Wordless Wednesday: Robert Is Here is a Must When Visiting Everglades National Park
Robert Is Here! No, not “here” but there in Florida City which is the gateway to Everglades National Park. opens in a new windowRobert Is Here is the name of the fruit stand where Robert, when he was a kid, set up a small fruit and veggie stand. People would stop and ask, “Is Robert here?” Hence, the inspiration for the favorite fruit and veggie stand which is a must-stop attraction when heading into Everglades National Park’s main entrance.
It’s a place to try exotic fruits you’ve probably never heard of or even tasted. It’s where I first tried a fruit that tasted like chocolate pudding (black sapote) and gained appreciation for South Florida’s agriculture.
If there’s one thing to purchase at Robert Is Here it’s a tropical fruit milkshake. Key lime is a must. C’mon, it’s Florida! Since I’ve had plenty of key lime milkshakes in my day, I opted for key lime-cherry during my visit last month, the perfect mix of sweet and tart.
Enjoy these images of one of my favorite things I enjoyed when living in Flamingo in Everglades National Park.
