Visiting Florida

Some areas in Florida I am familiar with since I have traveled to them often at all times of the year. Naples is a very special place in my heart because its beaches are the most compelling and organic experience I have ever come to known.

Sure. Naples is opulent and the cost of living is beyond even the upper-middle-class American's budget. Yet, visiting this place recharges my mind and body. I am lifted to a serenity of beingness. I long to return to my secret little heaven on earth.

Locals say ClamPassBeach is rarely crowded and natural resources abound. The 35-acre park in CollierCounty features a splendid white sandy beach with coastal dunes and 3200 linear feet of beach on the Gulf of Mexico, over five miles of kayak trails, and acre after acre of mangrove swamps. All day parking is $3.00. From the parking lot, you take a three-quarter of a mile walk on the boardwalk to the beach, or a free tram ride is available every 6 minutes. The walk to the beach is highly recommended. You will see three different types of mangrove trees, red, black and white. These trees protect and stabilize low-lying coastal areas and play a critical role in coastal fishery food chains. As a result, federal, state and local laws protect mangrove trees. These trees are unique in that they are salt tolerant. Birds and wildlife put on a show that you will not want to miss in the beach’s tidal bay. Once on the beach, you can rent kayaks, canoes, and sailboards. Other amenities include lifeguard, toilets, and showers, picnic tables, observation tower and nature trails.
