Tropical Paradise

James and I have been mulling over the idea of going to Florida to visit my family in June. And while we are trying to make our decision, here are a few photos taken around my hometown. I kindly borrowed them from a website promoting tourism in Bradenton and our beaches. Remember folks, this is where I was lucky enough to grow up. Don't hate me! I know, why did I ever leave, right?? I don't know. But anyhow, please enjoy these photos, I just can't help but to brag on my beautiful hometown.


  1. Where is this? I live in Florida. This looks like the panhandle, maybe?

  2. No, this is Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria Island, in Manatee County. I grew up five minutes from the beach, my parents and sister still live there. I'm always looking for an excuse to go back and visit!
