Lido Key is an island in Sarasota County, Florida, right next door to better-known Siesta Key, home to Trip Advisor's Traveler's Choice Winner, Siesta Beach. We had been to both islands before, but I have always preferred the quieter Lido Key.
Though I hadn't made reservations, I headed to Lido Beach Resort, and hoped that they had a room. We had stayed there before, and were pleased with the accommodations. We were in luck; they had a room, and it was right next to the beach and pool area.
We dumped our overnight bags in the room, changed quickly into our swimsuits, spread on some sunscreen, and headed out to the beach. My favorite activity to do while lounging--reading. My pick for the weekend--Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult. If you haven't read it, you should. I enjoyed all the twists!
Check out the yellow and white striped towel on the lounge chair in front of me. The hotel supplies these to guests; that meant we could use the ones we brought as pillows!
I didn't want to leave the beach, but both of us were hungry, since we didn't have breakfast or lunch before we left the house. So, we went back to the room, unpacked our few things, showered, changed, and then started walking towards St. Armands Circle.
First, we saw a condo (image on left) for sale. Doesn't hurt to dream! I'd love to live right across the street from the beach!
Then, we saw a single home (photo above) for sale. Ah, now I think I'd like that one instead. We continued walking along the small coastal road and then turned right towards St. Armands Circle. Our stomachs were growling! This statue greeted us as entered the circle; the woman looked like she might have hunger pains too!
Where do you go to be worry-free?
