Wes on the Marina Side of Chokoloskee Islad
We'll be here in February. The sites are amazing. A+!
Sunday, perfect weather for a drive from Silver Lakes (between Naples and Marco Island) to Chokoloskee Island to see where we will stay for a few days in February. It exceeded our expectations. SOOOO hoping we get a water site!
After touring the RV Park, we had a great lunch of Cuban sandwiches at the Havana Cafe. The area is remote, but there seem to be several restaurants and at least one kayak rental business in the Chokoloskee Island / Everglades City area.
Heading back to Silver Lakes we stopped in at "Stans" on Goodland Island. This place is almost always crazed and tons of fun. The celebration was made more so by Halloween!
Home to Silver Lakes RV Park via Marco Island. There is no ambience to speak on a Marco "drive through." Like so many places you have to work on it to find the great beaches and restaurants with water viets. There are many, many high rise condomins along a commercial strip. But the weather is right!
We stopped at Isle of Capri Fish House for a happy hour Marguerita and had time for a dip in the Silver Lakes
Havana Cafe, Chokoloskee Island
Chokoloskee Island is a few miles beyond Everglades City.
Pool. When we got back to the RV at dusk, the lovely neighbors paid a call with a plate of chocolate mint brownies.
Wes grilled delish pink Gulf shrimp (from the Farmers' Market) and we watch pink clouds reflected in the pond in front of our site.
Great sunset; great day! So LUCKY!
