Beautiful Day in Naples!

What a gorgeous day in Florida - near 80, sunny and bright!  We were at Barry and Deb's CG by 9:45 and we followed them to downtown Naples.  What a beautiful area.  Deb led us on a bike ride on Gulf Shore Boulevard and on different areas of downtown Naples.   The condominiums and homes we passed were incredible.  Definitely an affluent place!  We probably rode at least 10 miles, stopping twice to view the Gulf.  The landscaping is also a sight to behold - meticulous.  It really was a wonderful ride.  

You can find all of these shells on the Florida Beaches!

Naples Beach!

What a gorgeous beach day!

Hard at work!!!

These water side properties are incredible!

The Happy Bikers!

Just a "small" house on the waterfront!

After the ride, we ate our packed lunches in the downtown park area.  Then we loaded our bikes and walked down to 5th Avenue.  I enjoyed checking out the jewelry at the Best of Everything and then joined the 3 of them at Starbucks.

Fifth Avenue in downtown Naples!

On the way back to their campsite, we stopped at a Fresh Produce Market - a very interesting supermarket with lots of fresh fruit, veggies, meat, seafood, and cheese.  From there we went to their CG for Happy Hour and then dinner in their Airstream enjoying the food bought at the Fresh Produce Market.  After dinner, Deb provided a light show for us on the side of their Trailer.  It has a lot of people talking in their CG.  We played Miles Bournes before getting back to Waldo at 9:30.

Another great day with special friends.  Another reason to Celebrate Life Daily!
