Theme day - what your city is known for

To help you remember what Naples is known for, I came up with this acronym:


B.L.I.S.S.


Beaches


Leisure



Indulgence



Shopping


and Sunsets


Sadly, we are also known for hurricanes :-(

Terrific interpretation, and I love the "twist(er) in the tale"

Ann (MobayDP) said...

Yup. This is what Naples means to me. I especially liked the shopping part and the indulgence. There really are some indulgent homes in Naples! :)

White sand, blue sky...so beautiful!

je viens de perdre mon pari. j'avais parié sur une photo d'alligators. Mais tu as raison, on entend souvent parler de la Floride en France a cause des tempêtes.
Bon Weekend, Bon SuperBowl et évidement sans aucun doute, une belle victoire des Giants

I just lost my bet. I bet on a photo of alligators. But you are right, we often hear from Florida in France because of storms.
Good Weekend, Good SuperBowl and obviously no doubt, a great victory for Giants

Jilly said...

....and aligators!

Seriously - love the way you've done this - nice choice of what Naples is all about, except perhaps for the hurricanes.

Peter said...

Really nice, the last postcard! ... and like Olivier, I missed the alligators!

Ham said...

I don't miss aligators. Or sharks. But I do like your interpretation.

oldmanlincoln said...

Your photographs represent your city very well. Nice job.

Kate said...

You are a very creative woman, Isabella! Love your BLISS! Could do without your "You are here" aspect, tho!

Hyde DP said...

what no alligators or golf courses!

For once I'm not running with the theme this month.

Chris said...

Blue skies, smiling at me. . . .Nothing but blue skies. . . and white sand and sunshine. . . .So nice for those of us suffering from grey, rainy Nashville days!!

Nathalie said...

TERRIFIC POST Isabelle, I love the acronym! And a TERRIFYING end to it. Bliss has its many sides...

R&R in The Netherlands said...

Can't be perfect all the time. Nice interpretation of the theme and love the kicker.

tfangel said...

I'm guessing the "G" for gators is silent? ;)

isabella said...

LOL, tfangel!

To all of you who accused me of neglecting to include a gator - obviously you did not enlarge the Leisure photo!!!

Lessie said...

Awesome, Izzy. You win the prize. Lovely pics and great acronym! :)

Kuanyin said...

You always come up with the most clever posts--well done!

Felicia said...

Great photos Isabella! I like that acronym, but unfortunately the hurricane part is true too!

Hyde DP said...

ah yes I should have looked closer and seen the golf and gators - as for the road on my pic you might find a few cyclists on it from time to time.

Southern Heart said...

What a creative and fun post (and we love your area very much!...'cept for the hurricanes ;)

zentmrs said...

Great photos and perfect way to show off your city. I'd love to visit... anytime except hurricane season!

Helen said...

What I wouldn't give to be sitting on that beach in the first photo! Very nice photos!

Ex-Shammickite said...

Very cleverly put together! I think I'd love it in Naples, you have everything that would make my life complete!

Frank said...

I can see you in the last picture - if I enlarge it and use my glasses, I can see you hanging on to a lamp post, hair flying, eyes shut...

Keropok Man said...

Wow Isabella,

You really live a very BLISSful life! How fortunate! ;-)


Happy Theme Day!

Jim said...

As I was going through the pictures, I was saying, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, hahaha sadly yes.

Pat said...

Lovely image! Hope to see it someday!

Beaches and sunsets sum up what I think of when I think of Florida! Nice images, and creative use of the word bliss.

It is great to live in Naples, Florida!
