Selby Botanical Gardens, Sarasota Florida

So we have started part two of our vacation in Sarasota, Florida visiting my boyfriend’s mother. Today we traveled to the Selby Botanical Gardens which was utterly beautiful. It was hot but because of the shade beneath most of the foliage it wasn’t too bad. It was a very nice tour around the gardens.

After we toured the gardens we went to Saint Armand’s Circle which is a very touristy part of Sarasota.  It was a great place to shop and have lunch. I was able to buy a cool t-shirt for my son and a neat turtle to add to my mom’s collection. This has been a different part of our trip because it has involved more activity. I am looking forward to what else we will see while we are here. I am hoping we will have time to get a cool picture in front of this cool statue that looks like the famous picture taken in New York after World War II.

I got a pretty cool picture of it today but I am hoping we can get one with the two of us in front of it.

On another funny note I found out that one of my high school friends that has lived here forever moved back to Texas like two weeks ago. Her sister still lives in Tampa though which is pretty cool. If we have time maybe I can at least see her before we leave to go back home.
