Florida Sun

We left on March 7 to visit my Grand Parents in Naples Florida. It was an OK day here in Michigan, it wasn't snowing or blowing and the roads were clear so we made it the GRR airport on time and our flight departed on time which was nice.

Coming in for a Landing 

By  2:30 we were hanging out in Naples Florida. Travis was not feeling the best he kind of had the start of a cold so we just went for a walk and just hung out our first afternoon there, which worked out ok b/c my Grandpa wasn't feeling the best either.  

My Grandma had these Beautiful Daisies in our Room for us when we got there. She knows My Favorite Flower PINK DAISIES :)

We did Enjoy a lovely walk though. There are some really nice walking trails were my Grandparents stay. There are a few miles of nice paved walking trails plus a really nice board walk that is probably about 1/2 mile long. 

Awesome Board Walk

Friday we went out for breakfast and spent the day at the beach and then out for dinner in the evening it was a great relaxing day. I was able to get in nice 4.5 mile Run in the morning just on the nice Bay Forrest Trails.

Saturday was Bike Ride Morning for the Bay Forrest Bikers :) I was able to get in a 6 mile Run and then I was off with the group on a bike ride to Venetian Village our Round Trip Bike Ride was about 25 miles. Then my Grandma took me to the waterside shops a really neat mall in Naples we walked around and did a little shopping enjoyed an iced latte and dark chocolate grams from Starbucks as our afternoon snack YUM. There was this super CUTE North Face Jacket that I saw at Nordstrom's while we were shopping that I might order online.
