We are glad that Matt and Shirley joined us for a few days of cruising in Southwest Florida! On Friday, we cast off from Legacy Harbour Marina in Fort Myers for the 21 mile trip to Pink Shell Marina on Fort Myers Beach, the barrier island offshore of Fort Myers.
When we arrived at Pink Shell, the wind was around twenty miles an hour from the east, and the tide was changing. Strong winds pushing us from behind and tidal currents pushing us sideways made docking a challenge, but with two tries we got it done.
We enjoyed walking the beautiful white sand Gulf of Mexico beach at Pink Shell and then drove to Captiva Island to see the sunset at the Mucky Duck beach restaurant. After returning to the boat, we finished the evening by making great progress on a 550 piece puzzle.
A good day!
