Two children found I cool place on one of the benches of Edison's winter estate. It is located beside Caloosahatchee River. The Caloosahatchee River is a river on the southwest Gulf Coast of Florida in the United States, approximately 67 miles (108 km) long.It drains rural areas on the northern edge of the Everglades, east of Fort Myers. An important link in the Okeechobee Waterway, a manmade inland waterway system of southern Florida, the river forms a tidal estuary along most of its course and has recently become the subject of efforts to restore and preserve the Everglades. The name origins from local indian tribe Caloosa and Hatchee which means "river' on their language.
