Sunday – November 22, 2015
We spent a delightful five days at the Flamingo campground in the Everglades National Park. During our stay the days were sunny, warm and humid, but brisk winds from the Atlantic Ocean made for comfortable accommodations outdoors in the shade.
Mosquitoes were still very prevalent this time of the year. Mosquito spray was required during the day. However, at sunset mosquito spray was ineffective against the swarms of mosquitoes that invaded the Everglades during the night. No campers dared to venture outside after sunset.
We leave the mosquito infestation behind as we depart the Everglades National Park and travel to Naples, Florida. We will spend the Thanksgiving Holiday with my sister and brother-in-law.
Tomorrow another adventure begins.
