Today was pretty foggy, but we thought it would lift after lunch. So we packed our lunch and had a picnic at Bay View Park, right on Naples a little south of the center of Naples. The park was a very nice place for a picnic lunch.
After lunch, we got in our kayaks and set out for a paddle. It was still pretty foggy, but after getting bored with just hugging the shore, we made a mad dash across the channel. Our biggest concern was that some big boat wouldn't see our yellow kayaks. We did fine and once on the other side we found ourselves in Port Royal, the toniest area of Naples. The houses were pretty incredible -- a lot of old money. Every one of them has some impressive boat moored to their dock. I thought Jay Gatsby was going to step out of the gazebo of any number of the houses...
