We played tennis on the city's clay courts and saw where Chris Evert learned to play. We had lunch at many of the great restaurants off the inter coastal waterway and just drove around looking at the homes with a dock in the back yard to see what size of boat they had. Any one else do this? :-) We'll be back again next year. It really has been too long.
