Just a side note about "dog people" and "dog culture"... We have owned 3 dogs over the past 30 years. Until this most recent dog, Sammy, we just got a puppy, added it into the family mix and moved on. We had a dog, but we were not "dog people". I did not realize what this meant until this new dog.

Here is a quick list and our impressions so far for the area we are currently in:
Just off the coast of Englewood (between Sarasota and Fort Myers), Manasota Key is 7 miles in length with four beaches.The closest beach on the key (for us) is Englewood which is just over a draw bridge and features a boardwalk, picnic tables under shelters, restrooms and changing ...
