Leslie's December Blog

Christmas at the Beach

It is hard to believe Thanksgiving is over, December is here, and in just a few weeks we will be celebrating the coming of 2015!

We have just returned from a few days back in Buffalo N.Y, and now remember why we love waking up to Sunshine and Palm Trees!

From the sugar sands of Sarasota, Irv and I wish you all a joyous holiday season. It is the time of year to give thanks, and to celebrate family and friendship. We thank all, we have had the pleasure of meeting, and we are thrilled for those we have been able to help find a bit of paradise here in Sarasota.

It has been pretty busy around Sarasota this past month. The Chalk Festival has relocated to Venice, with artists from all over the country participating. It was a sight to behold.

The Siesta Key Sand Sculpture extravaganza was also held, and as you can see, there is no shortage of artistic availability around here.

For those of you visiting this month, you can look forward to many exciting things in the area.

We start off with the Holiday Boat Parade. Imagine close to 50 boats of all sizes cruising down the Sarasota Bay, lit up like Christmas trees, and Santa with Rudolf leading the way!

How about Breakfast on the Beach on Anna Maria Island – while you are waiting for your "all you can eat" pancakes being prepared, gaze out on the Gulf, and look for the parade of dolphins making their daily run.

There is glamour galore around to light up the town as well. St Armand's Circle celebrates its Annual Holiday night of lights, as well as all kinds of festivals and light shows around the entire area including the Ringling Museum.

The new University Town Center Mall, and surrounding area is spectacular. For the full schedule of events, click on the Official Sarasota Website Link.
