Our Friends and Family encounters continue on the western coast of Florida
– the “Sun Coasters” .
In St. Petersburg we met with brother Gary and Ann, Brian and Tina Deters at the amazing new Salvatore Dali museum. They’ve “combined elements of the classical and the fantastical – much like the works of Dali” (and a perfect setting for this group!)
We called on O.C. & Sandy Allen in Reddington Beach, near Clearwater and enjoyed exploring the environs of their snow bird quarters.
Next – we’ve come to Naples, to brother Greg & Karen’s. The Naples Art Center held some treasures as did the chi-chi shops along 5th Avenue. Karen and I visited the beach, the shops on Marco Island, and Greg outdid himself with beautiful meals. I started referring to the place as my favorite “all-inclusive resort” and as ever – it’s wonderful to see what these artists do at home. They are masters of both comfort and beauty and their place couldn’t be more peaceful.
