Today we did a little exploring of the area. Our first stop was Fisherman's Pier in Punta Gorda. To be honest, was not that impressed with it. From there we drove North on the Tamiami Trail (a 4 line busy highway) as I wanted to check out Englewood Beach. It's about 25 miles north and a very nice beach. Came back to the condo for lunch and then headed to the pool as it was 84 degrees and we needed a dip in the pool.
