Merry Christmas from the Hintons in “Snowy” Florida!

Where did the year go? Here we are in Southwest Florida with Christmas Day nearing and the end of the year within sight. It is hard to believe we have been here in Florida for neary two months! Although the calendar says it is almost Christmas we really wounldn’t know it from our weather. We have experienced near record high temperatures  so other than the shorter days I would have no clue it was the end of December. Christmas day is predicted to reach a record high of 87 degrees!!!

We parked right on 5th Avenue in one of the many free parking spots and started walking around.

We were surprised to see less Christmas decorations in Naples than we had remembered although it simply could be we really didn’t remember as well as we thought we did. Nevertheless we still had fun walking around Naples, taking pictures and goofing off. While we can’t be with our whole family during Christmas we sure do enjoy having Katie visiting us.

We hope all our readers, followers, stalkers, friends and family have a most excellent Christmas Day. May it be filled with great food,  fun and frolic. We feel as full timers, it isn’t really about the presents as Christmas to us is all about the experiences! Not to mention it is a whole lot easier to pack experiences in our limited storage! Merry Christmas!

  6. Love that statement - experiences are easier to pack. So very very true. Have a Merry Merry Christmas. We don't have snow but it's definitely colder this year here in Arizona.

  10. We just spent a week on Sanibel -- they go all out with holiday decorations, too, including at the RV park. Very festive and fun. It's definitely been a warm winter so far (a bit too warm and humid for me, and I'm a Florida native!). Merry Christmas!
