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!
