Siesta Key (Sarasota, Florida) has three wonderful beaches on this 8-mile stretch of “the world’s finest, whitest sand” along the Gulf of Mexico.

A great place to enjoy boating, parasailing,  swimming, ballon riding, walking, biking, playing volleyball, biking…

When we were at the beach for our winter escape, the weather reached at the low 80s F in the afternoon, 7-8 degrees higher than the normal temperature.


For Jo’s Monday Walk. Jo is taking us to Rocha da Pena for a beautiful walk. 



Here is my entry for Jude’s Garden Photography FebruaryMonochrome


These are white Thai Jasmine flowers.

  1. I bet those flowers smell fabulous, Amy! And a bench too- Jude will think she’s upped and gone to heaven 🙂 Me, I think I’m going to lie on that beach, in the shallow water. Too hot to do much else. Thanks for playing along! :).


  2. That last photo is magical…..and tell me are people really dashing around in the waves at this time of year….how warm your beaches must be. In Scotland the beaches still look beautiful but are very cold right now!!


  3. Awwww Siesta Key! Love it and the Siesta Key Oyster Bar in the village. Great photos! Thank you for taking me for a walk on the beach. I did not get there this year due to sweet, sweet man’s shoulder surgery!
