I've looked at clouds from both sides now...
Spending a lazy day doing absolutely nothing on an Anna Maria Island beach is like a tonic for the soul - relaxing, restorative and exhilarating all at the same time. What better place, then, to be a complete slug, plop down in the sand and watch a shifting caravan of towering clouds drift by. It's a lot of work, to be sure.
But somebody's gotta do it. Rough life.
