Just over a month since I left my brother and the campground in New Market, Alabama, we reached North Fort Myers, Florida for winter.
The campground was quiet and only sparsely occupied when we arrived. Linda and Dale's rig was in place but they were not home. We pulled into our site, the same one we had last year, one site over from where we were during our first winter here. Improvements to the campground are easily seen: fresh sod and gravel. Word is there will be a beach area for campers too. Not a real oceanside beach, but a nice, clean, sandy place alongside a lake on the backside of the campground property.

Within an hour or so after we arrived, Dale and Linda came in from a day at Sanibel Island and were surprised to see our rig in place. There's not much better than getting those first hugs from good friends.

From what we gather, Joyce and Charlie are due here next, followed by Rick and Louise, just after Christmas, then Mark and Janie. Pam and Ernie, along with Fran and Mary will spend December at the Lion Country Safari Campground in West Palm Beach. The M&M's (Millers and Marchands) will meet at Disney World for a few days before coming here. Pam and Ernie will go from WPB to Naples for January, then come here for February and March. It's a hectic schedule but I managed to keep up some of the time.
|The site beside us would be occupied only occasionally and for short periods of time until late in January. |
The campground offers a small shed rental for $75 a month and this year, we've added one of them to our site. It's a good place to store bicycles, grooming tables and patio chairs to keep them safe and out of weather.

While it's really nice to be here, the temperatures are in the mid 80's and the humidity is really high. Nevertheless, life is really, really good here.
we sure liked our stay at Seminole just thought it was a bit too far to the beach...ReplyDelete
