about fort myers beach: Driven Island family raises home from the dead - 06/22/09 03:16 PM
Sometimes I take a look at some of the homes I have sold in Fort Myers Beach. There is a such home on Delmar which has been transformed throughout the last couple of years. Yes, it was close to being an eye sore.Lets say it had an overall island charm buts its days were numbered.    
  The owners have a bit of an edge as the husband is the President of "Flowers Construction Services" and his wife is not afraid to give a hand whenever possible. That is when they are not taking care of their young three children, running the business … (3 comments)

about fort myers beach: Fort Myers Beach is pet friendly, others are not - 01/24/09 12:20 PM
Not that many cities in Southwest Florida are pet friendly. Why the beaches of Bonita Springs and Naples are not is question to debate. The reasons why they are not are obvious.Still, I would think that each city should have a small portion of their long beach frontage reserved for our pets. That is one man’s opinion. Some stretches of Sanibel beaches and 3/4 of our seven miles shore line are pet friendly. Pets are friends in Fort Myers Beach On the Island of Fort Myers Beach or Estero island we have rules and aside from the few bad apples, our residents … (0 comments)

Sometimes your are surprised. This unusual home is located near the mid island of Fort Myers Beach on 178 Jefferson St.When you drive by you notice immediately the chimney, the gable roof  lines, the large rounded windows and the mature landscaping. Much of the garden is hidden behind a peek a boo white fence.

Friends and family members often argue which side they prefer. The beach with its seven miles of sand, the salt in the air, the lively pubs, the to and fro of the waves,the burned bodies glistening with oils, the immense sea where the eye gets lost at the horizon,sandpipers, seagulls, the sudden jet skies or power boats breaking the grandiose blue and green with foamy white lines, sea shells calling your attention, dolphins playfully hoping up and down, the ever changing sun sets brushing of red and orange the proud Sanibel island from afar ...

By the enormous 70 plus billion dollar debt AIG, the largest insurer in the US is facing?

about fort myers beach: Going Wild - 09/08/08 02:11 PM
I first met Azi some four years ago when he moved near my home, to a triplex. He was saving as much as he could and finally in December 2006, he accomplished his dream. He opened "Going Wild," a Fort Myers Beach boutique located at the corner of Crescent street and Estero Boulevard. After a few obligatory years in the Israeli Army, he took a gamble and moved to Miami in his early 20's and learned about retail and professional painting from his uncle. Fort Myers Beach seemed the natural choice to start his new life.

     Like many I have a place of refuge and a place where we can have "fun" or refill my batteries.
When I lived in large cities like New York I used to go to Central Park or stay on top of my building roof top
and kick back and look at the Empire State Building. The noise of the city was always omnipresent and vibrant.
When I moved to Fort Myers Beach of course I was looking for the feel of the sand under the feet and the … (3 comments)

about fort myers beach: Who will win at the US Open? Fort Myers Beach plays tennis! - 08/30/08 02:40 PM
How was that possible? A clay specialist winning on grass? There are two major reasons:  The grass at Wimbledon is not as fast as before, and secondly:  Rafa has improved his serve dramatically and added a nasty sliced backhand to his now enormous talent. Oh yea I forgot, the guy can run! 
Tennis fascinates me, epecially,the mental aspect of it . Its amazing how much you learn about people just by playing a few sets against them.When I was 16 I went pretty high in a few tournaments in France in a para-professinal league.  One year later, I knew I was not going to make … (2 comments)
