On Thursday, we headed to Tiny’s of Longboat Key to ask locals about the signs of summer on Longboat.
“Complete the sentence: You know it’s summer on Longboat when … ”
“You can bowl on Gulf of Mexico Drive … And when every bird walks around like nobody’s here. Nobody is.”
“Roads are empty. Turtles come out every season. I’m retired. Summer is like fall, winter and spring.”
“When I can pull out of my street without having to stop for traffic.”
“There are no people around.”
“There is no traffic and the bar business is slow.”
“You start sweating. Either that, or your beer feels warmer.”
What does summer on Longboat Key mean to you? Leave your comments under reader comments.
