There is a great dog beach in southern Florida on the Gulf coast, Bonita Beach Dog Park. You can take your dog there, as long as it is friendly and sociable. That describes our black lab, Cool Hand Luke, AKA Luka. We brought him on a recent trip to Florida. It was like taking your kids to Disney World! The dog beach is just south of the very famous beach area of Fort Myers Beach. On our way out, we happened to pass by a great store.
We just had to pull over and check out the Salty Dog Gallery.
Have you ever instantly felt “at home” when you walked into a store? That is the only way I can think of describing this place. The owners, so real, warm and friendly are on premises. They invite you to look around and we were instantly delighted. Treasures are found in every corner, above and below and yet, its airy and uncluttered – nautical gifts and antiques, unique artisans signs, sculptures, one of a kind furniture, unusual dog and cat gifts, and so much more in this tropical feel gallery. Do you secretly love mermaids? You’ll find them here in rare works of art.
Carla told us the store is in its new location, at 2555 Estero Blvd (the main beach road) in Fort Myers Beach, Florida as of this past Thanksgiving. They only moved a short distance from their previous location, but have more room. If you are in the area, I definately recommend that you stop in. Prepare to be delighted and amazed around every corner! You will want to tell your friends of this great find. Please tell Carla and Peter that you heard about their great gallery on our blog. …and say hello to their “Salty Dog,” Brady!
