This morning I phoned the Super Walmart in Punta Gorda, FL to verify if they allowed overnight RV Parking. I was assured that they did and was even told where in the parking lot they preferred we park. So I plugged in the address into the Garmin and we hit the road at 10:00 AM this morning.
When we arrived, I phoned the Super Walmart and this time asked for a manager. She told me that they, meaning Walmart, didn’t mind if we wanted to stay the night, however, it was against the county laws and we might get a knock on the door in the middle of the night by the local police, or worse, get a ticket. She said it all depends on if the police have a slow night, if they do we will be asked to move. Well that didn’t set well with us at all, and we were not going to tempt the police to wake us up in the middle of the night.
I searched on the Garmin, while Gary phoned our destination in Naples. I found a campground just 20 miles that had an over flow area with water and 15 Amp service for just $25.00. Gary found that our destination could not take us a day early.
Tamiami Village & RV Park, Sunshine Dr., N. Fort Myers.
We all agreed to take the Tamiami RV Park’s over flow sites. Back on the interstate for another hours drive and we arrived only to find the office closed. I’m glad I talked to them before we came as the lady told me where the sites were and we would settle up later.
Overflow sites are to the right of the office.
The temperature got up to 86 F. today and we really enjoyed the shade the motorhomes made. We sat around talking about the drive today and how lucky we were to find a campground that was not completely full.
Tomorrow we only have about 30 miles to go to get to our destination. We cannot arrive before noon, so this will be a sleep in morning tomorrow morning.
We stayed out and watched the sun set on the Palm Trees and the rest of the RV Park. Then the mosquito’s came out and chased us inside where we had a great supper.
Tomorrow I will FINALLY get internet connection! I’m really feeling the withdraw pains of not having an internet connection. Can’t wait.
We are all anxious to get to our destination tomorrow. Hopefully we will be able to fall asleep tonight. See you all tomorrow!
So until then, be safe and God Bless.
