What we're about

I am so proud to be a part of this community! We live in PARADISE... and I want to explore every part of it. We live where people come when they want to go on vacation. Let's explore Lee County together.... every day can be a vacation when you live in paradise.

I want to vacation in my own back yard! I am looking for other fun-minded people to join in the experience. We will go to restaurants, attractions and clubs. We will attend events, concerts and sporting events. If there is something fun to do in Lee County, let's do it! Life is too short to not take advantage of every day!

Tips to the crew are also very much appreciated, so please bring cash if you would like to contribute.

We are able to bring coolers on the boat, but they do ask that we not bring red wine.

I hope you can join us!

Art Class: Painting with Alcohol Ink

Needs a location

Hi Friends!

As someone that has very little artistic ability, I love these classes! Lorna always makes them so fun... and everyone ends up with a great piece of art! The technique of using alcohol ink to paint really is easy to do.

For this class, we can choose from the 4 shapes in the photo (lizard, frog, dolphin, parrot). All these shapes are around 14" in size. If you want a specific shape, please call Lorna in advance to make sure she has enough on hand [masked]). You will also have the opportunity to upgrade to other shapes/sizes once you get to the studio if you would like.

The cost for the 4 shapes shown is $40 (plus tax). To reserve your spot (and to pay), please click on the link below:

Babcock Ranch Swamp Buggy Eco Tour

Needs a location

Hi Friends!

We are so lucky to live in this gorgeous state!

I thought this swamp buggy tour would be a great way to explore more of our beautiful community. We did it a few years ago and a lot of members said how much they enjoyed it. As of right now, the tour will be limited to the first 20 people to pay... and it is open to the public.

The cost of the tour (with tax) is $27.12.

Please click below to purchase your ticket:

https://babcockranchecotours.com/tours/swamp-buggy-eco-tour/

The Swamp Buggy Eco-Tour is a 90 minute tour through the natural wildlife of historic Babcock Ranch. We will travel through the Crescent B Ranch, a working cattle ranch with over 14,000 acres in pasture land and learn its history.

We will also wander through Florida ecosystems, getting up close and personal with the local wildlife – like wild turkeys, caracara, soft shell turtles, magnificent osprey, Sandhill cranes, and fox squirrels – just to name a few.

We will meet at 10:45 and start the tour promptly at 11:00.

I hope you can join us!
