Sarasota to Gasparilla
Tuesday morning we left Clearwater for Sarasota. It was about 62 miles south, the weather was still chilly, but it was sunny, and the water was calm. Sarasota is a beautiful area, we did not stay long enough to explore, another city to go back to.
We left Sarasota Thursday and came to Gasparilla, the temps today were in the low 60's and the sun was bright, we actually feel like we are in Florida . There were allot of dolphins in the ICW today, but they were not coming up. I took a few pictures, but am still trying for that "great " dolphin pix, in the mean time this is what I got.
Tomorrow we head for the Ft Meyers/Cape Coral area, we will try to catch up with our friends Andy and Terri, and see the area.
Lisa, it was good to hear from you, say hi to Tom for us. Hopefully we will get together with you guys before we go to your kids weddings!
