This was a great summer when I spent a week or so with my Ft. Myers family. Although we only lived a few hours away from each other, we rarely got to spend time together, so any time together was special. This particular summer I remember taking a bus from Tampa to Ft. Myers. Among many other activities, my cousin Betty and I spent our days hunting coconuts (yes, coconut trees grow in Ft. Myers, FL) and after a laborious effort, were able to drink the refreshing and tasty milk from the fruit. To this day I can/will only eat fresh coconut meat and do not like the dried stuff…ewe!
I believe it was during this trip that my cousins Steve and Scott, along with some of their friends took me with them to see the newly released Star Wars. I LOVED that movie…classic!
