March 9, 2008 The adventure continues…

Rick Morgan
After leaving the KOA campground in Naples, we drove the back roads on our way up to Lakeland, FL. Mary & RJ had suggested we stop at this new town Ave Maria that is being built by Pulte and developed by the guy who started Domino’s Pizza. Apparently, it is “just for Catholics” but not being marketed that way. What an interesting place. They have a huge Catholic University and an Oratory, which will eventually be their church. They are waiting for a blessing from the Archdiocese. It really reminded me of the movie “Truman”. Photos here

We wanted to stop in LaBelle, FL to visit with Adele and Mike (Rick’s uncle and his wife). They have a lovely home on a very private lot with lots of different vegetation. They took us to lunch at “the new place” in town – Rodeo Bar & Grill. Another nice and fun visit! It was good seeing and spending time with them.

We eventually arrived in Lakeland, but too late, to find Clare’s grave, so we are staying overnight and will go to the cemetery 1st thing in the morning.
