Bob's Train, a hard-to-find bar/ restaurant and circus memorabilia archive hidden behind a lumber store.
Four Pullman rail-cars in various stages of restoration — including the We found this beautiful #sunset in Sarasota, Florida.
This location is easy to find as you walk along the waterfront and marina area. We loved this little row boat during low tide.
#travel #boat #water #ocean #goldenhour This is the former location of the Sarasota Boxing Club. Word has it, a dispute with the landlord forced them to re-locate. This mural still adorns the south wall. #localgem
#HighWithoutWalls Poker Runs America has many regional events throughout Florida each year including one in my hometown, Sarasota. This is a helicopter shot taken while shooting a documentary on one of the boats.
This event delivers lots of Boats, Business, and Beautiful Bodies each year and the party never ends !
Next run is the Season Opener Poker Run, Tampa / St. Petersburg / Sarasota , FL March 15-16, 2013
#localgem This 6-7 foot gator was hanging out on the Highlands course # 12 water hazard. My ball landed about eight feet away. So... Analyzing which club would be best for my shot AND self defense.
We have alligators... if you visit Sarasota they will not be hard to find. Just go to any golf course or large water retention pond.
#localgem Open since 1957. This is the best place to have a hangover meal in Sarasota! Always a diverse and .... entertaining crowd. A sarasota must visit in my opinion.
#Lunchtime #localgem Exploring the drink menu... This Mojito was exquisite ! A cute little restaurant with some unique dishes on the menu. They have table service but I think the best experience is sitting up at the bar.
TIP = for cool drink pics get someone to light the drink from behind with their cell phone flashlight app.
#cocktail #localgem Fluffy ricotta pancakes topped with Meyer lemon curd, fresh blackberries that looked like mini clusters of grapes and a serving of vanilla bean syrup with a side of hash browns topped with cheese and onions.
In addition to delectable cuisine, the location of Station 400 has a great backstory. The restaurant is located inside a train station the was built in 1852 in Kentwood, Indiana. The building was dismantled, moved and reassembled in the Rosemary District of Sarasota, Florida. Another exotic plant that captures insects Exotic plant life at this Botanical gardens. This one can trap insects
#red flowers are special A slice of Provence in Sarasota Circus City Salvage in Sarasota is an amazing place to visit if you are in Sarasota. Nice park in Sarasota Florida, including water jets and playground, kids had a blast!
There's also a tiki bar next door for a cheeky cocktail.
#kidsfun Great place to enjoy a walk and beautiful flowers! In Florida the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens (15 acres, including 9 acres of display gardens) is the only botanical garden in the world dedicated to the display and study of epiphytes, especially orchids and bromeliads, and their canopy ecosystems, with a focus on botany, horticulture and environmental education. Ongoing research and exploration for tropical plants attracts worldwide attention of international scholars and plant enthusiasts. #springfun Sunset view from the docks. J Dub's is a fun local brewery full of color! They have a pile of games in the corner of the tasting room, a food truck out front, and a beer garden in the back. We did not sample the food truck offerings, but the beer garden was lovely. We enjoyed our flights at a picnic table. And I do mean enjoyed! The beer was pretty good. They had a wide variety from Dark-O, a hearty imperial stout, to Mr. Weisse Guy, a light hearted sour. The sours were some of my favorites.

#BeachBound One of the most beautiful gardens to visit in Sarasota Florida. A photographers botanical dream. Holiday lights at Selby Gardens tonight in Sarasota, Florida, USA. One of the finest examples of Japanese horticulture Beautiful docks This place is Fantastic !
The sidecar was yummy. Great place for a special dinner and one of Sarasota's finest restaurants.
If I was going to tell a visitor to the area to visit our city's best dining experience... this is it!
#localgem If you near exit #210 in Sarasota and looking for Sushi..... This is the best place... The best place near exit # 210. It's more a neighborhood place if you know what I mean..... And, rumor has it, there is no MSG! Yoder's Fresh Market. Locally grown produce, jellies and lots of organic products also fresh baked goods, and a wide variety of Amish cheese. There are always a ton of three-wheel trikes parked here as it seems to be the preferred method of travel for this Amish community.
The restaurant next door, also Yoder's, was featured on Man vs Food for their insane Pie's !

Dolphin Fountain A short break to Sarasota if you want to relax by the beach and the pool. There are plenty of places to eat out in the evening including a gorgeous tapas restaurant in the centre. Visit the Botanical Gardens to experience all the beautiful nature Florida has to offer. Caught this cloud formation at the perfect time. Was with the love of my life. Water lilies Trader Vic's invented the Mai-Tai in 1944. This is that original recipe still being served. Picture was taken at a new pilot endeavor by the Trader Vic's chain that deviates from the higher scale and priced establishments they are known for and caters to a more moderately priced and appointed family style restaurant . Trader Vic's Island Bar & Grill. Oh....and it's absolutely delicious !!
