Doc Ford

One day shortly after we moved here we were driving back from Bowman Beach on Sanibel and spotted a restaurant called Doc Ford's. It rang a bell with me, because somewhere I had picked up a book with a main character named Doc Ford. Sure enough, the restaurant was partly owned by Randy Wayne White the author of the Doc Ford Series. The restaurant quickly became one of our favorites... Dale likes the strong rum drinks, and I liked a restaurant where you could buy a novel! The food is great - it's a fun beach-type sports bar. And now they're opening another one at Fort Myers Beach!

We stopped in Saturday after our time at the beach and enjoyed ourselves as much as ever. I had two Sanibel Sunsets, and Dale had the Havana Rum Punch. We had the calamari - Dale claims it is the best he's ever had... the sauce was spicy cocktail with a horseradish kick.. yum.
