Happy, Happy Anniversary.
So glad you had a good time. My favourite pict is the staight on shot of the jetty/wharf with the clouds in the background.Love it.
I can assume that the coffee shop was Marks favourite spot? Did you find any good tea places?

Thanks Everyone.
Karen, the pier is my favorite picture too, I am thinking about blowing it up for my office. Does anyone know how I could add words to the picture prior to printing, (I am working on a MAC).
The city of Naples has a blanket fishing license for anyone to fish off of this pier, and was set up with fish cleaning tables and everything. A little disgusting for me, but hey, if you like to fish...this would be heavenly. We are going to plan a family vacation to this city...it was wonderful, we actually enjoyed it even more than Palm Beach.

Disclaimer about the coffee shop, we found it in Naples, (THe beautiful city on the Gulf Coast that I referred to above). We went in to get Mark's fix, prior to heading through Alligator Alley on the way home. They serve only Kona Coffee, which is where I went to YWAM years ago. The name comes from the native people of Hawaii, they referred to the pack donkeys used to carry the beans down the mountains...we might say, "Stubborn as a mule". They called them the "Bad ASS Ones". We had a great chat with the owners, so friendly, they have a son-in-law fighting in Afghanistan right now.
Karen, Mark did offer to take me to our tea house from our first visit to Palm Beach, but with the hot weather and not sure if such an old building would have AC, I opted out. I brought my Red Rose and we know where all the Starbucks are in Palm Beach.

The Old Naples Pub is where we had lunch as a storm rolled in, the patio is under a huge vine covered Pergola three stories high, we were sheltered from the rain, but got to enjoy the wind...and the food was incredible. Inside was just a huge old wooden bar, a few small tables and a piano, but again so friendly.
