East coast or west coast? I am fascinated by trying to determine how people figure out which they prefer. Both have pros and cons, of course.
So we drove from Fort Pierce to Port Charlotte by way of Rte 70 via Okeechobe and Arcadia. It is absolutely unnecessary to turn the steering wheel a degree, and one could possibly believe that you’d been transported to Texas or Oklahoma! It has a very strong western feel with lots of cattle and horses grazing in pastures, and cowboy hats, jeans and boots are the common attire.
I immediately fell in love with our Airbnb rented loft in Port Charlotte where we stayed for three nights.
We made a little trip up to Osprey to meet up with friends for lunch at Casey Key Fish House which was lovely – sitting outside on the deck at the water’s edge.
