Last month our family took an interesting vacation in Siesta Key, FL — outside Sarasota. Interesting b/c the moment we arrived, we were greeted with gusting winds and downpours thanks to Tropical Storm Debby — with Sarasota virtually a direct hit. This last nearly 3 1/2 days. Pounding rains and winds on our 11th floor condo facing the Gulf. Read: 40-50 towels later, we were still mopping up the water into the condo. In any event, we were blessed with 2 1/2 great days at the end of our week one which included a luscious few hours parasailing. Sadly, I didn’t take my good camera but did pay the parasailing folks for photos which is what some of these are — but also had Jack’s little PNS. Funny enough, my mom took photos from our beach spot as our boat did a turn of us right in front of her.
