We love Sarasota! It's a pretty big city, but feels like a town. There's so much are decorating the town along the streets and in shop and restaurant windows. The streets are clean and adorned with flower planters that are in full bloom in the middle of December, as well as beautiful white lights circling the trunks of palm trees to wish us a Merry Christmas! Drivers yield for pedestrians along the streets. It was wonderful! We visited the Ringling Brothers Museum and ate at a great BBQ (Bricks) and Italian restaurant. There was a Starbucks nearby for Karen to walk to in the mornings while Tony got a few more minutes of sleep.
