Today we went met some of our friends down at Bayfront Park in Sarasota. We ran/walked the Ringling Bridge and then went to the park to eat lunch and play. You can just see the left end of the bridge behind the condos. The bridge is about 1 mile long from light to light and is an absolutely beautiful place to run. They have wide pedestrian sidewalks than run along either side and there are always lots of people running, walking, and biking along it. The bridge joins downtown Sarasota to Longboat Key.
Bayfront Park is on a little peninsula that jets out into the bay, so the whole park is surrounded by water. There is a walking path that goes along the entire perimeter by the water and all the docks and beautiful boats. There is also a little restaurant and bar that you can either get to via walking through the park or dock your boat there. They also have a nice playground, lots of picnic tables and benches, large grassy areas for the kids to run around in, and sculptures and fountains. It really is very picturesque.
Tyler loved collecting and throwing the shells and climbing the trees.
This is the dolphin fountain at the very end of the park. You can see some of downtown Sarasota in the background.
Tyler decided he needed to stop for a few minutes and relax.
Jackson and his little friend Cameron.
It is easy to tell when Jackson is about to get into something now because he has started sticking out his little tongue whenever he is about to do something or get into something.
Tyler giving his brother hugs- so cute!
