    spent the weekend here, one of our fav locations. went to Pops for dinner. drone shots were early Sunday... the whole area gets packed!

    ..was too windy but wanted to take the pic of outgoing tide where the local river drains to Gulf, its brown tea water, there is a line you can swim back and forth through where the green intercoastal waters collide with river flow..

    good thing is you just move over to the sandbar just on other side of split..

    have you eaten at Crows Nest restaurant?

    We have heard very good things about it. Have stayed there at the Marina a few times overnight while moving north or south. Just never made it up to the restaurant. Always a big crowd, people waiting to get in.

    Great pics........We transited the Venice inlet last month for the first time on our way to Sarasota and the surrounding area. The water and area are beautiful. We will definitely be back to spend time in Venice......

    Those are fantastic spots, and some great pics. The Admiral and I need to get down that way one of these days.

    What are the "marinas of choice" in that area for both transient "resort style" docking and long term storage - are there any dry stacks close by?

    Love the pics and love Snake Island! We’ll be headed there or Jewfish depending on where we rent a boat when we come down the week of the 4th of July.
