An Anna Maria Island Thanksgiving is just like any other. Just like most, we take time to give thanks so we thought we would take a few minutes to do that here. Here are some of the things for which we are thankful:
Living in Paradise
Who doesn’t love Anna Maria Island? Anyone can agree that vacationing here is awesome. Living here is that much better. We are grateful for living in paradise.
Soft, White Sandy Beach
There is nothing else to say about the soft, white sandy beach. There is nothing quite as wonderful as spending time on the beach – even if it is for only a few minutes!
A Laid-Back Lifestyle
Have you ever heard of “living on island time?” Well, Anna Maria Island offers a laid-back lifestyle. It’s relaxed and easy going.
A Close-Knit Community
There is nothing like the close-knit community of residents on Anna Maria Island. As the community becomes more and more a resort area, we don’t see each other as much but when we do, we are so glad to have the friends we do.
Several Pairs of Flip Flops
Instead of having a plethora of shoes in our closets, we have several pairs of flip flops; a pair for every occasion. Oh, and did we mention our flip flop tan lines?
Let’s just say the sunsets never get old. We might get complacent about watching them every night, but they never get old.
Water on All Sides
Whether it’s the Bay, the canals, or the massive Gulf of Mexico, living on an island means water on all sides. Yep – this is paradise.
OK – so you can get fish and other seafood at Publix and that’s fine. But why get seafood from Chile or another country when you can get fresh seafood right out of the water? It is so much better and if you like to fish, it feels satisfying to catch dinner.
It is easy to go on and on about why we love it here. For us an Anna Maria Island Thanksgiving is so much more than turkey and all the trimmings. It’s our chance to say thank you to you — our guests — who make it possible for us to be part of this fabulous island. It’s also our chance to say thank you for allowing us to help you have the best vacation ever!
Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!
