The Squire vacations in Florida

The Rockford Squire traveled along with the Altena family and friends for a quick winter getaway in Florida December 16 to 24. Their trip started out with a flight to Fort Myers and three days enjoying the beach and the restaurants, ending with the rest of the trip in Treasure Island. During their stay, they had a fantastic deep-sea fishing trip with a great haul of fish they had cooked for them by a local eatery. The group also visited Fort DeSoto and Honeymoon Island parks, where wildlife was abundant. In addition to seeing lots of osprey and a bald eagle, they saw many Michigan birds spending the cold-weather months in comfort. They didn’t see an alligator until the final day of their trip and were surprised to find a very large one in a populated St. Petersburg park. Armadillos were also on their list of hiking sights.
