"The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in
its net of wonder forever."—Jacques Cousteau

April 28 - Ft. Myers Beach, FL

Day 53 - Waiting
Matanzas Marina

We are staying in Ft. Myers Beach until Saturday, waiting for the front to move through. The winds should be lighter and the seas calmer by then. So in the mean time we are just hanging out. I'm a bath person and have really missed taking long bubble baths, but today we discovered this marina has a private bathroom with a tub. I had my first bath since we left Texas...what a great way to start my day. We also did a load of wash…all our days can't be exciting!  LOL

After lunch we rode around town, did a little shopping and Stan got a hair cut. Getting around on the bikes is getting harder now that the weather is warming up, but we are definitely getting in better shape. Our other means of transportation is our dinghy. We took it across the bay to a seafood market and bought a red snapper filet for dinner.

Can you find The Pearl?

 Low tide...this is the middle of the bay we crossed
 We tied up the dinghy to the dock and walked by these shrimp boats to get to the fish market
