Punta Gorda, 18 miles east is Paradise Park an Airstream park. We were fortunate enough that our friends Phil and Joanie have a place here and their next door neighbor was gone so we were able to spend a couple of nights on their lot. Very nice secluded park with their own 9 hole golf course, a lake with their own alligator and a swimming pool. They show movies every Sunday night right after the ice cream social. We were lucky, they were showing "The Help" which we had not seen. A great movie, we highly recommend it to everyone.
While there we visited the Manatee Park, amazing creatures. They are a little shy so not very good pictures, luckily they have to come up now and then for air.
Boy, sometimes they can move really fast, you have to be quick to get their picture
Can you see them, there are three of them having a little disagreement
Here is a better picture of a picture
Nice little park, safe travels to all
