The Gulf of Mexico at Naples Beach is summer-like warm.
|By Maryland sea shore standards,|
Naples beach is warm all year long.
The only difference?
I'm done swimming in the gulf for the winter. It's way too cold!
Cold of course is a relative term. Northerners will be flocking the beaches soon and -- so long as the sun is out -- won't hesitate to go in for a dip. Then again they have Vermont-chilled molasses running through their veins. Compare that to us south Florida year rounders:
Our blood is as thin as water!
|In the order we saw them:|
a cat, an alligator and a mermaid.
There's plenty to do on the beach besides swim.
I for one always admire a good sand sculpture (or three.)
