Marco Island

Marco Island is on the southern tip of Florida on the Gulf side.  We rented a beachfront condo at Sea Winds  last winter.

I love renting a condo right on the beach because it places us at ground zero for our vacation goals:  morning coffee on a balcony over looking at the ocean, jog along the ocean, nap and read on the beach, ocean side cocktails, observe boats and wildlife, fall asleep listening to the ocean.

On one of our "out and about" days, we visited the Conservancy of Southwestern Florida's Nature Center and took a boat tour.  We also drove around town to look at some of the mansions.

I would go back to Marco Island in a heart beat.  It's pretty much everything I need - white sand beaches, beautiful tropical landscape, ocean animals...    In my first Marco Island painting, I wanted to remember hanging out on the dock and watching the wildlife.
