Artsy Fartsy Sarasota

Since we've been in Sarasota for a few days now, we decided to actually see what Downtown Sarasota looked like instead of going straight to the beach. We found a parking spot right on the main street and were surprised to notice we didn't have to pay for parking (where we were), but as we walked across the street, there was meter parking and a daily parking stand where you get a ticket to put on your dashboard...we got lucky. We walked around and looked at all of the cute shops that they have. It was still pretty early in the morning so not a lot of people out but it was nice just the same. Still very refreshing.

We walked all of Downtown, down to Selby Five Points Park. It's very artsy and beautiful down there. We saw the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre, The Sarasota Opera House, the Public Library which is huge and gorgeous, a Starbucks that looks like it cost a million dollars for a cup of coffee and art EVERYWHERE. It was neat and I'm glad we stopped for the time we did.

After the park we were on our way to the beach and since the morning never really turned into a hot afternoon, as we were sitting waiting for one of the drawbridges to go back down, we veered off into a parking lot of have lunch. We ended up spending half the afternoon here because it was so quiet and sooo windy outside anyway.
