Last Friday’s Bon Voyage party was an excellent sendoff, with almost 200 Spanish Wells CC members in attendance. Good friends, great food, and a crowded dance floor dropped the curtain on another “season” in SW Florida.
For the next 6 months, those of us who remain here will enjoy low traffic, un-crowded stores, beaches, courses, and restaurants, lots of “twofers”, golf at reciprocal clubs, and warm sunshine. Personally, I look forward to the end of the season as much as I enjoy having snowbird friends return in the fall. The offseason is a great time to be in Bonita Springs.
Today as I biked south on Livingston to Pine Ridge, I ventured off the sidewalk and back in the bike lane for the first time in months. Traffic was noticeably lighter and it felt safe again. I stopped at a farmers market on the way home and picked up some fresh produce for the week. Life is good in Bonita Springs, Florida—no matter the season.
