On Saturday, we headed down to Everglade City, about an hour south, to do an aligator airboat tour! I had always wanted to do one, and it definitely did not disappont! Did you know that alligators grow 1 ft. per year for the first five years, and then 1-2 inches per year thereafter? And they live to be over 50 years old?
On Sunday, we spent the day enjoying the 84 degree weather on the beach in Bonita Springs...which was a 10 minute ride from the condo. What a way to start the new year...
Capitva: Rent a boat at Jensen's Twin Palm Marina (afterwards, grab a drink at the Mucky Duck or Doc Ford's to see a beautiful sunset - hope you see the Green Flash!)
Everglades Airboat Tour: Speedy's Airboat Tours (afterwards, have lunch at the Everglades Rod & Gun Club)
Bonita Beach: Doc's Beach House is a great spot for breakfast or lunch, right on the beach (watersport rentals are there too!); For an amazing steak dinner, head to Chop's on Rt. 41)
Naples: Go fishing with Captain Pete's Bait & Tackle
