    Fantastic area to kayak in :o) The group was great! Jeff did a superb job as always. I did my part in "taking one for the team" and had to leave my kayak out in the rain for a while when I got home....my "prediction" was spot on!!!

    Let's try lunch at: Pincher's Beach Bar (Holiday Inn)
    6890 Estero Blvd., Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931
    (239)[masked]
    www.pincherscrabshack.com/fort-myers-beach-tiki-bar

    Tiki bar is located directly on the beach and off the lobby entrance of the hotel. Attire is casual and much of the attire is beachwear. Come and relax and enjoy good food and drinks. Anytime you can sit and watch sunbathers and listen to good music, you can't help but have a good time. One of our criteria for a beach bar is whether you can go there in your bathing suit. Not only can you come here in your bathing suit, you can get up and take a dip in the Gulf of Mexico and come back and order another drink. How perfect is that? So keep the bathing suits on.
    Who knows the pool is near the Tiki Bar:-)
