On the river in a marina setting. Freshest seafood and herbs from their own herb garden. Music on certain nights and all day on Sunday. Funky fun! Wes had shrimp n grits and I had a crab cake (real crab/no filler). We shared a great salad with things in it like Chickory and a great $10 bottle of wine.
Choskoloskee Island and Everglades City are full of surprises. The RV Resort is over the top. The island is wildly beautiful; but those amazing Floridian Landscapers have been doing their magic here and there to give it some finish (note nicely balanced here and there). We are near the entrance to Everglades National Park and will be exploring Shark Valley, possibly taking a two hour tram into the heart of the Everglades, and taking an airboat tour. Meanwhile, it is so wonderful here with temps in the 80s and bright sunshine, that we have slowed down our usual pace and are actually hanging out at the resort, lounging by the pool, reading our books, and relaxing. Gotta get going through as there is much to see and do here. So much so that we are extending our stay for almost a full week. Might get in some fishing. To quote the tourism brochure for this area, "The Everglades National Park and the Ten Thousand Islands (from here north to Goodland) are a traveling fisherman's ideal destination. It is one of the most pristine and productive fisheries in North America." Gone Fishing!
