We are travelers and travel bloggers. Here at this blog, we'll tell you about places we've been that we think will be of interest to other travelers. Whether on the road in our RV, taking a non-RV vacation or simply investigating our local surroundings, we are constantly discovering new places and things to do, and we love sharing those discoveries with you.

Happy Trails!

Matlacha and Bokeelia Florida

Matlacha and Bokeelia are small towns? villages? on Pine Island, just north of Fort Meyers and west of Punta Gorda. The word "matlacha" means "water to the chin" and I guess that's about right because it's very much right at sea level.

Matlacha has funky shops and galleries and lots of waterfront restaurants. Pine Island is more of a fisherman's haven, as it doesn't have beaches. But even if you aren't a fisherman, it's a fun place to visit if you are in this area.

Here are some photographs from Matlacha and Bokeelia.

Colorfully painted houses and shops

Funky galleries

Wild Child Gallery - great art and beautiful sculptures, jewelry and gifts

Blue Bottle yard art sculptures and a pretty good painting of Johnny Depp!

Fun Florida Fashion

Bokeelia - at the end of the island. When you look across from here you are looking at Boca Grande on Gasparilla Island.

Beautiful gallery at the end of the road in Bokeelia.

Dick made a new friend in Matlacha :)
