thanks to my former french teacher from high-school i just recently discovered this gem - www.thecortezkitchen.com. Thanks Lucie aka Mrs. Schneering :-) I don't know how I did not know about this. So if you are into casual dining with an old Florida style, you will love this place. You can see the fishermen come in with theirs boats, white pelican while having delicious food. My phone was out of batteries, so no pics but here are a few from their website. They even have live music. Its just a few minutes from our townhome in Longboat Key and worth the drive.
Take a ride...
.There are some bycicles for young and older in the garage at the unit. Feel free to use them while vacationing with us.
Longboat Key Beaches
My kids love the beach across the street and you will too :-)
One of our all times favorites, the Old Salty Dog now offers breakfast. We enjoy going there, followed by a visit to Mote Marine across the street.
We love the baby seahorses at Mote Marine aquarium the most.
First came to the area in 1990. Love at first sight. Been living, visiting, enjoying it since then.
