Sunshine Days

Siesta Key, Florida

I've read that "key" is Spanish for Island. "Siesta" of course is what the lazy Europeans do in the afternoon (Germans, Spanish. etc.). They say that the beach at Siesta Key is the 2nd best beach in the world. I don't know who it is that says that. It would be very tiring to travel to every beach and do a rating. Personally, I prefer the less crowded beach just North of here at Fort Desoto.

After the beach, we had alligator nuggets, fried okra and Key lime pie. We also visited the outside of a Real Estate office and looked at pictures of Sarasota homes and condos. Prices seemed quite reasonable, but we're not in the market.

Mrs. Phred is having new flooring installed in the RV today. She doesn't like the carpet that came with the RV. It gets too dirty when we are at a muddy campground, spill coffee or track in dog poo. She's picked out a linoleum product that looks a lot like oak planks.

We resolve to go to the beach more often, but to remember hats and sunscreen.


  1. wish we could go to the beach...woke up to the 30's this A.M..... i like the picture changes at the top...sil

  2. Beaches are for Speedos and CoCo oil.......not for snow birds!

  3. What is a Conch Fritter?

  4. Hey Dude,

    We're not snowbirds. We've lived in Florida since 1944. How about them Seminoles?
