Daily thoughts and observations about Naples, Florida and surrounding areas.
Collier County, Goodland Florida,  has a brand new boat launch which is just a minutes away from the 10,000 Islands. As a boater I can't tell you how thrilled my husband and I were to see this park open. Wide launch, room for 2 boats at a time, stable piers with ladders, fully staffed bait store...
With all my listings that are sold I purchase a one year Home Warranty for the Buyers (saves a lot of headaches). The last policy I just set in place for an upcoming closing had information sent to me about the EPA and the banning of Freon. This is not a sexy topic but boy do I see possible probl...
  I consider myself a North Naples expert for all things real estate. I live, shop and dine all over  North Naples and love everything about it. I have a confession. In all the years I've been doing real estate I have not paid that much attention to Wyndemere Country Club. It just never seemed to...
What a nice way to spend the second day of the New Year 2011. Southwest Florida finally warmed up after our record breaking cold so we took our first trip to the Botanical Gardens with our family. What a treat. The plants, trees, water scenes and themes of each garden was a feast for the eyes. If...
Baby it's Cold Outside The fun and sun our relatives wanted for their Christmas vacation in Naples, Florida was a little difficult this year. Too cold for the 4 out of 5 days they were here. Even though they are from Indiana, they shivered along with the rest of us! Our homes in Southwest Florida...
It's that time of year again. We went to our first Farmers Market this past Saturday on Davis Road at the St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Naples FL. Fresh fruits and vegetables at great prices. You will find fruits, vegetables, homemade jellies and jams. They are open from Saturday 8-12.
Hello from Naples! It seems like "Season" in Naples has already begun. Many of our friends from the North are back for a fall visit and the traffic is noticeably busier. The restaurants are more crowded...although you still can go to most places any night without a reservation. I talked to a frie...

THE season is upon us. You can see it in the store, see it on the TV, hear it on the radio or anywhere you happen to go. So you are not in the spirit yet? Here are some suggestions: November 22nd: Festival of Lights on Third Street South.      Stroll along Third Street, streets are closed to cars...
If you live in Naples Florida and have never been to the Naples Museum of Art you are missing a real treat. Even if you are not the 'artsy" type the exhibits are so beautiful and very inspiring.  This Museum sits next to Waterside Shops bordered by Tamiami Trail and Pelican Bay Boulevard. It is a...
