Arriving near Naples - we had forgotten how many people live in South Florida!!! Haha
First up was 40' Leopard - this boat has been around the world! It's very nicely equipped.
And several custom features - including this great drawer arrangement in the forward guest berth for tool/spare part storage.
This was the only boat to see in Naples - so we had a bit of fun during what remained of the afternoon.
We went for a 4 mile walk - from our hotel to the beach.....on the way I spied these HUGE ficus trees in the background (the round mushroom-like trees)....just thought they were cute and I wonder if I can get my little ficus tree to grow like that!!! (Nice to be in shorts on Dec 30th!!!)
Walking down the beach in Naples - we're really close to the airport - saw several helicopters buzzing the beachline.
Walked all the way to a quaint little downtown area called Tin City - lots of shops and restaurants on the waterfront.
We went to "Pinchers" - seemed to be a popular spot.
Two-for one beers....
And some really great raw oysters!
On the walk back thru Tin City - note the airplane on final approach to the airport.
Then the next day, it was a quick flight up to Sarasota Airport (just 80 miles).
We had an appointment with a broker to see a couple of Manta catamarans.
I didn't get a really good photo of the "whole boat"....but it's a nice sturdy catamaran. (I don't like the name....Iguana Dance....but that could be fixed).
Interior was in good shape.
Nice large berths.
Some nice cabinetry.
