Clam Pass Beach, Naples

It was our final beach day, and there was no parking at Lowdermilk Beach, our first choice, so we went to Clam Pass Beach instead.  It wasn’t my mother’s first choice as there was an $8 parking fee, but it was well worth it, and I now have a new favorite beach in Naples.  It was very crowded, but the water was beautiful, the food for lunch was great, and the ride over on the tram was very efficient.  Many people were walking to the beach on the boardwalk (I’m guessing maybe a kilometer?), but I can’t recommend this as there were spiders and spiderwebs EVERY where.  Look up, look right, look left, the whole ride out to the beach was through a maze of webs covered with spiders.  I was grateful for the roof on the tram ride.

Vanderbilt Beach, Naples FL

Ok, not in the New England area, but it is January, and we just returned from vacationing in Florida, so the next several weeks will feature some sites we visited while on vacation.  So, take a break from the dreary and gray New England skies for some warm locations.  Here are some sunset pictures taken at Vanderbilt Beach in Naples, FL.

Duxbury Beach

I’ve heard for years how lovely Duxbury Beach is, and never seem to think of it off season.  Today Lydia and I had a few hours to kill while waiting for Lieren, so we decided to check it out.  WOW is all I can say.  A thousand times better than our tiny beach in Cohasset.  I only wish I discovered it years ago!

Gunrock Sunset

One of my favorite local places is Hull, MA.  I bought my first home in Hull and love the beaches, sunsets, and sunrises.  There are only a few weekends a year where the sun hits the beach in the right spot for a good sunset photo, late April/early May.  I love the dreamy look of sunsets and silhouettes!
