The clocks have been turned back and we are headed towards the holidays and season here on Anna Maria Island. This week we are going to experience a drop in temperatures with a high only in the low 70’s! Although this cold wave will not last long and we will see the 80’s back soon it is always a thrill after the steamy summer passes to feel a bit of fall in the air. We do not experience color change in the leaves like our northern neighbors and many of our exotic plants are in full bloom! It is truly the tropical feel of the Island that is such a lure to our beloved Snowbirds, not to mention the much warmer temperatures even as fall fades away and winter casts it’s shorter days and creates the need to layer our clothing. Most winters one can easily secure a tan even though you may have to hide from a chillier wind! For those of you that are blessed to live here year round I believe I can speak for you and say we love the adventure of the change in seasons and relief from the heat of summer. We are thankful for our tropical breezes that cool us in the midst of summer and the bath-like waters that refresh us in the heat of the day. No matter what season you choose to visit the Island you will never be disappointed…you will always experience that rush of calm and peace as you cross the bridge to the Island and enter our “step-back-in-time” atmosphere. You will be entering a zone where nature abounds, sunsets amaze you and you will not be able to wipe that smile from you face…yes, it feels that good on Anna Maria Island! Come and enjoy a spectacular sunset…you will want to stay forever! IMG_0700
