Mike and I took a quick vacation to Naples, Florida, where apparently they hand out Porsches and Bentleys to everyone who moves there. The place was beautiful and wildly out of our league, but it was fun to pretend for a few days.
If you're ever there picking up your free BMW, be sure to stop at Tulia - we try never to eat the same place twice but had to repeat our visit there. Fabulous Italian food! We also really enjoyed Jane's Garden Cafe for breakfast after we took our morning walk through the mansions.
One night we weren't sure what to do and BOOM! they had a Christmas parade right outside our porch at The Inn on Fifth. That was awfully nice of them. The hotel's location couldn't be beat, but they hung a phone next to the toilet where the toilet paper should be, and turning to find that phone every time just about drove me crazy.
If I REALLY needed to dial down to room service while I was on the toilet, I'd have even bigger problems.
They gave us this nice "no moleste" sign to hang on the the door to keep out any handsy politicians, actors, producers and directors who might be in the area, which was very thoughtful. After that, we left swanky 5th Street and went to a beach hotel to get more of the beach vibe for the last two days of the trip.
It was cold by Florida standards, but it was 35 degrees back home, so we weren't complaining!
