I had heard of Sarasota – saw it on the Atlas –
Thought someday I shall visit –
Then – a friend invited us “OVER” from Winter Haven
where we had booked a AirBNB for a month!
So – we made the nearly two and one half hour drive
AND I WANT TO GO BACK !!!!!
I was so mesmerized by the city itself –
that I did not take pictures until we walked the beach!
We walked the main street – full of shops
both sides of the street
and all the places to sit down either outside
or inside and have breakfast – lunch and dinner!
Shorts – colorful shirts – music filled the air.
The vibe is what I noticed – and we could walk!
Right to the entrance of LIDO BEACH!
The sand – does not burn your feet for some reason!
And is like powder in some spots
and a mixture of crushed shells in others.
The waves – hardly any at all –
Big expanse of sand bar –
with tidal pools that were warm from the sun!
I found myself just calmed – no worries-
and wondering “HOW DO I GET BACK HERE”?
Thank you for reading Papa’s World
If you want – put this one on your bucket list
A must see and do
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
