We also enjoyed a little dining with friends…L to R: Dee, Mike, Jim, Rick, Gail, Terri
Before we knew it, our 2 weeks was up and it was time to move on. We left WPF on Thursday, Nov. 20 and drove a whole 28 miles to our next location, Ortona South Campground. Love those short travels days! :) Ortona is also a COE campground and is one of our all-time favorites.
Lucy is all settled into her site…#33, right in front of the fishing dock :)
Views of the grounds around Lucy. Once again, I think we got the best site in the campground! :)
That weekend, we met up with Mike and Terri and took in the Flea Market in Fort Myers before heading downtown to try Ford’s Garage for Linner. Ford’s Garage is a pretty cool and very noisy beer and burger joint housed in…what else?..an old garage, complete with a Ford Model T hanging from the ceiling over the bar.
The food was pretty good too :)
We also took in a Classic Car Show on our way to restaurant. The streets surrounding Ford’s Garage were closed off and all these cars, and many more, were on display. My favorite was the pickup truck, top row, 2nd from the left. It was gorgeous!
We joined our friends, Rick and Elaine, along with their friends, Dave and Debbie, for lunch and again, for Happy Hour one afternoon. Good times, good friends, good food, good wine :)
In between all our socializing, Rick enjoyed fishing.
He caught a few little Blue Gills, which work well for a nice fish fry :)
BUT, this morning he landed this one…a 28½” Snook! He’s still smiling :)
Guess what we’re having for dinner tonight?
This is our last day here at Ortona. Tomorrow morning we pack up and head to our winter destination, Water’s Edge Motorcoach and RV Resort in Okeechobee, where we will be for 3 months. We’ll miss Ortona, the beauty, the fishing and definitely, the sunsets.
Thanks for stopping by.
