A Day Trip Fort Meyers Beach to See Uncle Charles & Thelma

Jonathan and I left the RV around 8:30 this morning to pick up a part Tom was having a local welder work on for the satellite dish. Once we did that, we headed for Fort Myers Beach.

Uncle Charles, my Dad's brother, lives down in this area and I wanted to visit him while we were fairly close. We got together with him and Thelma for the day. Charles fixed a nice lunch then they took us around the island and showed us some of the attractions. He and Thelma dropped us off a little ways down the beach and Jonathan and I walked back to the condo while we played in the water.

Thelma has a little dog, Bandit, that Jonathan just fell in love with so he played with her a lot while we visited. We talked about traveling. I didn't realize how much traveling he had done over the years. I know who to call now if I want to know what the highlights are in any particulare area.
