I spent some time yesterday training Patty at the gondola operation in Naples, went through some last-minute things with Kevin, and was finished, for the time being in Naples.
Today we drove back across the peninsula by way of the Everglades, and tomorrow we'll board a jet for California.
I've had a wonderful time out here, and over the years Florida has become a very special place in my heart.
Special, but hot and sticky.
I told my wife todaythat we couldn't set up residence here unless I had a pair of "hermetically sealed, air conditioned underwear".
So tomorrow it's back to California and perect humidity.
