Vanderbilt Mail Beacon

In the quest to capture Southwest Florida mailboxes I ran across this lighthouse mailbox. Hey, it's Southwest Florida. The city of Bonita Springs is peppered with unique mailboxes, the likes of which are mostly nautical themed, fish themed, boat themed, lighthouse themed or ocean themed. I feel like Forest Gump; shimp gumbo, shrimp scampi, shrimp creole...

Today's lighthouse mailbox is sponsored by a lovely canal front, gulf access home just off of Vanderbilt Bay. It's at the far end down by The Ritz Carlton hotel and Pelican Bay. For those of you curious, Vanderbilt Bay offers gulf access via Wiggins Pass, just 20-30 minutes idle speed away. Most of the Vanderbilt area is no more than a 10-15 minute bike ride to the white, sugar sand beaches of Vanderbilt. Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park is located on the gulf at Vanderbilt Beach, too.
