One-day road trip,
just a little bit south of me,
The journey was part business, part pleasure,
but ALL fun!
Sunshine Skyway approach,
Over the bridge, going down, down, down...
Approaching the Town of Longboat Key...
the best part...
AFTER the business!
The pleasure part starts
Um....help! I can't swim! ;)
morning glories mid day, beach residents
This is NOT a painting. It's the real thing.
So much nicer than my beach. All I have is
after high rise condo,
This is a slice of heaven.
A little rainbow house
to purchase touristy things
and get some food.
Didn't go in.
This was NOT on the beach, but in the small town part.
Imagine painting all those boards!
What if you lost count and made a mistake and
had to start over! :)
I really, really hated to leave this peaceful place.
and rain clouds...
told us it was time to go.
Sub-tropic storms can be sudden
Awwwww. Just one more look?
One more taste of the salt in the wind?
One more moment of silent peace?
Can you feel it?
Goodbye Coquina Beach..
Goodbye beautiful little quiet town...
Almost home. Final approach. Sigh......
