Living in Miami is amazing and all, but every once in a while, it’s imperative to escape the Magic City. So once summer rolls around, we go on a few trips, including a good ol’ Florida road trip. Exactly one year ago, we a spent a full Fourth of July weekend in Naples. This time, our Florida road trip was about hitting up Fort Myers, Sanibel and Captiva Islands, Naples and Marco Island – all without hotels booked, and simply discovering things along the way. It was so much fun! I was feeling relaxed and “resort-y,” wearing a lot of white, denim, light fabrics, floral prints and my trusty pool slides.
To get these pictures, we drove around Naples one last time before heading to Marco Island, on what felt like the hottest, stickiest, most humid day of the year. As we pulled into the empty lot of what used to be a huge riverside seafood restaurant we felt like we had come across a ghost-town saloon aka “PHOTO-OPP JACKPOT.” It was pretty rad. We walked through a little open fence off to the side, to discover a whole other area with a back deck overlooking the river, old picnic tables and disintegrating benches, colorful doors and awnings. How is this place out of business?! It was enormous and had so much potential! After a good wander, and a good sweat, we got out of there to continue our road trip, but we hope these pictures capture a bit of that Naples charm.
