Wordless Wednesday: Stunning Siesta Key Sunset

Sadly, I don’t take advantage of my coastal location to enjoy the nightly sunsets. It seems they’re only a scheduled event when I have visitors from out of town. Last Friday, I enjoyed this Siesta Key sunset spectacular with my mom at the corner of  Beach Road and Avenida Messina. It reminded me a very tiny bit like Mallory Square in Key West, back in the day before performers and development.

Hope you enjoy this sunset and the accompanying video.
