First Things First: First all day rain in Fort Myers Beach (in months).
Mile to Mile: Guess what? It actually does rain during the day in Fort Myers Beach. We got about an inch of rain overnight and intermittent showers all day. I decided to catch up on the blog at the library and had to dodge wind, rain and huge puddles all the way there and back. It was worth it, though, to have nice working conditions and really good internet. Cindy stayed at the boat and made white chocolate dipped strawberries and pretzel sticks and didn’t take a nap (supposedly). We are going to surprise Linda (Spiritus) and her sisters with a little treat at their hotel.
It was such an ugly, grey day I didn’t even remember to take any pictures – all the better I guess to keep the illusion that it’s always nice in FMB. After a relatively productive day, we cooked rice and heated some rotisserie chicken in the rice cooker for dinner and watched Big Bang Theory on the computer (using our EyeTV device). What an exciting Valentines Day. We are leaving next Wednesday for Fort Myers so we will be busy the next week getting things ready and checking off items on our to-do list ($2.95 breakfast at the Lani Kai, pizza at Upper Deck, another movie at the beach theatre, tour the Mound House, nachos at Nervous Nellies, chicken wings at Lani Kai, tour the Lynx, go miniature golfing, miscellaneous boat projects and lots of walking on the beach). Oh, the stress!
