   Coming up the Caloosahatchee River from San Carlos Bay, turn hard to the northwest just past red 92 to enter the Glover Bight channel. Follow it around Cattle Dock Point to the right.
   Anchor in the bay just past the marina (which has a ship's store, showers, a laundromat, pump-out and fuel). There's plenty of water, but watch out for the bars.
