Despite the vision of Florida being all 'fun in the sun', the whole sun part was incredibly lacking for the majority of the trip. Except on the day we made it to the gulf coast to visit my friend, Leah, in Fort Myers. I was determined to get to a beach and take some photos with my seashell print dress. There are a few things I forgot :
- I hate sand. Like, super hate it. I had this idea I was going to sit in the sand. Let's talk about how that was never actually going to happen.
- Beaches are crazy crowded. It took us over an hour to drive the mile stretch to get to this beach!
- Despite all of that, I always love being by water, and finding a restaurant on the water to eat at is necessary.
So, we stopped in for a bite to eat at Doc Ford's Rum Bar where we enjoyed a (very not strong) mojito and some yummy shrimp! We met up with Leah later, and I was so into catching up with her and meeting her new beau, I left my camera in my bag so I could focus a little more on what was going on around me.
