Recently we blogged about our trip to Delray Beach and their Green market. The experience inspired us to go back to the Sarasota Farmers' Market for what we think is probably the best of its kind in the State of Florida. At 40-years old, it certainly is one of the longest-lived in the Sunshine...
We were shocked and saddened when we heard the news. Osceola County's Desert Inn had been demolished in an accident. Word reached us while we were vacationing in Boca Raton. Apparently it happened in the early morning hours. A tractor-trailer rig, ironically carrying orange juice, left the road and ran head-on into the building. ...
In our many visits to Sarasota we had driven by the Marietta Museum of Art & Whimsy. But we never had stopped in to see it. When we did, we found it was fun at its best. When you look up the word eclectic, this is the picture they would show you.

On a recent trip to Anna Maria Island we were looking for a good breakfast. Everyone pointed us to Ginny & Jane E's. Our stop there vaulted it into the next round for our top Florida breakfast locations. Officially, it's known as Ginny & Jane E's at...
So we first tried Dimitri's on the Water in Tarpon Springs last November when we were there for Thanksgiving. This time however, we were staying off site as we'd been invited to a reception for the Tampa Boat Show. With all due respect, we didn't want to stay in The Big Guava - and Tarpon...
