We stayed at the Trianon in Bonita Springs; it is located in a Promenade of various shops and restaurants. We loved being able to walk to most all of our meals - and enjoyed the Lakehouse Restaurant adjacent to our hotel.
Our favorite spot would likely be Roy's; located just around the corner of our hotel, they boasted a wonderful $6 Happy Hour that we indulged in a few times. Our bartenders were the best! We also loved Doc's (Katie! Thought of you!)
Each day we enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the patio of our hotel - probably a favorite memory of the trip (what a treat to just sit, relax and drink my coffee in nice weather!) We then drove about 7 minutes to the ocean, went for a morning walk on the beach and then layed out in the sun. We swam in the ocean a few times, saw some dolphins, enjoyed great wine and a few Corona's and Margs, too.
I feel blessed to have taken this trip with my mom. Especially with life moving and shifting at such a fast pace right now, it is a trip I'll remember forever. And I hope to come back to Bonita soon!
Below is one of my favorite pictures from our trip - I think it sums up our vacation quite nicely. I'll post more in days to come.
