Favorite thing: Surrounded completely by beaches, the three towns (Anna Maria, Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach) are part of an island-wide program to replenish and protect the coastline from erosion. The beaches provide spectacular vistas and are home to exotic wildlife that beguile vacationers and residents alike.
And this particular bird is preety comfortable just waiting till fish will come to it...
This photo was taken by the restaurant that serves a lot of fish dishes also there are always lots of fishermen around...
Favorite thing: Located on the North End of the island this is an historical landmark in the mouth of the Bay of Tampa. Great beach here!
