It's a little hard to put into words the kind of place this is but I'll try. Imagine walking along a gentle shore in the afternoon with the whole beach to yourself. This is a reason Venice is a little known gem among those who frequent Florida's gulf coast beaches. I only come here to take photos and walk out on the pier. The last time I was on the pier we saw dolphins and manta rays. On this day I walked away from the pier so that I could get it all in against the sky which was threatening with thunderstorms from the East. And because I was here, I had the whole place to myself.
