Just sitting on a bench, breathing fresh air, admiring the view and hoping a bird will fly into view.
A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida (Naples) and southwest Connecticut (Ridgefield) and New England and other places he goes.

May All Beings Everywhere be Happy and Free
Friday, March 29, 2019
An ibis flew up onto a branch. He began grooming himself, which involves ridiculous contortions and wing fluffing and feasting on the insects on its coat. But, every now and then,
the ibis would stand still and just flex its wings.

It is fascinating how many different and interesting birds you can see around here if you look beyond the eagles, ospreys, herons, wood storks, roseate spoonbills and other major league birds.

India Fest . . . Finis
One of the mothers of dancing children was master of ceremonies.
Like parents everywhere, there was a line-up of proud parents taking pictures.
Liban sells curried meals. He is very persuasive. Fortunately, his food is good.

Tourists in Bayfront
If they are all riding Segways and lined up for a photo, they are tourists.
Bayfront, a mixed commercial and residential development near where the Gordon River meets Naples Bay, just outside the downtown.

U Pick Burgers
Strawberries, yes. Apples, yes. Blueberries, yes. Nearly any fruit, yes.
But this was the first place I have seen that offered pick-your-own burgers.

Hurricane Irma plowed through here eighteen months ago, but workers are still

Some of the participants in the 2019 Naples St. Patrick's Day Parade.
A team of Clydesdale horses pulled a replica Budweiser beer carriage.
Fire, police and state troopers -- active and retired -- had prominent positions in the parade.
City of New York firefighters accompanied a float with 343 flags, symbolizing the
343 NYFD firefighters who died in the September 11 attacks.
It must have been a long march for the younger participants, but some held up pretty well.
