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:
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.
