Water Water Everywhere Photo Challenge

Sorry for the inconvenience, but now I realize why I can’t have this as its own page. It needs to be a post.

Today, I am starting a second photo challenge having to do with water. The challenge will be ongoing. Please feel free to post your photos of anything that goes into or has anything to do with water. The only thing I ask is not to post pictures of specific people. This is meant to be more of a scenery/nature post. Please post on your blog and put the link in the comments of this post. Tag with WWE and Water Water Everywhere. You can post anytime and how often you like. I hope everyone enjoys this and thanks for stopping by.

Trip Day 3

The Inn of Naples, what can I say about this place except at this particular time of my life, it is absolutely heaven! Although not directly on the beach, it is centrally located to many of the places someone would want to go in Naples, Florida. We crashed when we finally arrived at the hotel about 11:30 pm. We didn’t have anything scheduled for the next day so we planned to take a break and visit the beach. At 3:30 am I awoke to the sound of thunder and saw flashes of lightning. I don’t think it even rained, but it definitely was loud. I even heard it over the TV that had been left on when we all had fallen asleep.

I woke up at 6 am, went down for breakfast and coffee. I brought coffee back with me and sat on the small balcony of our room just relaxing and taking pictures. After my family finally woke up and got stirring, we went to the beach at Lowdermilk Park. This was the most beautiful beach. It was clean and not very crowded at all. Most of the other people who were there were from a daycare that had brought children out to play at the beach. We were only able to stay for two hours, but I enjoyed every second of the stay.

We ran some errands and ate lunch. Then we went back to the hotel in the heat of the day, although my granddaughter had to go swimming in the pool. Later, we went to Horizon Beach to try to get sunset pictures. It was still pretty cloudy so even though I did get some pictures, they weren’t really what I was hoping for.

Following the sunset, we went to Fernandez the Bull for Cuban food. We tried Yucca Rellena, Fish Tacos and the Shrimp Plate with a cilantro sauce. I had never had Cuban food before and although it was different, I enjoyed it.

Following supper, we went back to the hotel, cleaned up and my daughter scheduled the next leg of our trip.
