NAPLES, Fla. - At the Naples City Dock, boats rock with the waves.
"The preparations were more miserable than the storm, thank God," said Captain Elizabeth Bloch of Naples Sailing Adventures.
After Isaac moves away from Florida's coast, Elizabeth Block rushes to the dock like other boat owners to check on their prized possession.
"What condition is your boat in?" I asked.
"I'm thrilled. Lucky. Very, very lucky the storm didn't do damage to it," said Block.
The waves crash over walkways at the dock. Parts of the dock are now flooded after the storm.
"My boat is at home. It's safer. It's on floating docks and kind of like in a bay area," said Debbie Weber.
The city has even blocked off areas of the dock now with caution tape.
"No, never seen it like this where you can't see the walkways or anything like that," said Weber.
So watch your step. Captain Marlena Brackebush with Island Sailing sent me a video showing the assistant dock master and another lady rushing to fix a broken plank on the city's dock.
The dock is not the only place prone to flooding in Collier County. Drivers pore through a flooded parking lot near the dock and a restaurant's parking lot nearby is inundated with water.
A beach access point off of Gordon Driver and 32nd Avenue South is also covered in water.
"I just think it's great. We missed this hurricane, thank goodness. The storm surge is not as bad as it could be and we are all lucky," said Weber.
Floridians feel fortunate Isaac just soaked parts of Collier County, but left without little damage.
