Exploring the Sarasota Area Photo Gallery
This Gallery includes a diverse group of pictures. There are several pictures from our favorite scenic drive in Casey Key where you’ll see some fabulous beachfront homes. However, it’s not just the homes that make this an enjoyable drive; it’s the winding road that is over-arched with trees, the lush landscaping and often stunning Gulf views that we enjoy most.
You can couple a drive through Casey Key with a visit to the Casey Key Fish House or to the Casey Key Drum Circle that celebrates sunsets Wednesday and Saturday evenings.
At the southern tip of Casey Key you’ll find the North Venice Jetty, which is a good place to spot Manatees. This is a popular area for shelling, fishing and snorkeling. The beach that extends to the north is a favorite with locals, and great for walking. Across from Casey Key you’ll see Venice to the south.
The Crystal Classic Sand Sculpting Festival Photo Gallery
The Crystal Classic International Sand Sculpting Festival is nothing short of amazing. While we are always booked far in advance, it is not unusual for local or even traveling artists to sculpt masterpieces on any given weekend. Maybe the pictures below will inspire your young sculptor to build a masterpiece. You will find a selection of sand molds and beach toys in the entry closet.
