We went and saw Michael Winslow tonight at McCurdy's Comedy Theater in Sarasota. He was really funny and did some great skits. It's amazing that he can make all those sounds!

He was so personable after the show when we got pictures and autographs. We went and got prints beforehand that we wanted signed, but he had professional 8x10's available to autograph too. He's in town all weekend at McCurdy's if you want to check 'em out.

We went to the Kona Bar at McKecknie Field. On non-game Wednesdays they have drink specials from 5p-6:30p ($2-3 beers) and ladies drink FREE from 5:30p-6:30p. They also have cornhole that you can play on the boardwalk.

Went to see what "City Park" was here on Anna Maria Island. I think that's just the generic placeholder, because this is just a normal stretch of beach and no park. I polled some beach goers and several told me it is known as "Jones Beach".

There were no restrooms, shower facilities or any structure of any kind. I don't even recall a trashcan. The beach is clean and there weren't a lot of people when we were here. We'll return here eventually, but there are a lot of other beaches nearby that we still want to try.

Note that there isn't much parking, maybe enough for 10 vehicles.

Abandoned go cart track. It was called Fun City back when I was a kid. My parents threw me a birthday party here. Pretty different looking now that it's been closed for around 16 years.

We went to see Nik Wallenda train for his tightrope walk across the Grand Canyon today at Nathan Benderson Park in Sarasota. It was raining when we arrived and most folks were leaving. Soon it poured heavily for 20+ minutes while everyone huddled in the tent. Nik was friendly and tried to keep everyone laughing as we waited the rain out. One poor soul got his SUV stuck in the mud  and had to have a tow truck help 'em.

Panoramic shot from our trip to the abandoned go cart track today. My parents threw a birthday party here for me once when I was a kid. The best parts were the S curve and the little bit of air you got going over the bridge at full throttle. I think the location was just bad though and nothing has taken it's place. 

As we were leaving some kids arrived with skateboards and started skating the old track.
