Spring Training Florida Style......

We are staying @ a pretty funky 1950's Motel! Squished between some high rise luxury hotels here in Sarasota Florida is the old Gulf Beach Motel! As you can tell by the slide show, the art work in the room is really "creepy beachy"! We have a kitchenette, two very uncomfortable double beds, a nice flat screen TV mounted to the wall, and a small screened in front porch! There is a grill pit across the way where families seem to gather every night to bar-be-que & let's not forget the shuffle board? There's even a small swimming pool! So why are we here? We are just a few yards to the sand and beach and surf! We come so Stephen can attend spring training baseball games & I can sit on the beach and read until my heart is content!

We stocked up on goodies from Whole Food Market .... but just the same, we did eat dinner out last night at the posh Crab & Fin restaurant in St Armands Circle, and breakfast this morning at a upscale eatery! I personally dined on a goat cheese & chive omelette! Good time motel living!

I guess that's where old flip flops go to die. The beach looks awesome, though. Know you're having a great time.
