Ah, Lido Beach Sarasota.
It could have been anywhere.
We had vacation before our vacation, in-between our vacations, and after our vacation. What we didn’t do was hurry.
Sarasota was lovely, all over, even if I’m not good at sitting around in the sun, I have to admit, there’s a certain appeal. It’s peaceful. You don’t much lift a finger and the scenery is gorgeous, even if it’s not my kinda scenery. People do go on about palm trees…
Yes, part of the time, we submitted ourselves to traditional vacationing by staying in a luxury hotel with a gulf view, because, well, it’s a cliche for a reason!
Get up in the morning, open the curtains, lie in bed for a while, let the view work its wonders on you before waking the children.
Eat a meal and watch dolphins jump and swim from the oceanfront dining room.
Go play at the beach.
Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Is this the kind of vacation you like? I think it’s nice for a day or two, then I get restless. I like to go and do and see.
