Monday – January 14, 2013
We departed the Long Pine Key Campground in the Everglades National Park at 11:55 p.m. and arrived at my sister’s home in Naples, Florida at 4:50 p.m. We will spend the next two weeks at their home visiting with my sister and her husband.
My sister and her husband moved to Naples 22 years ago. When they first moved here, Naples was a very small quaint community that was a winter home to many of the homeowners. Today, Naples is a large sprawling urban community to a majority of year-round homeowners.
We always enjoy our wintertime visits to Naples. January is usually filled with sunny days and warm weather. Some of our favorite restaurants here are: P.F. Chang's China Bistro, The Fish House and Sushi-Thai.
P.F. Changs is a Chinese influenced restaurant that has an amazing décor with delicious menu choices.
The Fish House is located in Bonita Springs right next to a canal that flows out into the Gulf of Mexico. This restaurant serves up delicious fish sandwiches with generous size portions at very reasonable prices. Boaters are welcome and can tie up at the dock to enjoy lunch or dinner here.
The Sushi-Thai provides a variety of very tasty sushi rolls and sashimi delights. If you enjoy sushi or sashimi, this is the place to go!
