Explore - Dinghy Style!

Thinking of home - enjoying Naples!

Since we are still on the mooring ball in Naples – today was dinghy exploration afternoon!  This morning we walked downtown and saw the commercial side of Naples plus I needed to find a post office…there is a special girl in my life with an upcoming 2nd birthday!!

This tree was HUGE & the ornaments were as big as my hand!
A few turns later and we were in the “picture postcard” side of town – just in time for lunch!  We found EJ’s Café and it was a great diner atmosphere!  I enjoyed my meal while sitting in a shady spot outside with the breeze blowing and people watching!  Charlie opted for a breakfast skillet and was equally satisfied with his very diner-like cuisine.
1/4 fresh pineapple stuffed with tuna, a side of cottage cheese & tomato wedge. And a slice of banana bread!  Y. U. M.!!
Probably the most photographed building in town!
A quick stop at the boat, we changed clothes and back into the dinghy for a self-guided tour!  The fun of visiting a town where water travel is equally sufficient to land…GOOD TIMES!!
We aren't on the TN-Tom - for sure!!

New neighborhood just under the 9' bridge!

At dusk we are tucked safely on The Lower Place and The Side Yard (dinghy) is secured on board as well.  A little outside cleaning and inside engine check gives us peace of mind for a morning departure to Ft. Myers.  I’m not sure when we will depart nor how long it will take us but it's a one day journey – pending no complications.

 Be safe, be blessed and hug someone…go ahead, you know you want to!!
