Lake Ontario Walk, Early Spring

Bumble has been with us for a year now, and he is slowly overcoming his fear of water. This weekend we spent the afternoon walking in Hopkins Creek on our new property, and he seemed pretty comfortable with that. Today we went for a walk down to the lake, and Bumble seemed more nervous - I'm guessing because of the sound of the waves (even though it wasn't rough). I tried to remind him that he is supposedly part Lab ... I don't think he believes me.

' Beautiful March evening, and Mom and I are out for a walkie. I love walking with my Mom <3

Mom, you say I'm part Lab ...
... but I'm not so sure.

You want me to touch the water?

Are you outta your mind??

I'll stand on this rock until I get the nerve. Maybe Mom will forget.

I think my toe got wet ... maybe it's not so bad?

Yikes! A sunami!

Right now I am channeling my Terrier side, and I shall sit right here.

Carlos Pointe, Fort Myers

Whoa. It's been a long time since I added anything to my blog and I've missed it. My life has been a happy whirlwind of school and family, so writing time has been nonexistent. Here I go ...

In February we vacationed at the south end of Fort Myers Beach, Florida, and we had an awesome time. Mom flew down to meet us (her Christmas gift from us) and the four of us stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo at Carlos Pointe.

We would definitely stay there again.

Clean, friendly, great location ... 'loved every single second of it. We rented unit 125 so we can't vouch for any other unit (some of the reviews of the other units are scathing) and it was very clean and comfortable. These condos look right out onto the gulf, but are also located right at a place where there is a lot of boat traffic heading out from the intercoastal waters. It was sooo relaxing to watch from the comfort of our lanai, drink in hand.

Note: If you are young and single and looking for "action", do not stay at Carlos Pointe. There were moments we felt like we were in a scene from Cocoon, but we thoroughly enjoyed feeling very fit and youthful.

Restaurants we enjoyed:
Best Meal: Bayfront Bistro
Excellent Meal: South Beach Grill
Great Authentic Italian: Enzo's Italian Restaurant
Amazing Mexican (and $1 margaritas while we waited for a table!): Iguana Mia
Yummy Casual Food: Coconut Jack's
Great Beachy Atmosphere: Doc's Beach House
