Back to the (Naples) beach...


This post is dedicated to Kate, who misses Mazatlan and demands asks that I fill the void in her heart with more beach photos. But I hope you'll enjoy it as well.

Deep blue skies, turquoise water, white sand, rainbow-colored sailboats, hard, tanned bodies...Please let me know if I left anything out ;-)

Looks great, a very nice spot to be :)

RamblingRound said...

A lovely place to be. I think you have covered it well.

Kate said...

Ah, many thanks, Isabella. A little wind and surf could be added ;) but, if was Mazatlán, we'd also have palabas with margueritas, beer, and great food and vendors with tempting treats. No sailboats that close to shore. I love the thought and the photo. The sailboats and the red-"tent" top are very inviting. Enjoy your day at the beach!! Many thanks!

Oops, you forgot the fat, pale, old ladies who feel like it was just yesterday they were the thin cuties in the two-piece and are wondering, where did the time go?

Michael said...

Isabella, why isn't there anybody in the water? Is the water still too cold?

I think your beautiful beach photo reminded me that the water is empty of people. Nobody is swimming.

I remember the times I have been to Florida and gone to the beach it was always something of a surprise that nobody was actually in the water.

The people at the beach were all looking at each other.

Some people were nearly nude looking at some whose bathing suits didn't come in the proper size.

Nobody seemed to be having a good time. Those not wearing glasses were either asleep or had their eyes shut.

I have tried to figure out why people go to the beach and have come to the conclusion it is to watch other people watching them.

I did see, several times, young men trying to ride rather small waves on surf boards and they seemed to enjoy the exercise.

I have good news:

The three baby robins are on their way to Meet the World. I miss them already. It was quite an emotional experience for me.

Despite an absolute faith in your photographic skills, I can assure you that the tanned bodies that attract me are not at all hard.

We go over to Naples to enjoy visiting with friends and jumping into the the water. No one in their right mind would bother to look at the two of us but I still look at my wife with great pleasure. And as a dirty old man I have yet to see a young girl that had a bathing suit that was too small. On your beach I have a chance for a good swim, while on our side of the state we jump in to play in the waves.

About the lack of swimmers - this section of the beach was roped off (you can see the yellow tape if you enlarge the photo) for a special jet ski competition (about to start).
The water was quite warm and there were many people in it, all around us...

Kate - such pressure! Now I have to look for palabas serving margaritas...

Peter said...

I had also the intention to ask why there was nobody in the water (tried to find something negative - not easy), but then I saw that you already gave the answer.

I do enjoy the banter in your commentators but have nothing much to add
