Bonita Springs Riverfront Real Estate

Home on the Imperial River in Bonita Springs Florida

Bright and early on a Tuesday morning I decided to take a break from real estate for a few hours.  I grabbed Slum Dawg Dillionaire took a paddle trip up the Imperial River in Bonita Springs. We took off out of Riverside Park and headed east, up the river. 

Usually I get to see the riverfront homes from the interior but today was just viewing them from the water.  I’ve been in a lot of homes over the 15 years I’ve sold real estate so I’ve been in a lot of the homes on the Imperial River and canals.  Gulf access real estate is popular in Bonita Springs.  It is, after all, the reason so many people move to this area; fishing, water sports, sun bathing, everything Florida.

Today, the river was quiet.  It was early and not many people were stirring.  The trip was to the Imperial Parkway Bridge and back.  The current was ripping. We’ve had a lot of rain and they are releasing water from Lake Okachobee Oh-pa-CHOPE-ee.  (That’s how little kids say it here) That makes for some turbulent bends in the river.  It was hard work getting there and an easy glide back to Riverside Park.  I managed to take a few pictures on the way back and this is one of my favorites, of course starring my dog with a view of the Bamboo Village bridge and Everglades Wonder Gardens in the distance.
