today was the most relaxed day on our trip. Only 260 Miles - left the hotel at 8:30 this morning and headed direction Fort Myers to pick up Claudia at the airport. We arrived 10 minutes early - after 2700 miles!!!!!!!
From there we headed to join our friends Ingo, Barbara & Anna in Bonita Springs, FL, at Belle Ville community. Conditions were just perfect - light breeze, mid 70's, blue sky. Later on we walked the soft, white Vanderbilt Beach in front of the Ritz Carlton Naples, collected some perfectly white shells and coral and watched a beautiful sunset from their beach restaurant, drinks in hand!
Back at the house we made a delicious pasta, had some more drinks & wine and enjoyed each others company.
We will stick around here in Bonita Springs through Saturday, Dec 25th and stay busy with tennis, riding bikes, reading, relaxing, a little shopping as well as more food & wine. We will keep you posted with culinary updates till we get back on the road on the 26th.
