After driving 17 hours, through the night from DC...we arrived at M's parents' house in Sarasota! We got there around 7am, so we crashed for a few hours then headed right for the beach. After having a difficult time finding a parking spot, we finally made it to the water.
I should have had my Tumbleweeds over my eyes, then I wouldn't have been squinting quite so much!
M carried my camera bag as we walked up and down the whole beach. My hero.
