On Location: Bradenton Beach, Florida
The Sarasota area won't disappoint coastline explorers looking for cool community character with a sense of authenticity. After sketching on Coquina Beach (see previous post), we motored north to Bradenton Beach, a small island community with a quaint, compact village center. The landmark clock tower shown here is visible from the main road, and pulled us off the highway (as it was designed to do) and through the village to the historic Bridge Street Pier. We found some shade and cool drinks, and captured the scene shown here, while meeting a number of other travelers and local characters in the process.
