never visited Edison Estates. Shame on me.

  3. This sounds like a wonderful adventure. I would love to be sitting by the ocean and eating fresh fish. Fresh fish is a luxury we never have in the middle of the West.

  4. Why was there no need for dessert? I'm confused. What?
