Escaped the grayness of Ohio (but I hear it's in the 80's there now) to head south for a while. My family's favorite southern getaway is Anna Maria Island on Florida's gulf coast. For more about this vacation spot visit these blog posts from last year:
first one, our dolphin/Egmont Key trip, my favorite shopping spot on the island.
One of our favorite lunch or snack stops, the Anna Maria City Pier, just a shack on stilts with the best peel and eat shrimp.
