A beautiful backdrop for this bird with the sun sparkling off the waves.
On the tip of Longboat Key, at the channel that connects the Gulf of Mexico with the Sarasota Bay, there exists a chunk of sandy paradise known colloquially as Beer Can Island.
The landscape of this beach is decorated with the remnants of countless fallen Australian Pines (Casuarina). An invasive tree that even after its death lingers. The death of many a chainsaw blade is blamed on its incredibly hard wood.
The pure white sand with tree stumps protruding at various angles and entire trees fallen out into the Gulf, makes for a more adventurous beach endeavor. The sun setting over the Gulf of Mexico at the beautiful Coquina Beach.
I tried to make it a point every night in Florida to make it somewhere to watch sunset.
What is a coquina? Well, it's a small clam (Donax variabilis). On the beach of its namesake, you can find these guys in the surf after each wave subsides. Look closely and you can see them stand up on end and burrow themselves back down into the safety of the sand. Mar Vista Dockside Restaurant and Pub is the most perfect dining atmosphere I've ever encountered.
Located on the Sarasota Bay on Longboat Key, you can dine just feet from the water under a canopy of live oaks entwined with subtle lighting.
The restaurant resides in a building built in 1912. Surviving a hurricane in 1921, makes it one of the twelve oldest surviving structures on Longboat Key. Maybe a green heron being a little camera shy?

The Coquina Baywalk on Leffis Key contains 1,500 linear feet of boardwalks that meander through the mangrove forest, a 26ft tall hill that allows a 360 degree view including over Sarasota Bay, tidal ponds and the preserve is a nationally significant estuary.

A local tradition on Beer Can Island is to find a seashell and place it on the exposed roots of a fallen tree while making a wish. A wish tree, if you will.

Jewfish Key is a private island that we kayaked around. We saw a couple dolphins playing nearby too, but the main attraction to the public is large sandbar nearby.
We rented our kayaks from a place called Kayak Jack's. They were great! You pick a drop-off location and specify a time and your kayaks will be awaiting you, ready for launch!

Beer Can Island on Longboat Key is lined with mangroves and parts of the beach are riddled with their stumps. It's an awesome place to go exploring, shelling, and wildlife watching!

GREAT diner breakfast on St Armand's Circle! Sunset over the jerry.
#BeachBound Natural beach debris glistening in the setting sun.
#BeachBound Fresh caught stone crab claws and hush puppies. I love the weird and unusual. I actually had to climb through to get this shot. Enjoy this public beach with sugar sand and clear, calm blue warm Gulf waters. It has plenty of free parking spots, restrooms, picnic area, boat ramp across the street. #AquaTrove Driving from Anna Marie Island to Longboat Key is short and delightful. Small community with great fishing. Beach walking
