When our Canadian snowbird cousins invited us for a getaway to sunny Florida, I did not hesitate to check on flights and calendar dates to make sure we could make this happen. What can be better than trying to beat the winter blues in mid-February? When I saw a picture of the villa, I was sold, there was no stopping me, I needed warmth on my skin, I longed to bathe in the sunshine, sit by that beautiful pool and sip on tropical drinks :).
As I write this, the high winds outside are brutal, we are being blasted by extremely frigid temperatures, a fresh coating of snow blanketed the roads last night, and all I can dream of are these beautiful memories from last week. I’m showcasing some of the pictures that I captured from our visit. Sit back and dream……
Taking a nature walk on the golf course where the villa is located. The fauna and flora were indescribably beautiful. Ibis, storks of various kinds, egrets etc strutted their stuff.
Now off to grab some seafood – what else??? lobster and oysters on the half shell of course 🙂
Our beautiful friend McKenzie (Kenzie) – We fell in love with this lovable Canadian pooch. I think she loves Florida too 🙂
Siesta Key Beach – gorgeous silver sand and about a half hour drive from Sarasota.
We will surely return if we’re invited next year :). Thanks Canadian snowbird cousins :))
