We left our wonderful Airbnb this morning and had a few hours before we could check into our hotel so we went to the Beach.
Lowdermilk Beach is one of many public beaches in Naples operated by Collier County. With easy parking, picnic tables, clean restrooms, a snack bar and a very short walk to the powdery sands it is very close to perfect. There was a stiff breeze coming on the water so we zipped our windbreakers up and just sat and enjoyed the scene. Since this is the beginning of the February school vacation week up north there were many multi-generational families in evidence. Jr and Sis and the their little ones visiting Grandma and Grandpa. A lovely way to spent the afternoon.
This evening we went to the Number 1 restaurant listed on Trip Advisor's for Naples - Rumba Cuban Cafe . It was, of course, very busy since it is Valentine's Day but the staff were cheerful and very helpful and the food was really good. The dessert menu description for the Flan boasted that it would be "the best Flan you have ever had". They were not exaggerating.
