We originally were suppose to be in Vermont right about now. Rustic camping at its finest with lean-to's, no internet or phone, and showers that cost a quarter. When we decided to not go, mostly due to weather concerns, I admit I felt a little gloomy and deflated. The mountains for me are a meditation, not just a destination, and not being there has left a little longing hole in my heart. But, Hubs came up with a wonderful idea, and my spirits have lifted bit by bit since then. On Friday we packed up the car and headed to one of our favorite places in FL, Lido Key Sarasota.
aquarium and a marine laboratory where we met jellyfish, strange, vapid-looking fish, dolphins and loggerhead sea turtles.
St. Armand's Circle. Then we took the kids to one of our favorite art museums--Ringling Art museum. It sits on 20 acres of lush landscaping and is home also to an arts theatre, circus museum, and the tourable (invented word) home of John and Mable Ringling.

So, what exactly was I complaining about again?
Hope you had a wonderful weekend, too...
