Of course they were not there, or in season, but that did not seem to matter to him. Fort Myers Beach reminded me a little of South Padre Island if you have ever been there.

Lee County, home of the Boston Red Sox Spring training facilities. We really enjoyed getting up close and personal with the field. We walked around the whole thing and tried to peek where we could. My husband loves to tour baseball fields, so this was right up his alley. I guess there really is not too much to say about it since they were not here and no games were going on. We just walked around and checked out the ballpark as much as we could.
