Chilly Weather, Sand, Sand and More Sand
Regular readers of this blog know that sometimes my Sarasota realtor, allows me to make a post. She didn't exactly know how to describe our latest adventure so I volunteered to share our story. My realtor's oldest son, Bill, invited us to camp out in Vero Beach this past weekend at the dirt bike races. At least, I think that's where we were. The entire weekend reminded me of the Andy Griffith record "What it Was Was Football," and if you never heard that record, buy it! I didn't get a big orange drink but my realtor and Bill ate enough barbeque that they certainly could have shared and they didn't.
Bill has childhood friends from West Virginia that we hung out with, and when they played the National Anthem at the start of the races, my realtor got teary eyed because it reminded her of Bill's sporting activities as a child.
All the patriotism and family love in that field was just a bit moving for the old girl.
I had a great perch in the Jeep and met five dashounds, a pit bull, a Lab puppy and a pretty big Great Dane. The races are dog friendly, but the hotels are not.
This is an expensive sport, not only do you need a motor bike or four-wheeler, but then you need extra wheels, chains, tools, tents and other "things." Of course, a motor home is a must! This is a great famly sport, girls and boys participate as well as parents, even if they are 40 plus. Can you believe it?
I was very impressed with how the parents supported and encouraged their children, the big kids help the little kids, the overall friendliness of this very competitive sport. My realtor is a spectator sports nut, and she loved hanging out in the sand pit, meeting new friends: Eric & Michelle, with their children Chase & Brice and niece, Jordan. Visiting with Steve, Kelly Jo and their children: Sam and Austin was just wonderful.
West Virginians come to Florida for the sun and sand. There was plenty of sand at this event. I had sand in my feet, mouth, eyes and probably a lot of parts I don't know I have it in. If you are tired of looking at Sarasota real estate in this buyer's market, you might want a little more action. Take in the races at Vero Beach next year or click here for more Sarasota real estate news on our other blog.
Until the next time I get to post, your Sarasota pooch is signing off!
