We took a drive across the state from the east coast of Florida to the west coast this past weekend. We drove up to the town of Okeechobee and then went west. It's the rainy season so we did encounter some rain showers, pretty heavy at times. By the time we reached Sarasota it had all cleared. My daughter suggested that we have dinner at the Salty Dog on Longboat Key. The setting was lovely but the food was wanting. All our drinks were served in plastic cups, not my favorite. But you can't beat that Florida kicked back life style. As I have said before, I can't believe how much I love living here. I really enjoyed living in New York and Europe but I love living in Florida. Who would have thought!
