We rented a lovely home in Venice with a pool and an excellent location between the beach and downtown shops and restaurants... all within walking distance. Here are my son and granddaughter enjoying the pool.
We spent a day visiting a friend who spends winters in Florida. Here is my husband getting acquainted with the egret who regularly visits my friend's deck overlooking the intercoastal waterway. Across the water we had lunch in Cortez, an older working fishing village with every kind of luscious sea creature available for purchase in the market.
