We went to Fort Myers to tour the Edison and Ford Winter Estates and Gardens. What a super tour. See at http://www.efwefla.org/ We spent about 6 hours touring the house, gardens and museum. The Banyan and Mysore Fig trees were really neat. If in the area we would consider doing the tour again. We did the audio tour. This is great as we could take as long as we wanted. You get a audio recorder and follow a map to number post and click on that number and listen to the recorded discrpition of what you are viewing.
After the six hours we needed a break and had lunch. After lunch we headed for the Shell Factory/Museum/store. This is combination of a small shell museun, store, great mounted animal display(like at Cabella's display), etc, etc. Very touristy, but fun. http://www.shellfactory.com/.

We will be here till Monday the 21st. We are going to La Belle about 18 miles from this park. We are going there because of a great special we have for six days. Keep the emails and comments coming, we love hearing from you all. Some one asked about the placemarks on our map. The blue is 2009, red 2010 and green 2011. Thanks for traveling along with us.
