Jonathan Poyner, the county’s coordinator of events on Siesta Key Public Beach, and his wife, Christine, marked their 20th wedding anniversary Dec. 28 with a big trip — to Hawaii.
Although Hawaii long has been known as a honeymoon spot, the Poyners felt it would be the perfect place to celebrate. After all, even though the Siesta beach holds the No. 1 title on Dr. Beach’s list, Hawaii has had its share of beaches making headlines through the years.
“Great memory. Hawaii was fantastic,” Jonathan said in an email, but so far, he hasn’t offered any specifics on how those Pacific shores compare with our Gulf of Mexico shoreline on Siesta.
