This is one of my favorite places to come and walk the beach. It's on the southern tip of Ledo Beach in Sarasota. The reason I like it so much is that's it's secluded and at the very tip of the key. Right behind where I'm standing is the end of the key and fishermen typically stand there to catch fish coming in or out with the tide.
There are hotels up further to the right, but this spot is a park so if you come here during the sunset hour you can get lost in the scenery, breeze and warm water at your feet without the crowds you get in front of the hotels.
I work in an office all day and when I come here and walk in the water its restorative. It's a natural consequence of being outside in a place like this. I have a dog that sleeps at my desk during the day. When I take him out for a mid-day walk he likes to lay down on the pavement and soak up the sun. He will not move until he feels better. I suppose that simple act restores something missing from being inside. The same is true for me when I come here to Lido, I am restored.
