A day at Siesta Key Beach

It’s fun to see a place for the first time. I have been to Florida, but this is my first visit to Siesta Key. I went out for an early morning walk. The beach started out with powdery white sand, so soft. The flip flops came off right away. As soon as I reached the shore, I looked out and saw several dolphins swimming and splashing about.

Dolphins out there. Really!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I walked for about 3 miles. It was fun looking for photo opportunities. I found a place to have lunch in Siesta Key Village called Siesta Key Oyster Bar. It has good reviews on Yelp and live music playing at 1:00 on a Tuesday afternoon. Nice way to spend a warm partly cloudy day in Florida!

At the age of 51 I unexpectedly became a widow. For the first 6 months after my husband died, I was in shock and numb. I journaled and with the help of friends, family and therapists was able to get back to living my old life, even if it is now very different. Before I was married, I had spent a semester in England and backpacked around Europe. My husband and I moved from New York to California for 8 years and started a family. Travelling took a back seat to raising a family and going to work everyday. Since the loss of my husband I have visited a lot of places with family and friends and took a solo trip to Thailand. I am enjoying sharing my stories and adventures as well as some of my insights to how I am traveling the path of being a widow. I hope to share my stories and adventures as well as some thoughts on being a middle aged widow. While I have some great experiences traveling to Thailand and cruising to Central America, some of my adventures involve a trip to see a Broadway show in nearby Manhattan and a shopping trip at Bed, Bath and Beyond. If I can inspire anyone to go out and continue to live a good life that would be my greatest accomplishment.

  1. hehehe I can almost see the dolphins out there. Regardless, looks like a beautiful spring day (which is far warmer than we’re experiencing here in Romania right now). Thanks for reminding me that Spring is right around the corner!
