Naples, Florida, USA

I have met so many wonderful people all over the world that live in beautiful places and therefore decided to share some photographs of where I live. We have lived in beautiful Naples, Florida in the USA since moving here from South Africa thirteen years ago. A favorite saying of mine is, "Bloom where you are planted!" We have done just that!

All images taken by me


  1. i love love love fl, especially naples. you shared so many fabulous pics i almost felt i was walking the beach and heading out to lunch after... heavy sigh!

  2. Dear Jain, I hope we have the privilege one day to see you here in Naples! You are one of those people who live in a beautiful place!

  3. Dear Ingrid,

    What a beautiful place to live in; the white sands, blue see, the wildlife. To me it looks like a holiday resort :-)! Wish I could come over and see it all 'live'. Hopefully one day I will.

    Wish you a happy weekend!

    Lieve groet, Madelief

  7. I've heard of how beautiful Naples, FL is but have never seen the landscape, it's so diverse! I love the pictures of the sea shells at shore, it must be heavenly to be a bird on the shore.

  8. Thank you Christine.....I have to agree with be a bird on the shore must be heavenly!

  9. Dear Ingrid,
