Another day, another beach... this time on Longboat Key. It was really windy so we found a little alcove and stayed nice and warm. The shoreline has changed so much through the years - it's amazing to see how it's changed since we first came here almost 20 years ago.
That evening we had dinner at the Columbia Restaurant in St. Armand's Circle - one of our favorites - and then went to a Christmas light display at Grace Church in Sarasota. It was a beautiful and moving reminder that this season is all about Jesus' birth.
Gifts that day ~
the beauty of the unspoiled beach and surf
good food and fun with family!
a church like Grace Church that put hours and hours into a Christmas display like this to bless the area
Hope your day is full of gifts - take time to notice them!
