Wed. in Paradise

This is a view of one of our favorite restaurants, Parrot Key, from the end of the dock which extends out from the outdoor dining area. Parrot Key is located on San Carlos Island just before you go over the skybridge to Ft. Myers Beach. Just down from the restaurant are the shrimp boats, the excursion boat to Key West and the gambling boat.
I love sitting outside and watching the Back Bay boat traffic. The food is wonderful with a very Carribean flavor, fresh and tasty. Most evenings there is live music and on Sundays, one of the original Platters plays and sings.
When our friends are down from St. Louis for our week at the time share together, we often rent pontoon boats from the marina , Salty Sam's, next door to the restaurant and cruise to Lover's Key for shelling, swimming and sun. They also rent kayaks here and we have been wanting to try the Back Bay as part of the Great Calusa Blue Way goes through this way (a 100 mile marked water trail for canoes and kayakers).
Welcome to my world. Posted by Picasa

Lovely pictures, Jules. Looks like a fun place to eat too! Going to see your new blog. I spent two hours outside yesterday weeding and deadheading; that was such a good quote you shared and appropriate.
