Day Trip: Naples..Lowdermilk & Barefoot Beaches


My Black Friday was spent exploring Historic Naples, Lowdermilk and Barefoot Beaches.  As always, I was on the look-out for unusual shapes or patterns…such as this one…

Historic Naples reminded me a bit of St. Petersburg, Florida—less creative and more artificial…but still beautiful!

My husband and I wandered into a few shops that caught our fancy.  These pillows are so cool…

The strawberry/blueberry smoothies I made for breakfast didn’t keep us full for long…so we stopped at a restaurant (wish I remembered the name for you) and had excellent brick oven pizza–Mediterranean for me–three meat for him!  This was my view…

Malbec to go with it…

On the way to the parking garage…

Based on recommendations from Trip Advisor, we stopped at Lowdermilk Beach in Naples to check it out.  You’ll find a park and sand volleyball courts after parking…before walking onto the beach…

Next, we drove back towards Ft. Myers and stopped in Bonita Springs at Barefoot Beach.  To access the beach, you drive a mile or two through a high dollar residential area and then pay $8.00 to access the beach, which reminds me of Sanibel Island—very nature oriented (lots of shells).

I loved the steps leading to this home!

We’re going Kayaking tomorrow!  See you then!

  1. You sure did capture 5th Avenue well. I think I sat under that umbrella when some friends visited and we went for lunch. I haven’t tried the beaches you mentioned but we did go to Tiger Tail Beach on Marco Island. You have to drive through residential area to get to that one too.

  2. Great color .. a colorful place – very intense, I love your photos – my picks today must be the top one with the stairs a rail shadow and that umbrella is truly something, want that for my balcony – and Malbec is always right.

  3. The first shot is great, I have to have those pillows and I could just stand for hours in those colours on the way to the parking lot. It looks like a magical mystery tour spot. I didn’t realize your husband was with you, he’s pretty quiet.
