Naples, Florida this Labor Day weekend was SUCH a blast. Ever get the itch to just fly somewhere and get away? That is what we both wanted for this Labor day weekend and we went for it. La Playa Beach Club & Resort was outstanding and the perfect place to stay for a weekend getaway. Everything about the trip was just perfect and we lucked out with the weather. I was very happy to be at the Gulf after the oil disaster and find that the southwest shores of Florida were unharmed.

having a little fun in the sand...

Brian loves the water...I love laying...

my permanent position - reading design mags and Summer Affair by Elin Hilderbrand

the most beautiful sunsets - ever.

i love a surf board

one of the coolest (and gross) things I have ever seen - live sand dollars covering the sea floor 
I say gross because they had all these stringy things covering them and you could see them moving all over - YUK. 

How was your Labor day?!


  1. The first time I saw live sand dollars was this summer myself. We went parasailing and the boat crew had just dug them up. Then my son and I swam out to a sandbar and scored some ourselves. Just finished bleaching them white over the weekend on our back deck. Nature is fun...glad you got some rest and sun :)

  2. Beautiful sunsets!
    I've never seen live sand dollars.

  3. Looks like you ended the summer season on the right note! I love Naples too.
