Re: Fort De Soto Park, Florida – A Tropical Utopia

DrFumblefinger ·
A truly beautiful place! I imagine the kayaking and fishing are quite good. Are there any alligators about/ Is it a first come, first serve campground, or are reservations allowed?

No worries about running across any gators, they like fresh water and Ft. DeSoto is salt water, but there are sharks! Reservations are recommended at the campground, especially during the winter and spring months. The summer...

This is a beautiful beach. Is it a daft question to ask if there are alligators around? I'm Australian, and our more northern beaches get huge crocodiles as well as sharks, so I'm not quite sure if the same goes for alligators in Florida!

Hi Jessica! While it is not impossible, it is quite rare to see a gator at this beach, I only know of one time that a gator was ever spotted there, and that was only a 3.5 ft long one. It is much more likely that you'll see a shark before seeing a gator

I'll add this fort to the To Do List - my husband loves old forts! And we're passing through Manitoba on our way back to Toronto in late August or early September. Is there anything else to do in Manitoba? I heard the zoo is really good.

There's lots of good stuff to seen and do in Manitoba. How many days will you be there and exactly when is your visit?

Not sure, and not sure. We're on a working roadtrip in our 30 foot RV. Been in California for a month for work and will do another 4 weeks in Silicon Valley. Then we'll leisurely make our way back home to Toronto visa Washington, Oregon, and into Canada. So we don't set days or time limits on our travels - just to make meetings and the like!

When you know more specifics, I'll be happy to help you with itinerary. Generally speaking interesting things to see: 1) Forks Market. The brand new Canadian Museum of Human Rights might be open when you visit, which is in the Forks area. 2) Legislative Building 3) Winnipeg Art Gallery (largest collection of eskimo/Inuit carvings in the world) 4) Lower Fort Gary... And there are more, time allowing.

Beautiful landscapes DrF. I especially like the stone walls and dwellings. There are similar ones in Malta except they are made of limestone

The landscapes of the Dingle Peninsula are truly beautiful and memorable. What will especially stick with me are the many rocks and stones and how they were used -- fences, beehive huts, even a grand old church (Gallarus Oratory). I become more and more intrigued by Malta ever day, IslandMan. It is quickly moving up my travel list!

Slea Head on The Dingle Peninsula is one of my favorite places in the world, even though it is not in Italy. The Slea Head Cafe is also one of my favorite places for a latte, a brownie, and the VIEW. The coffee and dessert. Between Sea Head and Dingle Town is the Stonehouse Restaurant, which overlooks the Dingle Bay. The crabmeat sandwich on brown bread was really good along with the view.

Thanks for those very helpful comments, rbciao! I definitely need to try that crabmeat sandwich at the StoneHouse restaurant next time we're there. I was extremely pleased with how helpful and pleasant the StoneHouse staff were!

IslandMan. Those limestone megalithic stones in Malta got me. I heard a passing tour guide telling folks "Where that man is standing is a fertility temple" Whoooa ! Too late .. first kid 9 months later - to the day !

Too late .. first kid 9 months later - to the day ! GarryRF. Any megalithic stone that can make a man carry and deliver a child for 9 months has earned my respect -- and a place in medical history!

It is an interesting idea, and would be one of the most unique hotel properties in the world if the idea is well executed.

If it could be truly secure, it would be an amazing place to experience a storm! Although, I think there are many of us who would be uncomfortable no matter how secure…

Tofino on Vancouver Island is a great place to storm watch. You do so from the comfort of your lodge.

I didn't know this history about California and I find it very interesting. I love to visit state and national historic sites; they offer such insight into America's complex history! Thank you for a great post!
