Nice day in Naples and Ft. Myers

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

One more night in Ft. Myers and then we go back to Orlando tomorrow and fly back to Mexico on Thursday.

Yesterday we looked at about 6 properties in Cape Coral and got an idea what a life style there would be like living on a canal with a boat. It would be a nice lifestyle as well. We were afraid that the hot heat would bother us but really it hasn't been as bad as we thought it might be. Anyway, it's fun to dream of doing something else but there would be selling our current homes (3 in Ajijic, Mexico) and all kinds of things to consider. I am doubtful that we will move back to the states but it has given us much to think about.

Today we drove to Naples and had a great day. We ate at Handsome Harry's Bistro which was recommended by a sparks buddy. It was great. I had a gluten free chicken salad that was just wonderful.

I have been so thankful for my health holding out and a little proud of myself if I must say so as I really was careful about my food and didn't eat gluten, dairy, night shades and very little sugar. I will admit that there were several times I really wanted to enjoy a beer but stayed away.

I hope you all are doing great. This is the last night hopefully for crappy internet. I think where we stayed at the Marriott Courtyard near the airport the first night was better so perhaps I will have time to catch up with some of your blogs.
Hope you are all doing great.

    I gotta tell ya, Sallie! We rock the Gulf Coast and the breezes are sweet. Our beaches are fantastic. I'd rather be here during the summer than up north! I also prefer to vacay in state! Just sayin'...
