Relaxing in Sarasota

Duane and I went hiking in another park in Sarasota - about 20 miles out of town.  It's the Myakka Lake park.   Very popular and almost too crowded. 

Pretty lake and lots of birds.

Pretty Spanish moss growing on live oak trees.

 We found a deserted trail and took a nice long walk -  over 5 miles!

Neat environment.

Some birds along the way - I think they were pelicans.

Huge snail shells - they were all empty.

And alligators!! This is the closest I was willing to get!

A big crane.

Driving back to the marina, we passed this statue in downtown Sarasota.   It's the "Unconditional Surrender" sculpture that is depicting the famous WWII photograph from Times Square.

Back to the boat on our trusty transport.

And another lovely sunset.


  1. Must be nice, such lovely weather and surroundings. Bitter cold here. Of course, we are toasty, as usual, with our wood stove. MOM

  2. Very pretty...that was a long careful out there...
