THURSDAY 06-11-08 

This morning we awoke to a bright sunny day which was a real treat after a few mornings of overcast skies. We’d slept well as our campground on Pine Island was away from civilisation and very quiet indeed. We’d come quite a long way off the beaten track last night to arrive here which on reflection wasn’t necessary as we were only passing through. Readied for the road we set course for Neapolitan Cove RV Park, www.neapolitancoverv.com a campground we’d seen in Naples two years ago and liked. 

On the way we did some shopping at both Wal-Mart and Publix www.publix.com in Fort Myers arriving in Naples www.naples-florida.com  to take the only vacant pitch on the campground which was very lucky. We’re booked in for 7 nights to give us a break from the continual travelling, leaving here the day before the space shuttle ‘Endeavor’ is due to launch, giving us plenty of time to arrive in Titusville www.titusville.com

This campground is targeted at older couples rather than families with children which makes it a nice quiet place to be. We’re the poor relations on this site as currently most of the RV’s are large, expensive Class ‘A’ motorhome’s the costs of which are measured in hundreds of thousands of dollars. 

It was so nice to be staying somewhere for long enough to make it worthwhile getting everything out and being able to leave it out. Once we were set up we decided to have a bike ride to Naples beach and take a few pictures of the sunset over the sea. We had to ride on the pavements as we didn’t have the bike lights fitted, something which will have to be addressed tomorrow. The beach and pier area were just as we remembered them. This is a lovely spot with the added bonus of having dolphins coming in very close to shore to fish. After travelling back in the dark we decided to have a quick evening meal of ham salad. 

Fortunately this campground allows the washing of vehicles and so I plan to wash and polish a section each day in the hope that by the end of the week we have a nice clean shiny RV.
