Paradise close to Home

Since I live in Florida I dont have to go far to get a beautiful paradise getaway with my Hubs. Since the weather is slowly getting cooler we figured to make a trip down to Anna Maria Island to enjoy some sun and beach time before it gets to cold. Its a 2 hour drive to a very cute little beach town with an amazing view of the ocean.

Our Destination

We rented bicycles and explored the little town, lots of lil boutiques and family owned shops. 
Then we had dinner on the beach and watched an amazing sunset.
Spent most of our time relaxing at the beach.
