I slept like a baby last night and I was ready to tackle my last day. Jim picked me up at 8:30 at Boca Grande Marina and we were on our way. Beautiful and peaceful atmosphere on the water:
Captain Jim Cash dropped me at the South Seas Resort and was on his way back:
Thanks a lot Jim. I truly appreciated it.
I started to pedal at South Seas Resort at the north tip of Captiva. After a couple miles I saw this at the Green Flash Restaurant:
This is truly symbolic. On the right the Swiss Flag flies. Switzerland is the place I was born and raised and of which I have been a citizen. On the left the US flag flies. This is my new home and of which I will become a citizen this Wednesday. I will be sworn in at 9:00 am. It all falls together and it can’t be a coincidence after I have been exploring the United States in a unique way. I am very excited.
I was going down the Sanibel Island and there is still a lot of cleaning going on from Hurricane Irma:
I made it safely over the causeway to Ft. Myers and from there to Ft. Myers Beach:
And then finally I was in Naples. Final destination:
Carole is just amazing. She put all the banners on the house. She has been truly the rock of support and I couldn’t have done it with the freedom in my mind that she is supporting my crazy adventures. Thanks a lot. I love you.
There was a bottle of Champagne ready, sent by Jenni from the Foundation and it was a perfect ending to my trip.
I hope you got a good idea about my adventure and you were able virtually to see all the great places I have been to and to participate in my adventure. I thank you all for cheering me up and for your support whether mentally or in person. I was blessed to meet many friends and interesting people.
I will wrap it up with some stats over the next couple days but for now I will enjoy to do nothing at all.
Cheers and thank you.
