Enjoy a little jazz instrumental while you take a tour of our favorite town to visit: Sarasota, Florida.
In April, the jazz club of Sarasota has a cool jazz cruise along Sarasota bay.
We look forward to it every year. My husband is a former jazz musician.
He enjoys the club and all of its’ activities.
These photos of the jazz cruise are from last year. We missed it this year due to my daughters wedding in New York.
The ferry leaves from the Sarasota marina. Le Barge was the host boat.
The glass mirrored mermaid mascot was our guide along the waterways.
A light menu if offered along with alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages.
The band changes from year to year. Unfortunately, I can’t recall the name of this band.
It was a bit cool for April as you can see by the bands light weight jackets.
The once laid back cracker traditional Florida houses and cottages now gone to progress.
Boats await their captains for a day on the water.
This is a photograph of what happens when the waters are low.
Boats, birds and pelicans all vie for water.
The rich and the famous, yes, stars do have homes here.
Many are part of the summer stock theater productions and the arts.
People dot the waters edge at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens.
This is a favorite place I love going to visit. They specialize in orchid growing.
They have lectures, different exhibitions every year,
greenhouses with unusual orchids,
concerts on their magnificent grounds; especially, on Mother’s Day
or you can enjoy leisure walks in their luscious gardens.
After a beautiful day of cool jazz on the water, a walk among the palm trees,
flowering trees and plants is a perfect way to end the day.
