Looking for a New Year's Eve venue? I have not eaten at The Dock at Crayton Cove in Old Naples, but their bold colors look appetising to me.
If you don't care for seafood, right across the street is the Bleu Provence known for their cuisine gourmande.
To make room for dessert, you might want to stroll over to Tin City and indulge in some homemade ice-cream. Bon Appétit!

"O! You better watch out! You better not cry, better not pout, I'm telling you why, Santa Claus is coming to town!"
Have you made out your list yet? If not, here are some Christmas gift suggestions:
"To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect." Oren Arnold.
Speaking of lovely gifts - yesterday I received my reward gift from Ruth for solving her puzzle. It is a clever Russian-inspired pin, with a Christmas motif. Thanks Ruth, I love it!

These strolling carolers in Dickens costumes were spreading Christmas cheer inside a clothing boutique at the Promenade (the photo was taken through the glass door).

This photo reminds me of one of my favorite holiday movies "The March of the Wooden Soldiers" (original title: "Babes in Toyland") with Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. In it, Stan and Ollie who work for a toymaker, instead of building 600 one-foot wooden soldiers as per order, mistakenly build 100 six-foot soldiers. Fun and mayhem ensues, only to end in a "happily ever after" (this is Hollywood, after all)!

Tree trimming downtown Naples. I know it looks a bit odd - the blooming flowers, the swaying palm trees, the short-sleeved clad pedestrians, but I try to remember:
"Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy, is to have the real spirit of Christmas." Calvin Coolidge
