Relaxing, fishing, crabbing, and fun in the sun..

My family and I arrived and were struck by the fact that things were as published in the ad. The house was comfortable, clean, and the pool was the size we expected, clean and screened in so you can still feel the gulf breeze on occasion. The rental came with crab traps, which we caught crabs with them daily. They were of course, awesome! We have pictures of sting rays swimming in the channel, the kids were catching fish, and with the help of the state water patrol, we identified the caught fish. We took our jet ski out in the gulf, anchored down, did more fishing. We drove to Pine Island, Hudson beach, Hernando beach, Clearwater beach you name it we did about as much as we could. The BBQ pit even functioned 100%, which as dumb as it sounds, is rare.. We BBQed in the awesome Florida weather as much as we could. Operator error stranded our jet ski on the dock, and John and his wife came to the rescue, towing our ski to the ramp so I could get it out and fix the problem I had created. They didn't even charge us to tow our ski! Find that at a large corporate conglomerate, just isn't going to happen. Not one person in our large family wanted to return home, we all wanted to live and stay in FL.. We will return to John's Place again some day. This experience has changed our outlook on life greatly! Enough so that my wife and I are in the process of purchasing a sail boat. :D The only thing we truly regretted was not scheduling more time!
