If you live in Florida or travel with your dog…Lee County Dog Park next to Ft. Myers and Lovers Key State Park is a fun..fun place to take your dog! We arrived about 7:30am to meet a friend who took us kayaking and checked out the Dog Park while we waited for him to arrive.
One of the dog owners told us that the place becomes quite busy with dogs and their owners on the weekends. Depending on the tide…you may have to wade through a foot or two of water to get to the little island where the dogs are in the photo below. It was a bit chilly this morning to do that…50 degrees.
I spotted this bird while we were watching the dogs…
I’m becoming obsessed with reflection shots…
I have my down jacket on for the beginning of the kayaking experience. We paddled about three miles total and even ventured out into the Gulf from the coastal waterway. We stopped at Lovers Key State Park and walked around. I’ve only been kayaking once or twice before…so this was a lot of fun! Thanks Wayne!!
Yesterday, the lumberjack and I went and bought a couple of used beach cruisers to leave for the family members that let us use their condos…and for anyone else that visits. We purposely bought these type…you know…the old style where you push back on the pedals to stop and only one gear…forward!
We took a ride this afternoon. Of course, the lumberjack would have to ride by me and screech his brakes really loudly to scare me…which worked…but also made me angry! This was after the chain fell off…preventing me from being able to stop…which was scary! But…I had fun!
We’re headed to have a drink at the small beach nearby and a bite to eat…while we watch the sunset. Lovin’ Florida!!

Loved the dog beach, Sherry! There is a dog beach up at Big Bear Lake, where we have our vacation/retirement home. You can spend hours there just watching the dogs (and throwing balls in the water — they’re not picky who plays with them). As always your pictures are beautiful!
Thanks so much! I would love to explore more of California. Sounds beautiful!!
I love your reflections as well… this one, it is actually difficult to determine where the shrub ends and the water begins lovely… as for the heron, wow I’m impressed such a good photo… the definition down to the eye colour, fantastic… the cruisers are a nice touch, leaving them for future visitors.. great… and I’m sorry, I have to say this, but that is one hell of a pair of legs on the bike lady…whoever she is…(as he smiles quietly)….
Thank you!! I do have long legs! 🙂
Thanks for buying the bikes! And, glad you are both having a good time.
It’s our pleasure Gail! We’re so appreciative for the opportunity to visit!
What a great way to spend the winter weeks.
It is…thanks Anneli!
This road trip is looking pretty awesome! Happy travels.
The trip has been wonderful! Thanks Anita!
