The heat is crazy, we are crazier.

One of my favorite things in Sarasota is the farmer's market every Saturday.  Fresh fruits and veggies, flowers, artwork, fresh fish, old guys playing their steel guitar on the street corner, even a booth with g-free baked goods.  I love things like this. 
 In the background is one of my other favorites... Whole Foods!
Steve and I had been talking about walking down there one Saturday morning....well, Steve wanted to run, but then I reminded him who he had married.  Anyway, we planned to do it last Saturday... we slept in a little later than planned, then or course I kept forgetting things, so it was already pretty hot when we got started... but that didn't stop us!  It was about a 25 minute walk/jog to the Farmer's Market. 

We picked up a couple things, then headed over to Whole Foods to find some lunch!
 This guy was playing one of those Caribbean drums outside of Whole Foods.  Ever since going to Bayfront Park, I thought it would be delightful to go back and have a picnic there.  So, we picked took our sushi lunch and walked down there.  Here we are nice and sweaty by this point....

View of the bay from our picnic table....
  Steve really liked the eco-roof on this building.  I really like the clouds.

After our lunch we were energized for the walk back.  There are sculptures all over downtown Sarasota. We saw this one on the walk back...there were a bunch of them, different sizes, in front of the newspaper office building.  Kind of random.

 Back home!  This path goes from the parking lot back to the little park behind our apartment building.  We pretty much crashed after we got home... but it was a fun adventure!
