Trella Hemmerly – 1980-01-23

Wednesday January 23rd
Check out of Bahi Mar $75 a day for a view of the beach where Bob Cameron and I walked in 1926 with nothing but sea & sky. Headed west on Alligator Alley. By the time we got to Corkscrew Swamp it was raining. Waited half hour and no let-up so left and turned wrong way. Had to pull over for heavy rain. Learned it rained 5” on Pine Island just north of Sanibel. Stopped for groceries in Fort Myers Beach and on to Sanibel Island and Jolly Roger Motel. Should have stayed at The Reef next door. Down to the beach and the waves were 6ft High rolling in nearly to vegetation line. Walked about a mile new experience.
