Girls in downtown Naples which is quite snazzy - which I am quite certain is no longer used as an appropriate descriptor.
Full on smiles in Naples.
Olga looking great of course Brandon and I looking questionable, except for his satchel which is fabulous..
Love it - two great friends in the ocean.
Back at the Naples house after a long day at the beach.
So this has been an ongoing situation. Emmerson has inherited my hair. Back in the day, I had long hair and as it was curly and I was who I am - I did not comb it. The longer it got the tanglier it got. Eventually I had full on dred locks - or just tangled locks of hair for those who do not think the term dred can be applied to this reality. Anyway - Emmerson's hair is quite tangly and she did not properly brush the underneath part so it evolved into a gigantic tangle. It was about a 4 inch long and inch wide tangle. Eventually - Alicia had her shampoo and condition and repeat several times and took her out in the back yard and got it untangled - with a lot of tears.
Emmerson in her full on squnit and it must have been super sunny because Ada is also in a squint.
We are all all about shade - thus the shade.
This is how I look now at the beach in Naples end of June 2017. I just like the tall cloud in the background and the beach. I love the beach - even though I have to wear a long sleave shirt and perpetual headgear which I took off before this pick to put on a different beach walk piece of head gear vs. my water head gear!
And this was quite the excitement. I don't like snakes for a variety of reasons involving some scary encounters with them. I would never simply kill one but I don't want to hold one and would always prefer to see them from a distance if I need to see them at all. I does not matter if they are dangerous or not - just want to keep my distance. So it just so happened that when we got back from the beach, the girls of course headed for the pool and after a bit a snake was noticed that had some how gotten into the screened in porch pool area. Not sure why/how I became the snake herder but I did - got a pool noodle and skooted the snake along the fence to the screen door so it could get outside. I know braver, none anti snake folk would have picked it up by the tail or however you pick up a snake but I am not that folk. After several anxious minutes of herding I did get the poor confused snake out the door and we could all take a sigh of relief and hit the pool again
