appreciating what you have (part 1)

Sarasota, Florida
i think it would be fitting that my first blog post dedicated to an experience in traveling be about the beautiful place in which i live. far too often i forget what a wonderful and beautiful town i live in. perhaps i'm too busy plotting and planning other places i want to immerse myself in. but for whatever reason, every now and again (usually when family and/or friends visit) i stop and appreciate what i have. white sandy beaches, an artistically and culturally diverse community, parks full of lush vegetation and green marshes, water all around us in every shape and size (gulfs, rivers, creeks, lakes, ponds, the intercoastal water way), and citrus groves (which comes with one of the best aromas in the world: oranges). all of this, yet i never fail to find new discoveries with each exploration of this fabulous city.

a few pix to give you a feel of the area:

I'm here because I followed Ms. B.

I like your photos and appreciate your sentiments - I believe that travel improves chances for peace.

Sarasota is beautiful. Looking forward to more posts!
