Today, our first “Sunday Excursion”
Sunday, January 10th, Southwest Florida and the entire country experienced much colder than normal temperatures. The day was a little too cold to sit by the pool, however a perfect sunny day for a walk to explore downtown Fort Myers. I left Billy’s Creek area and proceeded down First Street and my first stop was The Butterfly Estates. The Estates were celebrating their one year anniversary.
