All turned out alright in the end

Hi Folks, Fred here again,

This is very tiring being in charge it wouldn't be so bad if I got paid for it.

Anyway's, we went to The John D Pennekamp State Park in Key Largo to chill out before going on to Naples. It was a lovely park, I enjoyed the sunshine but they didn't share their ice creams with me.

This was a view from the park looking across the lagoon. They had Kayaking, snorkling and swimming all rolled into one. Also on the site was a shop and an Aquarium.

I don't think I would like to get too near these Lion Fish but they did look pretty.

On the way back they did the washing, I don't know much about these launderette places but they said they hadn't seen anything like it.  I stayed in the car as I do not wish to take part in such activities.

They told me that the walls were painted by a local artist and the drier doors were etched with pictures of fish.

Close up of the doors.

Anyway back to the hotel and a good sleep before we packed and set off to Naples across the Everglades.

A 162 mile journey  with a stop at an Indian reservation before arriving at Naples

We.found the Comfort Inn which Sue and Mike stopped at 11 years ago. In the shop was a bear and our Sue fell in love with him straight away.
On his vest it says " I spent the night in Naples" and his name is Henry. He seems a bit young to do the blog but we decided to give him a try.

We hope Eileen approves. (Fred has had  enough anyway and wants to go back to Ireland}
