Gorgeous Day in Venice!

What a great weather day in Venice!  After breakfast, which we ate outside, we got on our bikes and headed into downtown Venice.  Of course, we had to stop at the Upper Crust to share a delicious apricot scone!  We decided to get back on our bikes and ride along the Intracoastal Waterway Trail all the way to Caspersen Beach.  We passed 14 huge gopher turtles along the trail and also saw the large eagles nest we spotted last year.  Unfortunately, no eagles.  Walked along Caspersen Beach for just alittle and then rode back to the CG - about a 20 mile bike ride!  We were tired when we got back to Willie at 12:45, but quickly ate lunch and headed out to Nokomis Beach from 2:15 to 5:45.  It was such a warm, sunny day - perfect for the beach! (84 degrees today)

The beautiful Legacy Bike Trail into Venice!

The new bridge over busy Route 41 that is just
for bikers and walkers!

We saw lots of boats while riding the trail!

This is Caspersen Beach!

Our favorite beach in this area - Nokomis Beach!

Ken cooked hamburgs on the grill and we are looking forward to a relaxing evening watching football.  This was probably one of the best weather days since leaving PA.

A special thank-you to everyone that called, texted, or e-mailed regarding our Class A purchase.  We have no "buyers remorse", only excitement and wishing we could use it sooner.  Leaving it in FL for 2 months will be so hard.  Still do not have a clear picture of how everything is going to work out before and for heading home.  Should be interesting.
