Marco Island, Naples and Home, November 28 and 29, 2016

Yesterday, Monday the 28th, we drove the short distance down to Marco Island.  Many years ago we had stayed on Marco for a week with friends, Lloyd and Margaret Jones.  The place has changed in that the it has increased in growth.  We had stayed at Eagles Nest, a timeshare penthouse, which at that time was one of the larger buildings.  Today that building is one of the smaller high rises.  We then drove back to Naples.  Tom wanted to take some pictures of the beautiful houses and wanted to get lunch at Pincher's restaurant, a seafood restaurant that we had seen at several locations.  We went to the Pincher's in Tin City and were not disappointed.  We both ordered a shrimp skewer and crab cake dinner.  Since we have not found anywhere in Florida to have crab cakes as good as the Maryland crab cakes we were wondering if we were going to be sorry for our choice.  We both agreed that these cakes were the best we have had in Florida and were pretty close to Maryland style, lump crab meat with little filler.  After lunch we drove around taking some pictures of the stately homes along 3rd street,  walked out on the Naples pier,
walked about some shops in the area and then as we returned to the motorhome we stopped at Culver's for some ice cream.

Today, Tuesday 29th, we packed up the motorhome for our return to home.  We were on the road by 9:20am and drove 250 plus miles arriving at the storage lot about 1:45pm.  Before going home we did eat a late lunch at Oakwood Barbeque.  We had a real nice time in this Naples area and the Naples Motorcoach Resort was exceptionally nice.
