I am back from my trip! I went with 3 friends, Cara, Dana & Jen. Cara's uncle has a house on the beach that we were able to stay at for free!! It was in Nokomis, FL, which is by Sarasota on the Gulf of Mexico. The water was warm and clear and great for swimming. It was a wonderful 5 days of lounging on the beach! Though it was the rainy season and so we only got about 2 good hours of sunshine each day, but we had a lot of fun!
