Nervous Nellie’s Crazy Waterfront Eatery

Posted by Shane On March 26th

Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing great!!!

It is actually beginning to warm up here in SW Florida and it has not been as windy either, thank goodness. Well I took my own advice from last weeks boating guide and went to Ft. Myers Beach by boat for the Shrimp Festival. What a great time. There was lots of food, drink and vendor tents set up with some really neat stuff. Everyone was in great spirits, the sun was out, it was warm, people were very happy and the Beach was packed. Enjoy the photos below, then I will tell you about …… NERVOUS NELLIE’S CRAZY WATERFRONT EATERY….

52nd Annual Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival

Posted by Shane On March 18th

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing great. It has been very cold here in Lee County for way to long. It seems as though we are not getting any warming breaks with the exception of today Wednesday March 10. It is actually up to 82 degrees wah hoo, it is about time. It is sunny out and beautiful blue skies. No, I am not out in the boat; I am inside working diligently like I am supposed to be. Hopefully we will start to see some warmer weather here real soon. Spring Break has kicked off for many northern schools and it seems like all the Spring Breakers and families are making their way to Ft. Myers Beach. It is great to see all this activity and money being brought into our local economy.

This leads me in to my next boating guide tip. This weekend is the 52nd annual; yes 52nd annual Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival. What a great time!!!! Saturday (March 13, 2010) morning the sky bridge (bridge from the main land to Ft. Myers Beach) will close at 9:00 a.m. So if you are coming by car get there early. If you choose to park on the main land side, you can take the trolley over. Now for the boaters you can come anytime. My suggestion would be to anchor just off the beach near the pier and walk into shore. (weather permitting) if it is windy and rough, you will want to come on the inside of Ft. Myers Beach and tie up at one of the restaurants or you can anchor on the inside of Bow Ditch point, it is the most northern end of Ft. Myers Beach and walk to Time’s Square where all the activities are, anchoring there would be my last choice, because you would have to walk a ways to get to Time’s Square.

Weekend Trip To Islamorada!

Posted by Shane On March 4th

Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing great!!!! It is trying to warm up here in sunny South West Florida. I cannot wait for this weather to pass and get warm again. Have not been boating at all due to the cold and high winds, however, did take a weekend trip down south to Islamorada in the Florida Keys. I figured it had to be warmer down there. I wanted to share this with you because it is something you can do too.

My Broker/Office manager and I and a great client turned into fishing and boating buddy, Bruce loaded up in the truck at 5:00 am Friday morning with the boat on the trailer behind us and headed to the Keys. It is only a 3 hour drive. This is a great quick in expensive get away and I promise you will have a blast. It is another world down in the keys. The water is so beautiful.
