My husband and I spent the last couple of days in Naples, we'd never been before so I was really looking forward to going.
Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint! It's truly one of the most beautiful towns I've ever seen.
The landscaping is incredible...everywhere. They must only accept the cream of the crop when it comes to gardeners here.
This little purple house was darling, it had a little matching purple guest house in the back but I felt a little creepy taking too many pics:)
Our hotel was only about a mile from the downtown area.
Walking through the residential streets was my favorite.
The condo complexes are as gorgeous as the homes. This one was my favorite.
So many of the tree's were surrounded by beautiful flowers at the base.
I love this house!
We made our way to the beach and walked in the water for a while.
How nice would it be to have this as your front yard?!?!
We sat on the shady bench for a while, after walking for about an hour. I think we sweat about 5 lbs. off!
I didn't bother to go in any of these shops, they looked on the fancy side and at this point, I looked like a drowned rat with sweat and sand stuck to me.
We did find a nice little Irish pub though and sat in there for a while.
Banyan tree's fascinate, no matter how many times I see them.
This little area's called Tin City. It has a few touristy shops and some bar/restaurant places. It was cute and I found a shell wind chime for only $10:)
It's hard to see in this pic but at night, we walked to a place called Tavern on the Bay for dinner. We had drinks (BEST Mojito I've ever had!!!) and an amazing appetizer. We felt a little full so we got our dinner to go and took it back to our hotel.
My husband had committed himself to getting the Elvis Burger, which is a hamburger, with bacon, cheese, peanut butter and fried banana's. No amount of coercion on his part could convince me try it...yuck!
We really loved this beautiful town and, being only about 45 minutes away, we're definitely going back:)
A Happy Mother's Day to everyone...whether you're a mom, a step-mom, a fur baby mom or just a woman, we are all mom's in some form:)
