High water problems during the summer at Marco Naples RV Resort will be diminished, thanks to a new diesel pump that recently arrived at the resort.
The torrential 83 inches of rain that fell in Naples last summer was too much for the old pump to handle, necessitating some remedial action, notes Kim Hamilton, resort manager.
The new pump, almost the size of a VW bug and weighing nearly 1 ½ tons, should help the park drain quicker. Hamilton has nicknamed the new pump “The Beast.”
The resort’s unique site, located at the lowest point in the vicinity, precludes a permanent solution because rainwater tends to drain toward the resort, but the pump will go a long ways in keeping the resort as dry as possible during the rainy season.
Meanwhile, our resort begins to take on a different atmosphere as snowbirds head back North this month. Daily activities are scaled back but for the hardcore residents, we still offer arts and crafts on Wednesday mornings, cards on Thursday nights, darts and ping pong on Friday nights and poker at noon on Fridays.
Signups continue for the 7-night Sun Cruise, which will sail the Western Caribbean Jan. 31 to Feb. 7, 2015. The cruise ship Vision of the Seas will embark from Tampa and head for Roatan, Honduras; Belize City, Belize; Cozumel, Mexico; and Costa Maya, Mexico, before returning to Tampa.
