The glamour of 5th Avenue and the beach of Naples, Florida

5th Avenue in Naples is the glamour street for shopping. There are many exclusive shops and the houses are just amazing. We were surprised that many shops offered affordable clothing. You must have a look at these enormous houses, they are almost castles. In the Naples Bay area you find so many beautiful mansions again at reasonable prices. Maybe a good city to retire, good weather and top beach location.

The evening was making its entrance when we arrived at the beach. Luckily we still had some light. Evening fishers stood at the shore line hoping to catch there dinner. If not, they will have to be the Red Lobster restaurant. The natural born fishers were also present, large groups of pelicans observered the sea, hoping to steal the catch from the fishers. Just a few more pictures of some birds and of we go to the restaurant. This was our last Florida Beach article, hope you found it interesting.

5th Avenue is de glitter winkelstraat van Naples, Florida. Er zijn vele exclusieve winkels en de huizen spreken tot de verbazing. We waren positief verrast dat vele zaken ook betaalbare kledij aanboden. De enorme vrijstaande woningen lijken soms op kleine kasteeltjes. Aan de baai van Naples met zijn vele vertakkingen vind je heel mooie villa's tegen soms redelijke prijzen. Misschien is dit een leuke plaats om op pensioen te gaan, mooi weer en prachtige strandlocatie. 

De avond viel toen we op het strand aankwamen. Gelukkig was er toch nog wat licht. Avondvissers stonden aan het water in de hoop hun avondeten te vangen, als het niet lukt gaan ze waarschijnlijk naar het Red Lobster restaurant. De echte natuurlijke vistalenten kijken van op afstand toe, grote groepen pelikanen observeren de zee, ze gaan het zeker niet nalaten de vangst van de vissers te stelen. We nemen nog enkele foto's en gaan naar ons restaurant. Dit was het laatste Florida strandartikel uit de reeks, we hopen dat je het interessant vond..

  5. Ah yes, Naples, Florida. The home away from home for my father's second wife's family. Her parents left snowy and called Minnesota a day or two after Christmas and would not return back here until late May. My father and stepmother vacationed there often, and it is one of the nicest cities in Florida. Money, lots and lots of money to be spent around those parts, but the beauty and charm is beyond what you'd expect.
