Mark and Gabby Visit Florida !
I don't think my longtime family friends from Los Angeles, California spend too much time in the sun. It has been at least 6 years since the last time they visited the Sunshine State of Florida.
To celebrate their arrival we brought them to where the sun was the most intense, the beach. I did not choose any regular beach, I chose one of our frequently visited watering holes in Sarasota, FL. Lido Beach is a rare jewel on the west coast of Florida. Powdery fine sand mixed with nearby parking and a collection of shops and restaurants called St. Armand's Circle.
Lido Beach is the jewel of the Florida coast and Kilwin's Chocolate and Ice Cream is the jewel of St. Armand's Circle. Their toasted coconut ice cream in a homemade waffle cone is well worth the trip from California.
Hopefully, it will be sooner than six years until Mark and Gabby visit Florida again. Until then, I can only PhotoBlog my many scoops of Kilwin's ice cream all the way to Los Angeles.
