lazy beach day on Anna Maria Island & Cortez, Fl

Anna Maria Island, Florida.  
Ingredients for a perfect beach day include:
1. Momma Nan
2. Magazines.  loving real simple and budget travel currently.
3.  Your mothers homemade iced tea.
4. high waisted bikini, floppy hat, and big sunglasses.
sea oats.  i’m a fool for you, sea oats.  <3

And then… an early dinner at my favorite place on the west coast of Florida … The Starfish House
(where they filmed great expectations:)
fresh crab cakes, cheese grits, cole slaw, and hush puppies.
i will understand if you drool.

Hope you guys are having a happpppy summer day!
