Yeah, between the boat races and the VP (will be in Sanibel just across the water), it's going to be a real chit show out there. You will have the following water authorities out there in their boats; Sanibel Police, Ft. Myers, Caper Coral, FWC, Coast Guard, Immigration, Lee Co. and Coast Guard helicopters, Secret Service and I probably forgot one or two. I'm hanging poolside this weekend.
Stay safe everyone!!!

Where the VP stays you will not even know he is there unless you pick the right canal and you will know in a hurry, don’t ask me how I know. When you see the khaki pants and polo shirts walking the docks don’t throw a bait under the the dock and pull out a snook. They were not to thrilled, needless to say.

During Obama's term Biden had a vacation home here right next to the Sand bar everyone goes to on the weekend. More than half the boats would run right by the house but it was obvious when he was there. A lot more security than we normally see on the water.
