One of the best things about Florida is the great variety of plants. I sat on the steps of a shop in Siesta Key in the middle of the afternoon and sketched these. I can't explain the flag. It was just there, near the building.
Located on an island about an hour south of Tampa, Siesta Key is one of the best beaches in Florida and also attracts a lot of eclectic people. Happy hour at Siesta Key Village brings the crowds off the beach, especially for the daiquiris. Folks hang around for the oyster bars and the dancing with live bands at night.
Laid back and casual, Siesta Key is a great place for people who like to hang out.
