We are in Sarasota because we’re presenting a Cloud Computing seminar to the Sarasota PC User Group tonight. When I consulted my AllStays Camp & RV app on my Droid smartphone, I noticed an Elks lodge with RV parking just about a mile away from our seminar location! Cool. Staying at Elks’ Lodges is fun because you have a restaurant and bar right next to you. This one is cooler yet in that there is a Tiki Bar – and that’s right where the RV parking spots are! Unfortunately it’s only open on Fridays and we’ll be leaving on Thursday.
We’re also just a few miles from what is touted as the Best Beach in the Nation. We got parked about 4:30, so we took a drive to the beach for sunset. I’m so glad we did! Happy Birthday Jim!
This sunset is just for you!
Cool spot. When we got home, we shuffled over to the main bar and had a delicious dinner at the Elks lodge. Unfortunately, they were out of birthday cake! We had to settle for cheesecake. We learned that the main kitchen guy just had a baby the day before. We also met John and Jim, long time Sarasota Elks Lodge members. It’s always a party when you stay at the Elks. A couple glasses of wine finished off our celebration, then we just walked around the corner to home.
We’re hoping to have time before we leave on Thursday to visit the Ringling Circus Museum and Mansion too.
