Barefoot Beach

We said good-bye to our friend today. We intended on only staying a day but when you have such good company, good food, all in a great setting; why would you want to leave?

Before leaving the Naples area we managed to see the beautiful Barefoot Beach – one of the gems in the area.

Whats cool about this area is the huge gopher tortoises that freely roam around.

The beach itself has an incredible amount of shells which we saw some people wandering around and collecting.

We spent a few hours roaming down the beach dipping our toes in occasionally – the water is definately not swimming temperature.

We checked for tortoises under the van before leaving and started our journey up the coast.
