Hamburgers and Palm Trees

Raleigh and I had hamburgers for dinner tonight.  Mine had shredded cheddar cheese and gorgonzola; his was plain.  He didn't seem to miss the cheese.  Raleigh, as it turns out, is one of the best dining partners....he's excited at whatever I feed him, and he's awfully cute, to boot.

That I have palm trees outside my window is a real aesthetic plus.  I've wanted a view of these wispy, carefree trees for as long as I can remember.  The never-ending sunshine isn't too hard to take either.  I'm just loving my new digs in Naples.

Prior to dinner, I took Raleigh to Canine Cove, Mackle Park, Marco Island.  We, rather, he...romped around chasing tennis balls to his heart's delight, building up that appetite for the cheeseburgers in Paradise....his sans the cheese.  Canine Cove is just adorable, and I found out that on the last Sunday of every month from 3-5, they have "Yappy Hour."  I don't think martinis are served, however, it's a short drive home to make my drink of choice garnished with blue-cheese stuffed olives.

I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful holiday weekend.
