Siesta Key, FL Vacation (Post #2)

The smile and wave are for all of you who visit my blog. I'm looking forward to sharing some of the fun and hopefully you'll be able to make sense out of it all.
Since I'm on vacation and don't want to take the time to be organized, my posts will be a hodgepodge of photos taken here at the Siesta Dunes condominium in Sarasota, FL on Siesta Key and a summary of what we're doing.
Regarding the food, it's terrific. We always buy the grapefruits, grapefruit juice and key lime pie when we're down here. I just had to try some strawberries from Publix this year and we all voted yes to fresh shrimp with sauce. Everything we bought delighted our tastebuds, surpassing our expectations. Feel free to help yourself to anything you'd like.
Lon and I start the day with a cup of coffee on our balcony on the 4th floor. We have a great view of the grounds, the pool, the gulfside deck (not clear in the photo but we know it's there) and the gulf waters.
Today, Sunday, was a duplicate of yesterday, that is, a day with clear blue skies and plenty of good old-fashioned FL sunshine. Lon and Jared went to a baseball game (an annual event for them) in Bradenton this afternoon while I did my favorite things here at the beach.
Drop in again soon and I'll feed you, warm you and even treat you to a mild sunburn.

Be right there. Do I need to bring a sleeping bag, or do you have a roll-away?

PS: The Crocs and the striped pants are way cool.

Heaven, you're in heaven! What a wonderful vacation location! You look Marvelous in your striped pants - only working out as much as you have makes you able to wear horizontal stripes so well!

Hey Neighbor! Isn't the weather beautiful. I'm so glad to see that your family is having a great time. If only the wind would die down a little this week would be perfect.

Looks like a wonderful place to be and it sounds like you are having a ball. Which you deserve.
Shaddy, are you aware of how beautiful you are.
You are such an inspiration to me, so much so that I am back in the pool. I seriously hope that I look half as lovely as you do when I am as young as you. You radiate beauty and vitality and it is a joy to see an older woman looking so lovely.
Have a wonderful time.
Much love

Hey, girlfriend.... Save me a hunk of that key lime pie, okay? Sounds like you are having a good time!

Hey, sexy lady. You look GREAT but try to relax and enjoy, no North Pointe workouts.
Sounds like you're having a blast! I wish I were there.
No, I get visiting in-laws instead. Oh well.


You look so happy Shaddy!
Continue to enjoy the relaxing days...please apply spf 1000! haha...
