I happened to click on an advertisement yesterday and found a wonderful place to spend the winter. Check out Pelican Lakes Rv Resort. It is in Naples, Florida, on the south Gulf coast of Florida. It’s a beautiful area.
If you like the place, you can purchase a lot. They have quite a few lots for sale, but you’d better hurry because they’re selling fast.
Here is the one Al and I’ve picked out.
Or maybe this one?
Here is the listing for my personal favorite.
Can you see the price? Yes, you read it right. It is $549,000! No, that does NOT include the motor home!
Here you can see how spacious the lots are, even after you’ve parked your Mercedes and coach.
It really is a beautiful resort and Naples is a very beautiful part of Florida, but it is definitely an area for the rich. Naples is on the Gulf Coast, right across the Peninsula is the Palm Beach area. Both are known to be the home of the rich and famous.
If you haven’t yet been to Palm Beach, it’s a must see when in Florida. It’s a barrier island, and not to be confused with West Palm Beach. There are many, many multi-million dollar mansions which are just used as vacation homes. Al and I couldn’t even afford what they spend on their gardeners! You find homes belonging to the very, very rich. One time we were there King Hussein of Jordon was remodeling his mansion. Of course that is also where Donald Trump has his luxury Mar-a-Lago Resort, which was the former home of Marjorie Merriweather-Post. You might also run into Rush Limbaugh while there.
If you get over to Palm Beach, bring your bicycles and you can ride around the (lake) on a beautiful bicycle trail which is behind the mansions on the inter-coastal waterway, which is the “lake.” We used to rollerblade there and it was a wonderful way to get some exercise and get a peek at the way the rich and famous live. You may run into some celebrities too! Say hello to The Donald for me! While on the island, head over to Worth Avenue for a little shopping. Have you ever seen a $800 straw hat? We did! Now the reason it was so expensive was because it had Fringe! No, the fringe was not made of gold, just regular run of the mill straw hat fringe! Another fun thing to do on the Island is take a boat tour. The boats run on the inter-coastal side (lake) and you can see the mansions from the water with a guide telling you who lives where. We loved visiting Palm Beach.
There are no campgrounds of any sort on Palm Beach, but you could stay at the The Breakers Hotel.
Gotta, go now and check my lottery tickets because we only made $76 on our garage sale yesterday….of course we closed up shop at 10:30.
