One of the really nice things about retirement is that we can do exactly as we please and change our minds just because we want to......As we enjoyed second cup outside, we talked about some of the things we wanted to do during our time here. One of the places we've not visited is Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota. We always said we'd like to go, driven past it for years, yet we never seemed to make the time. So......no boat today. Change of plans.
After lunch we drove along Sarasota Bay to the Botanical Gardens. I have too many pictures to go over tonight, and I'm too tired, so I'll show them to you this weekend.

We talked so long we almost missed our dinner reservation at Ricks French Bistro. No problem, Rick held our table and we were rewarded with our favorite dinners.
On the way home we stopped at Morton's Market to pick up a little sweetie for dessert (right Judi?). We ate our goodies and watched the sun set at Coquina Beach before heading home to our sweet patient dogs.
