Feeling Festive

Miles Today: 0 (yet -more to come later today after a sunset run!)

Last night was the annual Tree Lighting and Christmas on 3rd Street. One of my favorite events of the season. It is always a mob scene, but so worth it. 3rd Street in Naples is beautifully lit up, there are street vendors serving yummy food and drinks, different groups preforming bells, dances, and songs. I try not to think too much about Christmas before Thanksgiving, but last night really got me excited about the holidays!

  
            Love some wine in solo cups!

       
                 So pretty

We made a great decision this year and booked dinner reservations way in advance so we could sit outside and look at everything but be separated from the crowds. Sea Salt is one of our favorite local restaurants. Our table was perfect with a great view and a heating lamp. (yes- it was chilly!) The martini's and food were fantastic. I am very critical of dirty martinis and ours had exactly the right amount of dirtiness! The oysters rockefeller were creamy and rich and the ravioli with truffle sauce was incredible. 



I was still too full this morning to get out of bed and run...
