A 52-Week Photo Journey

Week 22 – #18. Holiday Spirit


Every year, the Sarasota Yacht Club has the Lighting of the Fleet in preparation of the Christmas season and it’s one thing I try not to miss. This year, however, I took a side trip up to Tarpon Springs with several photography buddies and it just so happened that the Lighting of the Fleet was held on the same night, so I missed it. 😦 I did not miss out on a lot of fun, however, because the people in Tarpon Springs were in the holiday spirit. Boats, storefronts and people were ready for Christmas!

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish my friends and family a joyous Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year. Thanks for the love you have so freely given to me throughout the year.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).
