What we did this weekend: racing golf carts on Palm Island and wading in Lemon Bay

By | June 15th, 2009

Great day for a swim

We headed over to Florida’s West Coast this weekend, where we explored the islands around Port Charlotte.


Aren waded into the bay to look for critters in the sea grass at Cedar Point Environmental Park. There was plenty for him and some friends to scoop up and show off to his brother and sister.

No cars are allowed at Palm Island Resort — but they have golf carts. And they go fast. The kids took one for a joyride.

Thanks to our friends in Port Charlotte, Palm Island and Leverock’s for showing us around this weekend. We had a great time.

You can see more videos and photos of our adventures at Souvenirist and on Flickr.
