Sarasota, Florida

Last week, on Sunday I arrived to the Sarasota/ Bradenton area of Florida to spend a week with my friend Nadia, before she leaves the US for a permanent move to the UK.

Wednesday
 
We went to the Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium on Longboat Key.

Magnificent houses across the waterway.

In the conservatory.
 



Friday
 
There was a tropical rainstorm so we had lunch at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar and then came back to my friends house to watch Pride and Prejudice.
 
 
All in all it was a nice week away...but there's nothing like coming back home.

Sarasota has for a long time been one of my favorite places and your photos remind me why.
