After the excitement of our trip to England, we were happy to have a relaxing weekend with friends planned for the Fourth of July. We headed down south to the Naples/Marco Island KOA with our trailer, and our friends were staying in cabins there. I have no idea what possessed me to head south in Florida in July. It was hot. And sticky. And there were a ton of annoying bugs flying about.
Yet, we are a group who can have fun no matter what, so it was still a great time. We spent a couple days trying out different beaches in the area and that is pretty much the only pictures we took. Chris and James also spent a few hours at The Revs Institute car museum and they highly recommend it if you are in the area.
|Danielle. Thinking about the vastness of the ocean? Or how far she has to swim to get away from her sister…?|
|Kim, as fabulous as ever, with her daughters, Tia and Danielle.|
|Danielle gives the stand-up paddle board a try with her mom and grandmother, Enid, looking on.|
|Sitting turned out to be easier.|
|Chris. Living the dream. Floating along.|
|Patrice, her mother Rosemary, and her daughter Tessa having fun in the water!|
|Tia took a turn on the SUP and she did great!|
|For a bit.|
|Speaking of splashes… I totally won that fight!|
|James and his great love. Not Tia. Digging in the sand.|
|James and Tessa. I have no idea if he is “adjusting his shorts” in this picture, but they’re still cute.|
|Jill and Patrice. Friends since 1999. Former NYC roommates. Always fun.|
