“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.” ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo ~
Hmm… Winter Landscape – how am I suppose to show a typical wintery scene when I live on the sunny gulf coast of Sarasota, Florida??? I guess I’m just going to have to use some photos from when relatives came down to get out of their winter in January/February of this year. My cousin Don and his wife Juli came down from Minnesota. We took a drive down beautiful Casey Key and then enjoyed some sunshine at the North Jetty in Venice. I was amazed how many folks were just sitting in chairs along the banks of the Jetty. If we asked, I’d bet they’d say they were from Ohio, Michigan, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York! Juli got her toes in the sand and then we did some shelling before heading for lunch under the tiki bar at Spanish Pointe in Osprey. What a great way to spend the afternoon with our northern cousins. Uncle Gene and his wife Edie came down for several weeks from Wisconsin. Edie wasn’t too steady on her feet, so we went to Turtle Beach at the south end of Siesta Key to take a look, but we didn’t walk it. And after stopping for dinner, Uncle Gene wanted to get some Florida postcards to send back up to snowy Bayfield Wisconsin.
