One of my favorite memories from Manasota Key was a warm night we spent outside at the Inn where we were staying. The moon and stars were hanging in the sky with a rainbow of colors around the moon. There was a warm breeze off the Gulf of Mexico with the sound of waves crashing on the beach beside us. This is what I think of when I picture an exotic and relaxing time away from home. There is a ton of turtle activity in that area too but we weren't able to see any that night. Still one of my favorite memories though.
