If you’ve been following my three-week adventure up to this point…you’ll remember I started in Cincinnati, Ohio…Couchsurfed through Asheville, N.C., Charleston, S.C. and Savannah, GA, and then visited the Panhandle of Florida, where I had rented a unit through VRBO for a week (but only spent five days because I was lonely there)–moving on to the Tampa Bay area, staying with fellow blogger Zully for four nights–and finally driving here to my brother’s ex-wife’s sister’s condo. I was joined by my husband, who will visit for a week and then a couple of girlfriends will arrive for a week. The condo is located 30 minutes from Ft. Myers beach…in Cape Coral. Less than 10 minutes away is a small beach, marina, yacht club and restaurant.
Here are the beach and pier…
We arrived just before sunset…
I never grow tired of the sunsets! As soon as the sun set…people started walking back to their cars and I thought…this is when it gets good…you shouldn’t leave yet!
This one looks to me like someone is painting strokes of color in the sky.
If you don’t mind being uncomfortable sometimes (sleeping on a couch) (relying on the kindness of strangers)…then Couchsurfing will afford you the opportunity to discover new places through the eyes of your host/hostess, make new friendships and be able to extend your trip because it’s more affordable!
My new motto…”Life is better at the Beach”!
