I’ve just returned from the best vacation ever. My sweetheart booked us a condo for a week in Olde Naples, Florida, and from the moment we set eyes on the place we fell in love with it. Right now, it’s #1 on our list of places to retire to. Of course we need to return during the busy season and check it out, but I have a feeling it will pass muster and then we’ll be on the hunt for a place of our own!
Below is the Fifth Avenue Beach Club, where we stayed. Our condo was perfect and we were just two blocks from the beach.
And here’s the little chateau we fell in love with…
We fell in love with the shops and restaurants on 5th Avenue.
And the wine selection, too.
And made some lovely new friends.
And of course we loved the beach. The water was warm, waveless, and filled with all kinds of fish, some of whom jumped out of the water toward us. Yes, I screamed.
We loved the palm trees and the lily pads and the incredible flowers we discovered in the Botanical Gardens.
The entire trip was magical and both of us are hoping we can return in March. Fingers crossed. xo
Thanks for joining me on my walk down memory lane!
