Bonita Springs, Naples, FL

ODOMETER: 80,806 | MILES TRAVELED: 2,861

Jana and I head out to Lovers Key for an early morning paddle. We’re hoping to catch a glimpse of a manatee as they head out through the waterways of Lovers Key to the ocean.

It’s a beautiful Florida winter morning and we do indeed catch a glimpse of a manatee. There’s a lot of birds and fish jumping in the shallow waterways of the park. We paddle out to the back bay and then head back to the park.

The weather’s been lovely and we take the dogs for multiple outings and hang out with Jack and Ellie. Jack and I are going to the soccer field to kick later and Jana and Ellie are going to hang out.

Jack and I had a great time at the field and we decided to check out Ahana’s Healthy Indian Cuisine. We met the proprietor, Nathan, when we picked up the dogs from the groomers. He was a lovely man who had a labradoodle and loved our puppies.

We order and wait for the food and take it home to the RV. The food’s very good, but super spicy.

It’s a nice change for us but a little too spicy for Ellie sadly. 

It’s another quiet night in the RV and a few episodes of “The Crown” before drifting off. 

It’s a beautiful Florida winter morning and we do indeed catch a glimpse of a manatee.

Our trip to Australia was delayed due to port closures throughout the South Pacific. We spent the month making improvements to Hanavave so that we could make the passage to Australia with fewer stops.
