After our stay in the Everglades and south Florida, we needed to work our way back up the coast as we made some kind of progress towards Texas. One of our stopping points was Sanibel Island, Florida.
We don’t have many pictures and we didn’t do much. This was mostly just a nice place for us to wind down for a couple days after all the non-stop activity of the Keys, the ‘Glades and Big Cypress. We did some very minor RV maintenance, ate some good food and went bike riding (with just a little bit of shopping thrown in to keep Dasy happy).
Be warned, the ground get’s very soft when it rains. I came back from somewhere to find the TW laying down on the job. I had to put a cutting board under the kickstand to stop it from sinking. I should have just left the TW on the hitch rack. The one time I took it out, it ran out of gas and I had to push it back. Of course, if I’d paid a little more attention, I might have realized that I didn’t have the fuel petcock turned on correctly. :S Lesson learned.
The Seafood Combo from the Island Cow… very tasty and enough for both of us.
Signs for Periwinkle Park, the only RV spot we could find on the island. The signs are easy
to miss, especially in traffic when you need to stop a 38’ motorhome and a Jeep.
Note: We’re still playing ‘catch up’ on the blog. I’m posting this from Texas about two weeks after our actual stay there.
