30. One Shot With Three Shapes

A terrific find in Sarasota is Vintiquity Lane . The name is a combination of vintage” and “antique”, which should help you imagine what you would find here. Last time I was in this vintage marketplace, I found the perfect picture to take for this theme. And there they are – squares, rectangles, and ovals!

Mark your calendar – Vintiquity Lane is only open the 3rd weekend of every month.

23. If Flowers Could Talk

These flowers would say “We’re going to Disneyworld!”

This display greeted us as we arrived at Epcot for the 2018 International Flower and Garden Festival. No one does flowers like Disney!!

35.  Rows of … Fallen Trees

This past weekend we braced for Hurricane Irma as it appeared that Sarasota may be in its path. Wind and rain pelted our homes Sunday night.  On Monday many of us dealt with power outages. As ours came back on, Tuesday my mother was ready to return to her home. As we took a ride down the newly opened Lorraine Road, we saw rows of uprooted newly planted trees.

As we drove from Lakewood Ranch, to Sarasota, out to Siesta Key, and then through downtown Sarasota, we noticed that most of the destruction left behind was fallen newly planted trees that had not been established yet and also older mature trees.  This row of trees will be easy to set right up again, but many many trees did not fair so well in our neighborhoods. And now the clean up begins.

A1. In a Bowl

In a bowl…ing alley!  Labor Day weekend was the annual “Good Old Days” event at Sarasota Lanes.  Bowling, beer, soda, and hotdog prices were rolled back to one dollar each.  Word was put out in our new Del Webb Lakewood Ranch neighborhood to introduce new residents to our local bowling alley.  We filled seven lanes and will most certainly return another day!
