Bonaventure is practically out in the middle of the Everglades. One of the only good things about Ft. Lauderdale is that it has a decent beach (though you have to pay to park).
If you’re not near the beach in Ft. Lauderdale (or on Las Olinas), then you might as well be in Ocala.
Thx for your input. As the late great Paul Harvey would say, you’ve given us “the rest of the story.”
