Day Two Fort Myers, FL

 We had an easy day today of 30 miles in 3 hours traveling from Captiva Island to Fort Myers up the Caloosehatchee River.  Total miles traveled is 95. We stayed at the Royal Palm Yacht Club near downtown.  Great venue.  Unfortunately it was closed on Monday so we ventured in to the new downtown for dinner.
 Adjacent to the Yacht club is the Thomas Edison Winter Home.  We enjoyed a tour of the home and grounds of not only the Thomas Edison Home but also the adjacent Henry Ford winter home.
A view from our boat of the Royal Palm Yacht Club.  A great benefit of being a member of a FL yacht club is that you are offered reciprocity for dockage at little cost at many clubs throughout FL.
