Bonita Springs Things to Do

Slice of Life in Bonita Springs, Florida

09-13-15 On Sundays I attend church at Riverside Park. It’s the pet friendly, shorts and flip flop friendly church.  In the bulletin this week is an announcement for the “Blessing of the Bikes” in a few weeks. If you have a bike, be it a Schwinn or a Harley, bring it to church to get blessed. There is usually a great turnout for this event.

09-14-15 Griffith and Co received an email from the guardian coordinator for Collier County Honor Flight letting us, as in my son Jon, his wife Angela and me, know that we are all on the next honor flight, November 7th!  We’re really excited to be personally escorting our own WWII or Korean War Veteran to Washington DC to tour their memorials and pay tribute to those who served and those who gave all. I’ve already been on Mission 5 and Mission 6.

09-15-15 The Griffith Girls listed a great little condo in Emerald Bay in North Naples. Emerald Bay is off of Vanderbilt Rd, about a mile south of Royal Scoop Ice Cream.  The condo is a ground floor unit, two bed, two bath, one car garage. $225,000.  You can see the photos of the condo here:

09-17-15  It rained for three looong days.  Dill, the wonder dog, has a little cabin fever so when it got down to a mere sprinkle we headed up to Depot Park and Island Park for a walk so he could burn off some steam.  We’ve both been inside too long. I’m aching for a hike in the woods.

09-18-15 After a comedy of errors and interruptions I ended up at dinner at Stir Crazy at Coconut Point Mall.  Coco-curry with tofu for me.  The best part was the fortune cookie that was somewhat appropriate given that I have a daughter getting married in December and it seems there are a lot of parties and planning.  Back in December 2008 is when Stir Crazy opened at Coconut Point Mall.

09-19-15 Dinosaur exhibit is in town at the Collier Museum in Naples, Florida. My grandson Aiden and I attended the event as special guests of friend of mine.  There is always something going on at Collier Museums. To learn more visit their site:
