Afternoon in Venice
I surprised SLW today saying "Lets take a drive down to Venice". Venice FL of course. :friendly_wink: It's about 20 miles south of us.
Had never walked around the town of Venice before, usually we just drive thru it on the way to
Sharkys. We did a little shopping, found a place that had Christmas stuff on sale. Went out for a
Then we drove to the North Jetty and I got some pics...
Pretty cloudy today as you can tell but in the 90s and humid!!
It was so hot that I wore a sleeveless blouse. Usually I'm always feel cool and drive SR crazy by turning off the overhead fan in the rooms. They went overboard with fans in this house. I know on HGTV the decorators start almost every remodeling scheme replacing fans with chandaliers. That might work in other parts of the country, but definitely not Florida. :biggrin-new:

The day was a success. We found a nice little place for lunch and then went to a gift shop were they were "celebrating" Christmas in July. I got some cool gifts for $1 each. Two had been $17.95 each and the rest were $15.95 retail. They'll make nice little stocking stuffer type gifts for neighbors and family members.
The surprise was that SR volunteered (his idea) to go to that nice little shopping area. I was totally amazed.
I love the pictures & the fact you had a greyt day together! :love_heart:
My dad lives kind of near there. He's currently in Rotonda West, but used to live in Englewood.
All I remember is old people, everywhere we went and looked. I don't know how you can stand driving there. Ugh. I prefer our end of I-75, where we all drive like maniacs.
