In the heat of the Florida Summer, Kathy, Laurie and I took a action packed vacation on 

Sunny Siesta Key!

Late July, with Kathy & Laurie already sunburned, I came down for a week and we packed in a number of festivities.

Mom, Jean & Steve were making plans for dinners and an Intracoastal Cruise.  Peggy surprised us with a snap decision to come down too.

The first dinner we had together was at The Cottage on the Island.  Great burgers and the like.

Second dinner we had was at Jean's suggestion at the Capital Grill in Downtown Sarasota.  Ourdoor Bistro seating, with a live band belting out our faourite Rock tunes  - well it was quite an evening.  

Peg was able to join us for that meal and picture upper right is of the group after the dinner.  Goofy Bro-In-Law Steve is holding all the leftover Pizza's lest someone amble by and steal them.

In between both dinners we took a leisurely cruise up and down the IntraCoastal with Steve ably at the wheel.  Weather was perfect and we went down to Casey Key and then came up into Sarasota Bay.  Saw a brief Dolphin show just outside Tom Cruise's abode and got enough Sun to last the whole summer.

Alas, the week went by too quickly - so I had to return home while Kathy extended her stay into August!

Was Great to see the Family!
