Anna Marie Island

I liked the quiet ambiance of Anna Marie Island. Its close proximity to the attractions in nearby Sarasota and Bradenton, including the Sarasota Opera, Selby Botanical GardensBishop Planetarium, St Armand's Circle, and fine dining on Longboat Key made it attractive to me.

Despite the rain and cold -- I felt would be a great place to spend a vacation . . . about as close to Puerto Escondido as we saw.
