Getting ready to roll...

On the way to return our rental car to the airport in Fort Meyers we took a side trip to Casperen Beach in search of sharks teeth that wash up on the beach. The shark tooth hunters are all but "professionals" with their sifters and pails, and some wading out into the deeper water with their gear to get the teeth before they hit shore I suppose. Little have I known what a gold mine I must have in a wine bottle that I have moved around with me for about (a lot of) years! The teeth we college students found back in the day at Chesapeake Beach in Maryland are not black as they are here in south Florida, but they are bigger. And we did not have to sift, or even hunt very hard -- they were just there.

The only photos for the day are of the egret that was at the shark tooth hunting grounds.
 From the airport we had to take a (pricey) taxi ride to Naples and the hotel meeting place for our tour. We 24 folks gathered for our welcome and info meeting before being driven to dinner. We have eleven states and one province (Ontario) represented, and of course Dorothy and I have come the farthest distance.

Amy will lead us on the bike tour, and is the owner of the bike shop that will provide our bikes. We go for bike choosing and fitting tomorrow morning, then a ride around Naples.
