Our Last Full Day in the Naples Area!

Ken and I were up at 6:30, cooked breakfast, and took a walk around the CG.  We left at 9 to meet at Barry and Deb's campsite to go together to the Farmer's Market on Marco Island.  On the way to meet them we talked to our daughter, Jamie.  She had checked our house to make sure the furnace was working and that there was enough oil in the tank.  All was well.  We certainly appreciate her willingness to stop in occasionally and make certain everything is working properly!

The 4 of us rode in their car to Marco Island.  Not a great day for an outdoor market - mild, but rainy!  The market was very impressive - lots of fresh fruits and veggies, crafts, cheese, etc.  We had fun stocking up, especially on the delicious fruit.  So glad Barry and Deb had suggested we go there!

A busy place even on a rainy day!

So many beautiful flowers including Ken's favorite,
Bird of Paradise!

Lots of special cheeses!
From there we headed to the local Dunkin Donuts for some hot drinks and time for chatting.  Then we stopped at the local hardware store and The Kitchen Store so I could look for a few things I needed for Waldo!  We decided to stop at Joey's Pizza for lunch for some of the best pizza we have ever eaten.  Their specialty is a pizza with sausage and it really is soooo good!  Ken and I had pizza there last year and we were so happy to share this "experience" with Deb and Barry.  

Barry and Deb enjoy time at Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts
for their specialty drinks!

If you are on Marco Island, you must try their delicious Pizza!

Back to their CG by 3:30 where we said our good-byes, having had such a wonderful week together.  It went so quickly.  I am not sure that we will see them again until next year in Florida, but we always look forward to our time together!  They were the 1st people to share a meal and happy hour with us in Waldo.  Maybe we need a plaque with their names on it!!!!!

When we got back to Waldo, Ken started packing up for our departure tomorrow morning.  I went to the laundromat so that wouldn't be the 1st thing I had to do when we got to Pine Island.  Talked to Nancy Savage, our friends from Lanc. Co. who have been at Pine Island since last Sunday.  We will share time with them at Pine Island for the next 1 1/2 weeks.  She told me that the husband of the minister lady in the CG died from a heart attack at Christmas.  What a shock!  Ken and I had talked with her for 1/2 an hour when we were there in Nov.  He had died very unexpectedly and was in his 60's.  So sad!  

We spent the evening packing up some things inside Waldo and relaxing watching TV.  Love this area but are very excited to go to Pine Island where we will spend time with 5 camping friends we meet there each year - Nancy and Neil, Melissa and Chuck, Betsy and Coy, Paul and Regina, and Sandy and Ed.  We will have such a good time.
