I arrived in Sarasota last Thursday around noon,
So we drove directly to the island's beautiful town center, St. Armands Circle,
Romaine had the original Cuban sandwich made with layers of ham, salami, marinated roast pork, swiss cheese, and mustard pressed between the freshest, most delicious warm bread, slightly crisp on the top but soft in the middle, served with a side of thin, crunchy, yummy plantains. She also had a side of fresh gazpacho, which is a thin tomato and vegetable soup served cold.
We then returned to Lido Key Beach and our bungalow at the Beau Lido from where we walked to the beach to catch the sun set,
