We arrived in Ft. Myers ....

We set out for Ft. Myers today in preparation for the Lee County Senior Games Pickleball tournament.  Singles competition started tonight, but Rich is scheduled to play on Saturday in the doubles competition and again on Sunday in the mixed doubles.  I'm on the agenda for the weekend for refereeing the games.  Should be a fun weekend. 

We arrived somewhere around 4:30 and 5:00, checked in to the hotel and got unpacked and settled in.  When Rich was moving things from the small cooler to the refrigerator - we found that I had forgotten a couple of things.  One - his water bottle that he keeps with him while he's play and  even worse than that - I forgot to bring his medication!!!!! 

So we called the closest CVS.  What a great place to do business with!  They had us taken care of within a half hour from the time we called.   We took a ride to the Wa-Ke-Hatchee Recreation Center, where the tournament will be held, to make sure we knew how to get there.  Have to register at 8:00 am - so we didn't want to be late. 

Dinner tonight was at Mel's Diner.  It's directly across the street from our hotel on Tamiami Trail here in Ft. Myers.  Pictures above.  What a great menu!  I opted for the fish and Rich had a perfectly prepared Prime Rib. The place was packed full but the wait time was about 10 minutes to get a table, the service was excellent and the food was delicious!
