Ok so no videos.
Final day and night in Naples before we head even more south into the tropics. But for now we had a lovely sunset cruise to see the sun setting in the Gulf. And to cap it all we were escorted back by some dolphins. Anyway pics and videos of the day and evening.

4 November 2017

Great day today. Started off finding a garage as the car told us we needed air in the tyres. Then drove to Lowdermilk Beach Park and paddled in the Gulf. Then went to Naples Pier and saw a couple of dolphins swimming. Then this evening had Stone Crab Claws for dinner. They cut off a claw then throw the crab back in the sea and the claw regrows. Lovely taste too.

30 October 2017

Second part of the trip today. Began with getting the rental car which we thought was going to be something like a Kia Sportage. But turned out to be a mini bus of sorts. But fantastic car. Dodge Caravan it’s called. Anyway took about an hour to get out of Miami. The satnav was set to kilometres and didn’t seem to work properly. Anyway I eventually sorted it and off we set. Arrived in Sarasota about 5pm after leaving Miami at 12 noon. Saw the sun rise over Miami Beach on the Atlantic Ocean and saw the sun set on the Gulf of Mexico.

29 October 2017

So today was a really great day. Having had a good nights sleep the sun also shone today. Took a sight seeing bus to Little Havana which is like Havana in Cuba. Had a great Mojito. Bought some cigars. Had a great shot of rum. Then took the bus back to Miami but stopped off at Bayside for lunch of wings and conch fritters. Finally got back to the hotel and had a swim in the pool and in the Ocean. End of the day now. New adventure tomorrow picking up rental car and heading to Sarasota on the Gulf of Mexico.
The final photo is sunset over downtown Miami

28 October 2017

This mornings view of Miami Beach. And downtown Miami. Gonna rain mostly today. Typical we are going on an Airboat Safari ride thru some Everglades.

27 October 2017

Finally arrived at our hotel many hours later than planned. Bit of a bumpy flight three quarters across the Atlantic but otherwise ok. It is 19.38 pm local time. Body clock nearly 12.45 AM.
At London Heathrow travelling to Miami. Just bought two bottles of spirits to drink on our various balcony’s
