FORT MYERS BEACH, Fla. - Tourists in southwest Florida aren't letting the sunshine state's cold temperatures keep them away from the sand, bundling up before heading to the beach.
Temperatures dipped into the 40's Tuesday morning and raising to the mid-50's by the afternoon - but still tourists were laying out on the beach by 10:30 a.m.
"Its still pretty out even though the natives probably think we're crazy for being out here," said Carroll Blair, a tourist from Indiana.
Some groups WINK talked to said they were going for a walk on the beach and then going to a tanning salon before heading back out of town.
Temperatures are expected to continue to dip into the week.
