Day 258: Indian Creek, Fort Myers Beach, FL
Sunny and hot.
We hung out with Pat and Judy again today and found another fun seafood restaurant for lunch.
Tom and I went to the Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Fort Myers. We had a tour of the grounds and got to peek in their winter homes.
There is a nice museum that covers a lot of the history of both Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. Probably my favorite, however, was the variety of trees planted on the property. They had several different banyan trees, which are a type of ficus tree.
Mrs. Edison got a nice Moonlight Garden in exchange for allowing Henry Ford to move Thomas‘ Florida laboratory to Greenfield Village in Dearborn, Michigan. The flowers open up more late in the day. They also had some incredibly large Bougainvillea.
We went back to Ray’s cottage in Bokeelia, where we could be away from people and germs for a while. It is very quiet out here and there are a lot of stars in the sky. This house is right along a canal. We sat on the porch, listening to a book and to the fish jump in the canal.
The stars are bright. It is really a beautiful, serene evening.
