With a bit of time to spare on a recent afternoon, I took my camera and went for a walk along one of the busiest roads in Port Charlotte, Florida...Kings Highway. This connector goes all the way from Charlotte Harbor to Arcadia, with much of it bordered by storm water catch basins and nice sidewalks. A perfect place to see some of our natural world thriving in this urban environment.
You can only get to Cayo Costa by boat, either private or by ferry from Pine Island, or by tour boat from Punta Gorda. Here is the Island Star out of Punta Gorda (and part of the Kingfisher Fleet) off loading at the park dock.
