Dining on the Water

Hello everyone!

One of the best things about visiting and living in Southwest Florida is the waterfront dining. In this issue, I feature 3 local favorites.

Although oysters are the specialty, I ordered and thoroughly enjoyed my Mahi Sandwich with Pineapple Cole Slaw and Fries at the Oyster House at Cape Harbour, located in the former Pignoli on the Harbour restaurant.

If you sit outside, you can look at the boats docked in Cape Harbour Marina. Shop and stroll before or afterwards, or enjoy live music.

5785 Cape Harbour Dr, Cape Coral (239)599-2947

I used to love going to The Sandy Hook out on Matlacha to watch the mullet jumping.

The restaurant is now called Yucatan and has new owners, a renovation with more water front tables, delicious seafood ...... and of course, great water views.

BTW - I had their yummy Fish Tacos!

4875 Pine Island Rd, Matlacha (239) 283-0113

For the best Fish Tacos I've had yet, go to The Nauti Mermaid at the Cape Coral Westin. They're made with Blackened Mahi and topped with Cabbage, Pickled Red Onion, Jack Cheese, and Spicy Avocado Crema!

You will also love the water views of Tarpon Point Marina.

5961 Silver King Blvd, Cape Coral (239) 541-5600

My next newsletter will come out in June. :)

Happy Spring!

For those of you who have read Weird Cape Coral, but haven't found the treasure yet, here are some hints:

Look for 3 places in the ebook where it says "treasure" in blue. Click on it, because each is a link to one of 3 pages on my website.

Each page is a place that I think is a treasure in Cape Coral.

Once you figure out the 3 places, email me from my Contact Me page and I will send you a password to a secret page with more information about buying real estate here in Cape Coral.

Have fun.......if you need help -> Contact Me
