memorial weekend

had ourselves a great
memorial weekend
in naples, florida
friday nite we enjoyed  sunset celebration
at the vanderbilt beach resort
old florida - orchids hanging under palms
dinner by torchlight
the turtle club, delicious

saturday we hit the
more old florida - casual  style
no matter where you look
something to cool the eyes
loved this unusual palm
with huge pom seed pods
underneath a sleeping baby in a swaying hammock
saturday afternoon we moved back to
vanderbilt beach
and sat ourselves right in the midst of
a huge party of 20 somethings
loud music, LOTS of drinking
commraderie, friendship
oh, and nearly sunk this boat
so drunk and happy

sunday was ten hours of heaven
gulf waters perfect, dolphins jumping
sand dollars the size of my hand
 grillling under the shade of giant sea grapes
stayed until  sunset
monday we ate good meals
i had a key west bag & bake
shared pino gris bought in alsace region of france

and watched another
beautiful sunset!!!

:: hope your long weekend was a good one too ::
