One hour and 10 minutes south of Tampa.
I hopped on I-75, rolled the windows down, blasted the music and cruised to Venice Beach.
The only plans I made were to walk around, sight-see and take photographs of what I found interesting. I arrived at Venice around 4:00 p.m which gave me a few hours of sunlight.
I parked in the Historic District and walked right over to the beach.
The day was beautiful: Eighty degrees, blue skies, light breeze, and the calming sound of the ocean. After walking the shoreline, I headed over to Venice’s inlet where people go to fish, have picnics, and watch the sunset.
There was only half an hour left before the night sky revealed the millions of stars above. I went back to Venice beach to witness the last few minutes of sunset and what I captured is truly an enriching fusion of colors!
And as the night grew, I sat on the sand and listened to the wind hover across the water.
Truly a few beautiful hours spent at Venice Beach, Florida.
