Tin City, and Old Naples

Yesterday we all decided to take a ride to “old Naples” and Tin city.
Back home in Michigan, we have a city with very large expensive homes. The city, Grosse Pointe, MI. is way out of my price range, but always nice to drive through the neighborhoods and oooh and aaah at the homes. Yesterday we heard that “Old Naples” is for the rich and famous. All I can say is WOW! Some beautiful expensive homes that make our Grosse Pointe look like the average blue collar neighborhoods.
Not only is this area filled with very large, beautiful homes, but the city itself is just beautiful.
Following our tour of the city, we found “Tin City”. This area is just for tourist and boaters. Beautiful marina with some very large boats. Boats large enough to be called small ships!

Lots of shops with very expensive gifts to purchase. I purchased a sugar free ice cream cone for Wilma and a cone for me, total cost $10.45! Yikes!!!! Time for our departure from this place and on to our next destination, the Naples Pier.
Tuesday came with a beautiful sunrise with clear blue skies. Wilma and I sat outside having our morning coffee. She wanted to do some laundry, I needed to remove the two front tires on the coach and get them balanced. So after breakfast we carried out our plans.
Gary helped me with the tires, even accompanied me to the tire store and back. What a great friend I have in my bud, Gary! They found both tires off balanced and balanced them both. They also pointed out to me that one of the rims had a slight bend in it which would cause a feeling of an unbalanced tire. When I get home I plan on swapping that wheel with the inner dully.
By the time I got back to the coach, Wilma was already back from doing some of the laundry. Kybee went along with Wilma to keep her company.

Another fun filled day in beautiful Florida!

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
