Saturday, instead of heading up the Universal in Orlando, my friend Cathy and I decided to head over to the other side of the peninsula to take in Western Florida and see what it had to offer. We rolled out of Boynton in the morning and ended up in Fort Myers. While there we headed to the J.N. Ding's Darling National Wildlife Reserve on Sanibel Island. It was nice to be away from the city and out in the middle of nature. We walked about 4 miles enjoying the trails and sights that the reserve had to offer. Following our time outside, we headed to a little hamburger shop that definitely had the feel of a 60's drive through stop. It was very vintage and made amazing milkshakes! After "fueling" up, we headed to the beach and spent the rest of our time strolling up and down the Gulf of Mexico. The time away from Boynton was definitely needed and helped recharge me for the upcoming week!
