A look at the forth of July

Well, the big 4th of July weekend is at hand.  From the bait shops to the eateries, local businesses are at the ready to meet the shopping requirements of the holiday partiers.  

The harbor will be full of excited fishermen looking for that big SILVER KING (Mr. Tarpon), Watermelon stands along the roadsides will be loaded with this seasonal favorite.  Rumor has it that there are even some "Georgia Peaches" to be had along the road.

Speaking of the road, it sure is nice to drive down the roads and see most cars with a Florida tag on it.  Our snowbirds are gone, but we fondly await their return.  

On the 4th, the annual FREEDOM SWIM is set to start at 2:00.  What a great tradition in Punta Gorda.  From the sleek Speedo clad racers to the noodle bobbing fun seeker, the mix of talent is a sight to see.  

Speaking of GREAT TRADITIONS, the fireworks on the 4th will again make the crowds woo and Aha!  No doubt, the fireworks over the smooth waters of the Peace river are fitting way to celebrate our National Birthday.

With the national news coverage of BREXIT, one can expect the current LOW interest rates to stay put for the foreseeable future.  No doubt this is a great time to be looking for that new home.  Now is the time, avoid the winter rush to see our inventory... And finally, we wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.  

On behalf of the  entire staff at the Fishermen's Village office of Coldwell Banker Sunstar Realty,

We all wish you a fun filled and safe Holiday as you celebrate our great country's birthday.
