Bonita Springs Things to Do

Meanwhile in Bonita Springs, Florida

Here’s a little taste of what life was like in Bonita Springs, Florida this week.  If you haven’t met Angela before … meet Angela, my buyer’s agent and daughter in law.  We’ve been working together for about six months now.

When I went back through my photos to write this week’s post there were a lot of restaurant photos so I think I need to eat out less and take more photos elsewhere.  That being said, you are still going to read about food a little this week. 

We’ll start with Sunday the 8th being my recovery day from Honor Flight.  My son John, Angela joined me and participated as guardians no the last flight.  Sunday is always a slow moving day after a whole day in Washington.  If you’d like to learn more visit and you can read: Collier County Honor Flight Mission Five 2015

Monday was dinner with my friend, “The Fraulein”,  after we were entertained by bee keepers taking a hive away. Bees had built a hive in my owl box and I didn’t want to kill the bees and a friend of a friend keeps bees and agreed to take them away.   After the bee thing we went to eat at Fish Crazy in North Naples.  Randy as in "the Randy" and Tony run one of the best seafood restaurants in the area.  It’s stone crab season so you might want to pay them a visit.

Tuesday Angela and I were racing around trying to find a few pieces of furniture for a rental in Bonita Springs. We’ve learn quite a bit about thrifting, craigslist and consignment stores in the last few days.  The last few weeks is feels like we live in the car.  For the record, I do not do rentals.  This rental was actually for myself. If you need to list or sell a home in Bonita Springs or Estero, I’m your girl.  As a result of the shopping experience  I did write an entire post about furniture consignment stores in Bonita Springs, Florida – complete with map!

Wednesday we hit Teri’s for breakfast.  They put broccoli in their omelets and broccoli is my jam!  The boys say that Teri’s has the  best sausage and gravy. Teri’s is located on Bonita Beach Road and Livingston Road on the SW Corner, in Bonita Springs, Florida.  They are only open for breakfast and lunch.

Thursday is Rotary Club. I belong to Rotary Club of Bonita Springs Noon. You need to know that they are the club that organizes and runs the Taste of Bonita festival which is next weekend. This is the event to be at every fall.   Allow extra time to get to and from the venue as the downtown area is under redevelopment and there are detours.

Friday I was showing property in Bonita Shores area and saw this cute little house with a pergola.  I am in the process of fixing up a house in Old Bonita and I’m thinking about putting a pergola up to disguise a few things.  I see pergola everywhere now and usually stop to take a photo. There are a couple of them on Flossmoor Drive in Bonita Farms, too.

Saturday  saw this beautiful red shouldered hawk in Bonita Bay. She let me walk right up to her and take several pictures.  What a beautiful bird.  This is one of the great benefits of living in Bonita Springs, Florida.  Nature is all around.
