Six Mile Cypress Slough

Mar 23, 2019 | Adventures, Photography, Travel | 0 comments

The Six Mile Cypress Slough in Ft. Myers, Florida is a gem just outside of the downtown area. Worth the visit whenever you are in Southwest Florida. It was fascinating to see the collection of wildlife in this confined place. We saw so many birds and some turtles. As you can see in the images below, there was a lot out there to enjoy. It made for some great subpar weather activities.

We needed an opportunity to get away from the cold and to some nice beach time. Upon planning a trip to Southwest Florida we were in hopes of sun, water, and beach. The week leading up to our trip was in the mid 80s. Well, that was not the case when we arrived. It was raining upon our arrival with a forecast of rain and mid 60s all the next day. It would only be mid 70s during our stay. Yes, we found some beach time, but not quite what we were hoping for.

To make the best out of our trip to such a beautiful place we purchased some umbrellas from a thrift store. We then found some wildlife areas that we could check out. The slough was only about 20 minutes from the house that we were staying at. We ended up visiting this place on our rainy day and then one more time early morning on our departure day.
