The Great Loop

Sarasota, FL

Our routine was to get up and ride our bikes on Siesta Beach and through the town for about an hour and fifteen minutes, hunt for shells, explore by car, visit friends, enjoy the pool which is right on ICW but mainly just enjoy the weather and area. We did tandem parasail which we really enjoyed and included some pictures from that adventure.
Sarasota and Tampa Side Trip

We spent New Years riding bikes, walking the beach and then went to spend New Years Eve with the Trainers. Had a nice cookout, wine and sparklers to finish the night.
A few days before, Jackie and I went up to Tampa to a book signing at Barnes and Nobles. Janet Evonovich, writer of the Plum novels was there as was a very large crowd. We had a great time and met her daughter and Janet.
