Had a great exercise day at Ft. Myers Beach. The only place to park for free seemed to be just east of the causeway. The view from the top of was magnificent.
The beach was very crowded during the day as it is high season. License plates from all over the US and Canada indicate those savvy travelers escaping the cold snd snow up north. And some college students consuming an extra shot or two in the afternoon.
A nice long beach for a leisurely stroll or swim.
