“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.   IMG_4258 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! IMG_4268   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. IMG_4240   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.

  1. the theme is “winter landscape” not “snowy landscape”. I think that the Florida winter shots are great. Most of us came here to get away from those horrid northern winters.
    I love the one of your uncle with the post card – we do love to torment those left in the snowy climes don’t we.

  2. Nice series that does capture our winter with the snow birds.

  3. Memories of walking the jetty in Venice when my folks lived there.
