Approved by the Postmaster General & Duct Tape Inc. Usually, I feature a mailbox to talk about the community or part of Bonita Springs that the mailbox is located in. Well, this time this mailbox is located in Heitmans and technically the state streets, too. I’ve already covered those two areas of town so I’m [...]
Bonita Springs Real Estate is Escargoing Fast! That was funny to me! Anywho, my friend Lisa, a New Orleans Real Estate agent mentioned my mailbox posts in a Facebook comment. I realized that it has been a while since I posted one. Oddly, just days ago I ran into this little critter the other day [...]

Boating – Gulf Access Homes in Bonita Springs This mailbox picture was taken back in 2008. I just stumbled across it while looking for a totally different image on my Flickr account and thought I’d share. I just loved the fishing pole mail flag with lure. Classic “Bonita Springs Fishing Village” mailbox. This box was [...]
Forester Drive Near Kings Kew While driving down Hickory Blvd. last week I decided to drive by the home on Kings Kew with the Passaflora to see how their mailbox plant was doing. Yikes. Miracle Grow, buddy. Make friends with it. My inspiration was wilted and it looked like the caterpillars had found it at [...]
Barefoot Beach Bonita Beach This mailbox is in the community of Barefoot Beach. You’ll pass it on your way back to Barefoot Beach Preserve, the park at the end of The Community of Barefoot Beach.

One little post in a series about mailboxes or whatever I feel like yappin’ about on a Friday.
Things To Do in Estero & Bonita Springs Lee County Florida has some of the best libraries I’ve ever visited. If you’re in the Bonita Springs, Florida the library is on West Terry Street and if you’re in Estero Florida you’ll find a library just north of Corkscrew road on Three Oaks Parkway. Besides the [...]
Death Becomes the Postal Box Sometimes I have pretty busy days. A few weeks ago I had a few busy weeks that were chalk so full of rediculousness I don’t think I could have made it up if I tried. One random Friday on my way to a closing, after I picked my mom up [...]
Nerd on Nerd Hate Crimes By special request, a Mailbox Series post. I didn’t realize they were missed. I have pictures of more to put up, I’ve just been slacking. Here’s to getting back on track… At the north end of Hickory Boulevard in Bonita Springs, I have a listing on the beach. Like on [...]
She Don’t Call, She Don’t Write … Florida has its share of critters. I passed this mailbox the other day, a gray rainy day, and saw this frog hanging out. He was in Brendan Cove in Bonita Springs, Florida. I call these tree frogs. I don’t know if that is what they are. This kind [...]
Not a Bonita Springs Florida Mailbox Photo credit John Lauber One of the best selling features of Bonita Springs real estate is the snow up north. People from all over the Midwest come to our little part of Florida just to escape the winter weather. Yes, they came to Bonita Springs this winter, too. In [...]
Canal Front Gulf Access Mail Boxes This mailbox isn’t really in Bonita Shores, nor is it in Imperial Shores. Technically it’s in Riverdale Unrecorded but since Riverdale Unrecorded isn’t a commonly known name in Bonita Springs, Florida … I decided to use something more recognizable. Riverdale Unrecorded, Bonita Shores and Imperial Shores are all in [...]
This Old Mailbox This two dollar mailbox was found on Horne Avenue in Olde Bonita Springs. I wonder where it is now… Mailboxes are now like magnets to me. I can spot a good one a mile away. Sometimes it’s not a mile a way, it’s just next door. Last weekend I stopped by one [...]
A Back in the Day Mailbox & Post Office Did you know that the halls and walls of the Liles Hotel at Riverside Park are lined with old photos of Bonita Springs, Florida. I mean way old photos. The kind of photos you see in those books and think to yourself, boy, how did they [...]
Not Bonita Springs So I got away for the holidays last week and ended up being sick the majority of the time. Boo. I was in Northern Arizona and found this when I got lost and had to turn around in an auto parts store parking lot. Onward and forward back to Bonita Springs and [...]
East Bonita Springs Invasion I’ve snapped so many pictures of fun mailboxes in Bonita Springs that I kind of forgot where I took this one. I know it was off of East Terry Street on the right hand side, I think it was Allen Street but it could have been Jarvis Street. At any rate, [...]
J Christmas Dolphin at the Beach I’m digging his buddies by his feet, the most. This Christmas mailbox is just a little bit north of Doc’s Beachhouse beside on of the beach accesses. The back of the house is decorated with cute little bows you can see here: Bonita Beach Home
Santa Claus is Diggin’ The Mailbox Series Last week I took my fat, blind, old LBD for a walk and passed this home in Brendan Cove. Yes, I carry a camera with me everywhere. It’s the second home on the left through the gates on Driftwood Drive. There is a really good chance that this [...]
What Does The Mail Carrier Think? So what did the mail carrier think the first time he pulled up to this mailbox covered with sharks eating bloody Barbies? It may have not phased him…or her. The whole street has funny mailboxes. If you’re looking for the land of fun mailboxes, they’re located in Bonita Farms [...]
Farmer Mike’s Is O-P-E-N Farmer Mikes is open again (November 2012) Last week I learned that Farmer Mike’s traditionally opens the day after the Taste of Bonita festival. Since I was involved in the Taste of Bonita as a member of Rotary I was at the festival. My daughter brought me a bowl of fresh [...]
There Isn’t a Golf Course Within a Stone’s Throw Much like the huge joke we play on tourists and visitors regarding the US 41, Tamiami Trial, Cleveland Avenue, Ninth Street North multi-named street we have an area called Bonita Springs Golf and Country Club. There is no golf and no country club. There was but [...]
What Happened to The Mailboxes? They’ll be back. I just found this and thought it was funny enough to bump the mailboxes for a week. It’s located in the Lakes of Estero. The Lakes of Estero is a single family home community on River Ranch Road across the street from Estero High School. I was [...]
The Gorton’s Fisherman Yes, it’s true, the Gorton’s Fisherman lives on Hickory Blvd. on Bonita Beach. He’s a couple of doors down from the Mermaid Mailbox. It’s been a spell since I’ve taken this photo. It’s been a while since I’ve even been able to post something on the blog. I’ve been a hostage. The [...]
Tuesday Evening at Lakes of San Souci Since I didn’t receive any protest email or notes of concern I suppose nobody noticed that I missed last Friday’s mailbox. Was I out of ideas? No. Is there a creative mailbox embargo? No. I’ve been going through a crisis. My laptop, my bestest friend is dying. I’ve [...]
Old Bonita Springs Mailbox See that? That house in the background hiding behind the palm tree? There are about 20 of those houses in town. I know where some of them are. They were built about 25 years ago. I guess someone had a plan and just sprinkled them through town. They stand out a [...]
Nothing Runs Like a Deere, on a Post, Planted in Dirt When the storm called Fay (2008) came through Bonita Springs I took photos and did a little video to show people that mainstream media kind of has to sell commercial time and that we really were OK down here. Well, most of us were. [...]
Bonita Springs Mailbox Theme Number Two If it’s not fish, it’s parrots. In the last week I have found two parrot mailboxes. This parrot mailbox is in old Bonita Springs just off of Dean Street. I wish I had a bike. If I did I’d pedal my brains out all over those back streets. There [...]
Stuff a Big Check To The Red Cross in There! This week I cut down Pennsylvania Avenue in Bonita Springs to get to Dolly’s on Bonita Beach Road. I call the area, as do many others, the State Streets because they’re all, uh, named after states. I was driving down Michigan which connects Pennsylvania to [...]
Dead Fish Mailbox | Old Bonita Springs You were all holding your breath for the mailbox du jour, I just know it. Special thanx to a humongous issue with Quick Books and my extension looming in the not so distant future for getting me slightly derailed from the important things; blogging about mailboxes. I think [...]
This week has been a little hectic. For all the whiners who think southwest Florida is doomed rest assured that Bonita Springs real estate is, in fact, selling. There’s been enough activity to get me buried a little behind. Yeah, I heard the recent foreclosure reports about Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Sure the news [...]
Gull Haven and Bonita Farms For some reason I just keep hearing, “Mommy, where are my Lincoln logs”? I’m just glad I found a mailbox that wasn’t a fish shape, again. Hey, I’m a little bored looking at only fish mailboxes, too. This cute mailbox was found in Gull Haven or Bonita Farms in Bonita [...]
Friday is For Dolphis and Tall Ones Recently, I joined Rotary International. I’m having a great time meeting so many new people and getting involved with the community. Why did I join Rotary? To serve the community and to get out and meet people. Real people, not just the one’s living in my computer. A [...]
The Gorton’s Fisherman? | Bonita Springs, Florida This one is coming from my Flickr.com archives. I took it a while back right after the bug incident on Old 41 while I was running. The experience was so terrible I ended up running on Bonita Beach to avoid the gnats on the next run. That’s when [...]
Yes, Mail Goes In The “Bacon End” This little piggy went to Bonita Springs, not the market. I found this mailbox off of Windsor Road, just west of US 41. Know where Sneaky Pete’s is? It’s that street corner that you’ll turn. I’ve been taking the long way almost anywhere I go just to see [...]
Bonita Springs Mailbox Series Did you ever see such a patriotic Manatee mailbox? Me either. Bonita Springs has a ton of manatee mailboxes, by the way. They’re right up their with dolphin mailboxes. This is what a manatee is if you didn’t know: West Indian Manatee Facts. Last week one of my readers, the mysterious [...]
