An enjoyable ride through the less-developed inner Florida. Once I had left the Fort Myers/Cape Coral area behind me and was heading east on route 78, it was a very relaxing ride all the way to LaBelle. I should probably have circled back at that point, but instead decided to head down Route 80 to Lake Okechobee. This was not so pleasant with lots of big trucks and side winds. I got all the way to Clewiston before turning round and heading back to the Fort Myers area.

Next time, when I get to LaBelle, I will take the more northern Route 78 eastbound and see where that takes me.

Very happy that I wear a full face helmet, as the bugs were quite prolific!
