Lido Key is famous for its pristine beaches. People come here from all over the globe to find shells Some of my favorites to find are tiger paws, clam shells, and coquinas and sand dollars. Through the mass of broken bits I did mange to find the perfect sand dollar right on the beach. Of course on my last day I dropped it in the parking lot of the Tampa Airport and broke it!
As we walked down the shore the white sand gently slopes and dissolves into the blue water. The quiet waves of the gentle gulf seem so different from the chaotic wild water of California. However, I did see at least one surfer trying to ride the tide.
After spending the morning at the beach, we decided to walk around St. Armand’s Key with its upscale mix of hip art galleries, restaurants and apparel boutiques. We stopped at Cha Cha Coconuts for some pina colas and nachos. I think Jonathan would have enjoyed it.
Finally we ended the day at the Sandbar Restaurant, which is on the north end of Ann Maria Island. The food is overpriced, yet it remains a favorite place of mine for enjoying beautiful sunsets over the expanse of white sand by the Gulf of Mexico.
