No Fish Mailboxes to Fry in Spring Creek

A few days ago, after I checked on a listing I have in Eldorado Acres I cruised up Spring Creek to hunt for mail boxes on the Fish Streets. If you don't know what the Fish Streets are: When you head up Coconut Road toward the Hyatt and turn left on Spring Creek Drive it winds through and over The Colony and Pelican Landing back to the Fish Streets. Right on Spring Creek and Estero Bay is a network of streets that are all named after fish: Swordfish, Jackfish, Sailfish, Kingfish and Dolphin.

Most of the homes are gulf access via Spring Creek. The homes are of various styles, ages and are not deed restricted. It's just a quiet little neighborhood with one way in and one way out, unless you count Spring Creek in a boat.

Well, my mailbox hunt was a bust in Spring Creek and the Fish Streets. I figured I'd at least get a handful of Fish shaped mailboxes, but nada, nothing, zip. On my way out I stopped under this lovely Jacaranda tree and took a picture of it through my sun roof. Ah, the good old days, before my car got creamed in traffic. Boo!

If you're thinking of finding a cute little cottage on a gulf access waterway take a look at the fish streets. Homes start in the $300,000's. The homes next door in Spring Creek Village are slightly more affordable.
