Our next stop was Fleamasters Flea Market. It was quite a place- 900 stores! We prowled around for awhile and moved on.
Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve was next.These 2,500 acres are home to a diverse array of plant and animal communities. A boardwalk trail winds through about 80 acres.

We weren't finished yet- we moved on to Sun Harvest Citrus to buy fresh juice and ice cream. Orange juice and also Strawberry Orange juice- fresh and delicious. Our ice cream cones were a chocolate/key lime twist and and orange/vanilla twist- perfect after a hike in the swamp.
We returned to the boat for pizza. Having friends show us the sights was wonderful!
