The Journey Continues...

Florida

 

WEST COAST, FL
There are those who prefer the West Coast of Florida and those who prefer the East Coast.
Since we are still learning, we continue to try both when we can.
A trip to JetBlue Park (Fenway South) in Fort Myers is as good an excuse as any
to take a drive to Southwest Florida. On this day (March 5) the Red Sox hosted the Houston Astros
on a hot, sunny, beautiful day in March 2020. The Sox lost, but it was still fun to see them.

 

 

 

PUNTA GORDA, FL
In the ongoing search for Fireboats, we found our way to Punta Gorda.
