The Ringling, in Sarasota, Florida

“While visiting The Ringling you are welcome to explore the Bayfront Gardens at your leisure. As awe-inspiring as any work of art, The Ringling Bayfront Gardens are a living treasure. Courting couples statuary watch over Mable’s Rose Garden. The shade the majestic Banyan trees provide. The delight inspired by the whimsy of the Dwarf Garden. The echoes from the past where the Circus King finally rests in the Secret Garden.”

Dr. Who?

Denise and I took a day trip to this years Tampabay Area Renaissance Festival at MOSI this past weekend. And, do you know who we saw there? Dr. Who? of course!

I am the only one who thinks that it was kind of ironic that I was leaning up against a “time machine” with Dr. Who, while I was wearing an “I can freeze time” t-shirt?

A little clowning around in Sarasota, Florida!

Should you find yourself in Sarasota, with a little time on your hands, might I suggest a visit to The Ringling | Circus Museum?

We found ourselves in this predicament, however, I must confess, a visit to the Circus Museum was the purpose of our visit to Sarasota. That and a trip to Yoder’s Amish Resturant! (But, Yoders’s is a blog topic that demands its own post and so, I leave it for another day!)

Route 66, hits the road!

Food trucks are all the buzz these days, drawing large crowds at food truck rallies. The rally held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa boasts the largest gathering of Food Trucks in the US.

As much as I love the diversity of menu items at food truck rallies and the ability to eat whatever cuisine you desire, there has always been one drawback for me, eating outside while walking around!
