Seffner, Florida (high 72, low 52)
Boy what a shock! We had a very unusual cold front and when we got up it was 58 degrees this morning! Time to turn on the heater! We love this cool weather but unfortunately it’s going to warm up quickly.
We didn’t get to explore Naples much, but we did check out Lake San Marino Rv Resort, for a possible future visit. They are advertising a special for the months of April and May for $225 a month. We drove through the park and found it to be pretty nice. It looks like it’s a French Canadian snowbird park and there were lots still there. I can’t say that I blame them!
There were a lot of park model permanent sites but still plenty of rv lots.
We decided we probably liked Club Naples Rv resort better. We stayed there at site J7 for one night. It was a “pull through” site, but with our rig, the toad would have sat in the street. Yes…it could have been a little longer. The site would have been too narrow with neighbors on both sides, but was fine for one night.
If we go back, we picked out site I20. Many of the sites were a bit on the short site, but there was some wooded areas and we saw a lot of birds throughout the park. It would be a nice place to stay and explore Naples.
We left Naples around noon and headed north towards Tampa. We had a lot of wind and it was kind of stressful. Al was staying around 55 mph but the winds kicked up more as we approached Tampa, so he slowed down to 50 and it was much better.
Lazy Days invited us to a free “Friends and Family” rally for 3 nights starting Wednesday. I also had an expired coupon for 2 nights free camping. I gave it to them, thinking I had nothing to lose….and guess what? Yep, we got two more nights free! We have sure gotten to be cheapskates since we started full timing!
So, we’re happily settled into Lazy Days Campground for 5 nights, then we’ll be off to a campground nearer to Mom.
Al is working today and I’m going to go visit Mom.
It’s back to reality, I guess.
