    We haven't been there in a few years, but we always enjoyed eating at the Island Cow. Very good food and large portions. We always had leftovers for another day.

    We ate there early in our stay and enjoyed it. Large portions and nice decor.

    We arrived today and found the pool still open. The contractor is behind schedule so nothing has been done yet. Work could start any day now, but I'm sure they won't arrive on Sunday, so at least we have today and tomorrow, and if we're lucky, maybe longer.

    We left estero on Saturday and are in Wisconsin for four months. I sure miss Florida already.

    Still no sign of the pool contractors. We can't figure out why the resort feels the pool must be renovated. It seems fine to us, but there must be something we don't know about it.

    Yesterday we went to the Edison & Ford Winter Home/museum, and it was very worthwhile. Drive time was about thirty minutes, and traffic wasn't bad at all.

    We made it through the whole week without work being done on the pool. A few workmen were looking things over a couple days ago. Our week on Sanibel was more exciting, but we've enjoyed Lehigh's laid back vibe, the activities, and the other guests staying here.

    We stayed at Lehigh Acres 15 years ago while we were house hunting down here. That resort had more activities than any other place I've ever been, maybe because they are so far from the beach and most of the action. It was the first place I ever heard of pickleball and frisby tree golf.

    By the way, what were your favorite things about Sanibel?

    We stayed there while house hunting also, six weeks, but not in a row in 2003.

    Our resort was a short walk to Lighthouse Beach, which was nice, and we enjoyed the views from the bay and from the gulf. The island has a pleasant laid back vibe which we appreciated. We went to Ding Darling nature preserve, had some nice meals on Sanibel and Captiva in quaint, beachy type settings, did a little shopping in the upscale stores, and generally swam and relaxed in lounge chairs with some audiobooks. It was a very relaxing vacation which is exactly what we wanted.

    Are you seriously going to "miss" being in SW Florida in June, July, August and September, or are you actually just saying that "tongue in cheek"? :ponder:

    If serious, you must really and truly love Florida. Personally, I could not / would not tolerate being stuck in the heat and humidity of Florida during any part of June through September --- not to mention that those particular months constitute about two thirds of hurricane season. To each their own, of course.

    We have had forties and rain for most of the ten days we have been back. So next year, I think we will wait for June. We were in a drought I. Florida, they just got a storm two days ago after months of barely any rain. Yes I love Florida
