The campground we planned to stay at was kind of dumpy and did not have a pool. As we were driving to our next selection in the Woodalls book we passed this mobile home Park and RV resort. It turned out to be great.

There are 1,205 sites and most sites have permanent units. Many are double wide mobile (modular) homes.

Most of the owners are back up north now, so it is very quiet.

The park is so big, you can spend all day bike riding the various roads. The roads are named after indian tribes. Onondaga Trail is one of the roads.

We also went to Sanibel and Captiva Islands every day.
Both Islands are very beatuiful, have great beaches, and outstanding houses.

Our site at Indian Creek RV Resort.
That is the Exercise Room behind us with the blue roof.
Behind that is the swimming pool and one of the 4 rec halls.
There are multiple: pools, Jacuzzi's, rec halls, laundries, meeting rooms, tennis courts, bocci courts, Shuffleboards, horseshoes, billiards, ... and tons of activities.
Also, in the large tree over on our site was a Mockingbird nest. That bird sang all day long and started in the wee morning hours. He hopped from tree to motorhome to awing and then back. He sang continuously.

The swimming pool near our site.
Mom is in there talking with people we met.

Having dinner on the beach at Fort Myers Beach.

We toured J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
This is on Sanibel Island.

A Snowy Egret along side the road at the Wildlife Refuge.
We saw a lot of birds, but they were too far for my camera.
But we did enjoy watching them with the binoculars.

An American Anhinga at the Wildlife Refuge.
He was sunning himself after diving for fish.
These birds dive completely under water while fishing. When they swim, only their head and neck stick out of the water. When they are finished fishing, they spread their wings like this in the sun to dry.
I saw this guy while driving the car and stopped just down the road. While I ran back to take this picture, Mom saw a large alligator from an observation point where I stopped the car.
