Naples, beach

Traveling for work for the first time in a while (by plane, anyway), I find myself at a beautiful almost-seaside resort in Naples, Florida.  Unlike the many, many other beach resorts I’ve visited (I jest), this one isn’t right on the beach.  Instead, there is a .6 mile walk on an immaculately-maintained boardwalk through a mangrove… grove.  This is not a problem.  What could be a problem is this:

do not feed alligators

Or this:

Seriously, what the hell?  That is a spider with spikes!  Is that even allowed?

I braved the dangers anyway, and here’s some of what I saw.

FYI, I’m counting this as my Photo 11 assignment for now.  If I get something better with water in the next week, I’ll update.

The boardwalk led to a pristine and very quiet beach.  No big waves in the Gulf so it’s more of a gentle lapping.  Peaceful, really.

There are also lots of cool dead things at the beach.

Finally I’ve got one just for David.  I think I may have found real live Cesars.  Look and tell me that’s not what these are!

That’s all for now but I’m sure I’ll walk that boardwalk a lot while I’m here.  If anyone knows the deal with that spider with spikes, let me know.  Maybe I shouldn’t walk down the boardwalk barefoot.
