Dog Beach

Today started out on a great note.

Broken Egg Restaurant

Once everyone was awake, we headed out to the Broken Egg for a hearty breakfast.

Peak Inside

The last time we went to the Broken Egg, Ryan’s banana walnut streudel stuffed French toast stole the show. This time we were smart and ordered the exact same dish to share, along with a large plate of fresh fruit.

Fresh Fruit

The French toast was just as delicious as we remembered.

Dog Beach

With full bellies, we headed back to the house to pick up Sadie to head to Venice to the dog beach.

Water Dog

The beach was full of friendly dogs.

Ryan and I had a great time swimming and soaking up the sun while his mom and her boyfriend enjoyed reading under the shade of a big umbrella.

Enjoying the Shade

Catchin' Some Rays

Coercing Sadie for a Swim

Play Time!

Sadie had a blast jumping in and out of the water and chasing dragonflies. I think she’ll sleep well tonight!


Fun in the Ocean

Ryan and I realized this was our first trip to the beach all year!

It felt good to feel the sand between our toes and the salt water on our skin. I see more beach days in our future!

We’re planning on spending a few more hours in Sarasota before packing up and heading back to Orlando.

See ya from O-Town! 😀
