Enjoying Venice, FL

Dad and Marilyn’s condo is lovely.  It’s two bedrooms, and it is right on a golf course.  There is a playground for the kids, and there is even a pool.  In case you are wondering how many people you can fit in a two-bedroom condo, the answer is nine.  Dad and Marilyn were in their bedroom, Amy and I slept in the twin guest beds, Stefanie and Rob slept on the couch/pull-out bed.  Jeff slept in the dining room on an air mattress, and Carley and Avery slept on an air mattress  in the guest room with Amy and me.  It was wall-to-wall people.  What a slumber party!

The next day we packed a picnic lunch and went to the beach in Sarasota.  Dad says it one of the finest beaches in the country.  It was unusually windy that day, there was even some surf.  By the time we left we all felt thoroughly sandblasted.

  1. The Gulf side of Florida is so much nicer than the ocean side! For years my family would rent a time share in the area just north of Clearwater. We’ll be staying in Panama City Beach on our next adventure, very much looking forward to that. Looks like you got some fantastic weather!

    • Good luck on your Panama City Beach adventure! I hope it’s not as windy as our day at the beach was. But, yes, we did have good weather overall. I missed out on Clearwater… more about that in my next post.
