Well of course we knew it was going to be crowded, but if you know how to work around them……….or just avoid them all together you can do everything you want without the hassle. We managed to not have one run in with any unruly crowds. I don’t have much of a tolerance for any type of other tourists in my way. Especially when visiting home during one of the busiest weeks of the year for Anna Maria Island. As we drove over the Florida border on the Thursday before Easter there was a small chance that maybe we had brought the weather with us. Good weather that is, evidently spring had not sprung in Central Florida yet and we hoped it would while we were on Anna Maria. Needless to say it was ideal. Sunny with highs of 78 and no rain…… unbelievably nice. Water was still a bit chilly but clear as glass and the beach and sun were abound.
We crammed it all in……in 10 days.
Beach, beach and more beach the first few days and then when the kids wanted something new, boat trip to Egmont Key and Star Fish Co for grouper sandwiches, Jungle Gardens down in Sarasota, St. Armands Circle for some window shopping, and they, never a bust, South Florida Museum to see “snooty” the resident manatee eat some lunch.
Check back we will give some more details about the excursions.Spring Break Was Awesome,
