After a couple years away, we returned to our favorite winter getaway, Ft. Myers, specifically Ft. Myers Beach. With Mo retiring after 20 years at her part-time job, we decided to celebrate with four weeks at the beach. Looking for a beachfront site where I could also work, we found a first floor location at Riviera Club, which was just a bit further south than where we’ve stayed before on Estero Island.
We had decided we could isolate just as well in FL as we could in MO, and it was quite easy to maintain our safety during the pandemic. We made most of our meals at home, and were able to pick up a nice meal periodically from local restaurants to eat at the condo. As a matter of fact, Truly Scrumptious and their ice cream was just a little too convenient.
We used our proximity to Lover’s Key to spend some time there, both to enjoy their guided trail walking tour, and to hang out on the beach. Our weather in Ft. Myers the entire time we were there was beautiful (but breezy) with only one overnight rain and ~15 minutes of rain one morning. We even managed to snag tickets to a Twins Spring Training game.
If there is one thing we had in plenty supply, it was beautiful sunsets over the Gulf.
worth the wait each day
