Rick's Road Trip Tues Oct 21/Thu Oct 23

Next Day

Tues: Sanibel Island.
Arrived here Mon. I spent the afternoon being productive by surveying the local bars. Mission accomplished. Sanibel island seems to be basically a resort area. I talked with a couple from Canada and a guy from Michigan who owned condos and spent time here in the winter. I thing it is also a spring break destination. As you can see fron the photos it is pretty nice. I spent some time on the beach setting some sun. This was the place to get some r and r. I should also note that the beer was good and cold as usual.
Wed: Spent the am on Sanibel Island. Then on to Ruskin, near Tampa Bay, where my cousin Bob and his wife Barbara reside. Thurs: Spent the day at Bob and Barbara's. Both of them are doing well. I did not see any alligators even though Bob said that one was seen on the street of their community at one time. Bob says that when he plays golf there he never puts his back to the water, Alligators! They live in a gated community with a gold course and a very nice clubhouse. The clubhouse has a weight/workout room that Bob swears that he used on a regular basis.
Fri: On the road to the Florida panhandle area. Hope to get to the Tallahasse area today.
