Sunset on Sarasota Bay, 12/7/15. Photo credit: Dad

 

Who wouldn’t be, after looking at this photo that Dad just sent… last night’s sunset off their veranda. This, together with family time, is what makes all the time and effort preparing for vacation so worth it! Getting excited now!

          True, true. Of course, it’s pretty un-fantastically sweaty in August here, too, but we have no such view. =)

    yeah, one thing you can definitely say about Florida is that the sky is gorgeous every. single. night.

      It really is. And Dad is perfectly situated to enjoy it… he enjoys it from October to May, then summers in Colorado. I love Oklahoma, but as far as scenery goes, we’re pretty mediocre. =)

    I think the sky at night in winter, when it’s clear, is pretty cool (my major experience of OK being driving through it late at night in early December)

      LOL- well, yes, and you didn’t miss much by driving through at night. There are some pretty places, but I can’t think of any that are breathtaking. Still, I’m spoiled by the night skies of my childhood in New Mexico.
