Yesterday I shared with you an adorable boutique, POSH, in the shopping district of downtown Sarasota. Today, we cross the street and do the one MUST DO thing that any local will recommend.
Watch the sunset!
I don't know what makes Sarasota sunsets so magical....but they always deliver. Locals and tourist alike plan their supper times around the sunset. Everyone gathers for a spot on the water to watch. Think Key West attitude. In Sarasota, they do it too. It's a spiritual experience.
We decided to take it in at the Bayfront Park & Marina.
The marina is a wonderful and lively place. It's surrounded by restaurants, sculptural art, a playground, and enormous banyan trees (more on those banyans in a minute).
Most folks bring their friends, their family, their dogs (there were lots of dogs!), a blanket, their supper and a bottle of wine or cooler of drinks and make it a real moment. Much like a July forth tailgate, as onlookers might wait for a firework show.
Even the animals and birds seem to pause to take in the show.
While Big Daddy and I parked ourselves on an available bench, overlooking the harbor.....
Look! It's almost time......
