Welcome to November!
We are already a month and a half past the hurricane coming to our beautiful Naples and changing some of our lives forever. We are rebuilding, fixing and back to some normalcy and readying ourselves for the influx of visitors and part time residents to come and enjoy our paradise with us. As businesses, we hope they purchase a “memory” to take with them that will spark special remembrances of the good times had while here.
One of Naples most charming areas is Crayton Cove which is in the midst of changes that are intended to improve our community. During this unsettling time, our stores and restaurants are open and marketing our wares and services
as usual. We are all doing what we can to bring you our best and keep our quality up while offering the most favorable Old Naples experience we can, hoping we entice you to come our way when you are looking for a memorable
dining and shopping experience.
Our Crayton Cove restaurants are award winners and some of the best in Naples. Bleu Provence, Chez Boët, The Dock At Crayton Cove, Napoli on the Bay, The Boathouse and The Cove Inn Coffee Café are open and serving their specialties. Our art related businesses have reduced in number but continue to represent artwork and fine craft by well over 40 artists, most from Southwest Florida. Phil Fisher Gallery, Random Acts of Art, Naples Ships Store, Earth & Fire and Guess-Fisher Gallery are open and featuring the fine works of art they have become known for.
We, as the Galleries of Crayton Cove, are continuing to host our art and music event, “Art After Dark”, which happens from 6 – 9 p.m. on the second Saturday each month through May and is November 11, this month. It’s an opportunity to meet the artists and enjoy live music while viewing their newest works of art. We are a group of galleries representing professional artists in our community in Old Naples by the Bay, all within a one-block walk, where 8th Street South meets 12th Avenue South at the flagpole. www.philfisherfineart.com www.GalleriesOfCraytonCove.com
