The Sunshine (and Bug) State

Greetings from the Gulf Coast of Florida!  We’ve had a busy few days traveling south from the Smokies.  We spent the last two days visiting with family and friends in Tampa, and tonight we are comfortably tucked into our tent at a campground in Naples.  We are tucked into the tent this early (before 8 PM) because the “no-see-ums” are out in full force.  We were able to have a leisurely dinner at the picnic table and take a dip in the campground pool before the bugs forced us to take refuge.  Fortunately, we are only here for one night.  Tomorrow, we’ll visit Everglades National Park on our way to the Lower Keys.  Hope you are all having a great weekend!
