Naples, Florida - Sun, Fun and COLD

Baby it's Cold Outside

The fun and sun our relatives wanted for their Christmas vacation in Naples, Florida was a little difficult this year. Too cold for the 4 out of 5 days they were here. Even though they are from Indiana, they shivered along with the rest of us! Our homes in Southwest Florida are just not cold proof. And to add insult to injury our electric costs are about $.35 cents for AC an hour versus $.75 for so called heating. Our heat is air blown across a coil and that's it. We actually went out and bought a space heater. There are times I feel like I'm back up north and I'm not liking it at all.     

We did manage to fish one day on our boat. But here comes some more complaining. Because of the lunar eclipse and full moon the tides in the 10,000 Islands were the lowest we have seen in the 8+ years we have been on the waters down here. We follow channel markers extremely closely and we still got stuck. Fortunately, the tide was coming in and within 45 minutes we were on our way. We did laugh, have a good time and poked a little fun at the "Captain". Later that day when it warmed we actually caught fish!           

We broke records for lows and we are just wondering what we have in store for January through March. Time will tell. Just a side note of inforamtion, always expect weird weather during full moon. Try not to book your vacation during the full or new moon. Oh, and if you live here full time, go buy a coat.

Have a wonderful 2011
