Where I stayed

we arrived at venice after about a 1.5 hour drive down the coast, then we drove round venice for over an hour looking for a place to stay. Finally we decided to stop in the town and ask someone, we stopped right outside an ice cream parlour so had to go in and have one....they were good... the nice man in the place explained that they didn't really like tourists in venice and that it was a retirement place with the average age being 65. he suggested a place a bit north of venice where we might find somewhere. we had a walk along the shops anyway and Maureen saw a pair of flipflops that she liked,they were $105 , which is about 70, so she didn't get them. we got in the car and headed out of town, avoiding the zimmer frames as we went.
The place he suggested was suntan terrace on Nokomis beach, and it is great, real basic but cheap and the room is good, gonna go for a walk on the beach now. Tomorrow we head off to the everglades, and hopefully get a taste of alligator.

We had some great food in pop's sunset grill last night , and then to the beach to watch the sun go down.....bliss...this is probably one of the best beaches we have been to, white sand sun warm sea and not many people.
