Today is a great day because our youngest grandson, Leo, turns 5! We love you and miss you, Leo!
Today we drove over to Marco Island, an easy 12 mile drive. Lots of beautiful homes, big apartments and condos, and not much parking for visitors! We were headed to the South Beach area, and after a few false starts, we did get into a parking spot. Barely! Driving the truck around in tight places is a challenge, makes me wish we could just retract a portion of the truck bed so we could squeeze in short spots! But we had easy access to the public beach, which was a large stretch of fine white sand dotted with umbrellas and awnings and chairs and kids digging in the sand. Perfect! We found “our perfect spot” and settled in with our chairs and books. It was a bit windy at times, and we saw some of the beach umbrellas turning inside out, so we left ours back in the truck.
It was a nice long stretch of beach for walking, too, so we took turns doing that. We talked to some family members (Art and Sharon) who vacation here often, and got a lunch recommendation that we followed up on. We went to Snook Inn and loved their grouper sandwiches. Then, we headed back towards our camp site at the state park, stopping for groceries and gas along the way. Neither of us had much need of a regular meal for supper, so ate some baguette with butter and enjoyed some TV time before bed. This spot is fairly quiet, but the opposite side of the campground is quite close to a road. I’m really glad we ended up where we did. We like to be able to sleep with some windows open if we can, and the noise didn’t disturb us.
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
