In the Fort Myers-Estero area of SWF, the local year round residents enjoy having our own lanes and only infrequently need to share. From mid February to Easter weekend is the peak snowbird season with various flocks seen everywhere, but mostly seen at Publix and Costco parking lots. The few public pool lap swims are more active as well. So today I had to laugh to myself when I was just about to start Set 2 (the IM set that I did later on as Set 3), I got a tap on my shoulder and at the same time my nearly deaf water filled ears heard nothing, but I saw the lips saying "Can we split the lane?" Of course I smiled and said yes, then got ready for a freestyle swim on the left side.


Having lived here for over two years I can appreciate the revenue the seasonal residents bring to the area, as nearly one third of my gated community along with other similar neighborhoods in south Fort Myers are part-time homeowners, from all around the USA, and also many from Canada.

    And Spring Training has started, so you have an influx of Red Sox and, I assume, Twins fans in town.

    That might partly explain the late February to March surge in Minnesota, Michigan, and Massachusetts vehicle license plates on the roads and in the parking lots.
