January 2023 Trip Day 9: Everglades and Ft. Myers
We started the day off with a trip to Robert's. It's an open-air market that sells milkshakes and smoothies using their tropical fruit. The guys got a milkshake and I got a smoothie, but I don't recall the flavors. Mine was supposed to taste like chocolate pudding...it did not. Still a neat experience, though! We bought a couple of the specialty fruits to take home.
|This guy was right off of the path. No barrier between him and the visitors! That's the closest I've ever been to one of these guys.|
|This is a pig in disguise. The greedy little guy caught a fish, but it was too big to eat so he had it dangling out of his mouth. He'd try and swallow it from time to time, but with no luck. I wonder what happened to him!|
Having made our way across the state, we started heading North. We spent the evening exploring Ft. Myers.
|When I took this picture, I thought it was of a weary man leaning against a pole. Now I'm pretty sure it's a man about to relieve himself. Keep it classy, Ft. Myers.|
|Amazing sunset off the pier.|
