OK, before I tell you, do you know what the title of this article means? I will give you a hint. We are in Sarasota Florida. No? How about a picture:
Now you know.
Yep. Ringling Brothers Barnum & Baily Circus Museum. We thought we would spend a couple hours here, then spend the rest of the day at Siesta Key, because I liked the name, and then watch the sunset.
Wrong, we spend 6 hours on the Museum grounds before they kicked us out for closing. We never got to the Art Museum of John Ringling, which is supposed to be one of the best collections on the East Coast for European art.
And his home:
Look, I learned another new thing, a slide show.
As was expected, it was lavishly designed and furnished
with multicolored windows to give each room a different hue

Not enough room to put up and down.
After being kicked out, we went to Lido Key. Lots of Birds.

Then eat them, take off, and repeat the process. Sorry you can’t hear Barbara doing the sound effects for the dive:
— yee-alm —- boom.
Meanwhile, down a little way, sail boats were coming in for the evening, when one tipped over
They eventually righted themselves and made it safely to shore.
And so ends another broadcast day.
