Back in the Saddle

Ringling Bridge 

I'm back in the saddle after my amazing adventure in the Pacific Northwest!  I've been enjoying some nice sunsets here (along with the pleasant spring weather we've been having).  I caught this sunset on Sarasota Bay last week after work. (Love working just blocks from the water!) This is the Ringling Bridge in downtown Sarasota which connects to the barrier islands, including Lido Key and Longboat Key.  Just before I moved to Sarasota, there was a big controversy whether to replace an old drawbridge with this one. Hard to imagine...because now, this bridge is iconic -- featured in most scenic photos of downtown -- and very popular with runners and walkers.  Can't imagine downtown Sarasota without it.

I have always loved this bridge! And some years back we stayed at a place on Longboat Key...I still have some sunsets from that adventure. This is a gorgeous shot and really does the bridge justice!
