Evening Ringling Bridge Walk

We will be walking the bridge tonight , under the bridge at Bird Key , and back.  The sun should be setting on our return and it is a great time of day to catch some pictures. Following our return lets hang out at O'Learys Tiki Bar for a cool down beverage and some music. Wear comfortable shoes! Meet at the Sailor Statue. This will be the last walk of the "Sarasota Walkers Season", we will be resuming walks again in October.  If any of you wish to plan and host a walk,send me an email, and I will post it. I will not be at this walk, but I will be there in spirit.  Thanks to all who have made this a great year of walks and talks.

      Tom, so sorry to hear that. You know that our walks take about an hour, so maybe you could join us at O'Leary's after, even if you don't walk. Show up about 9 PM and save us a table.

    I would be interested in Siesta Walks, but it would have to be around 6:30 or 7 AM.

    I had to miss it last night but would be interested in doing another at any time with anyone--either that time, later in the evening, or early in the morning. (I used to watch the sunrise in Nashville while meditating and then walk. It is beautiful then.)

    One of the best walks of the year. Great group of wonderful people.
    Got a chance to meet some new people and renewed friendships
    with others. O'Leary's was a plus to a fantastic evening.
    Thanks everyone

    20+ walkers came out to enjoy the walk...many of them first-timers not only to our meetup but to the Sarasota area. Great to meet them. They want to try another evening walk at an even later time.

    My daughter is nervous about bring her daughter in the stroller or carry on over the bridge, so we are going to walk the park, and maybe meet you all for food/drink afterward.

    It is difficult to say what the coastal area will present to us over where we are Gina. I'm going to ride over... if it looks bad, I will drive back..... lol

      There is ample parking near the statue. Go to GoogleMaps and check out the area. You will see lots of parking available!

    New to the club and looking forward to walking the bridge with everyone (even if it’s the last walk of the season).

  • Rosemary S.

    I made a mistake and thought it was last night and showed up at the statue at seven, to see only tourists! Now I see that it is the 27th--DUH! Anyway, there was a breeze on the bridge, the setting sun glinted off the water, an egret posed for me and I treated myself to a glass of wine afterward and saw the "super moon"start to rise...so, not so bad. Looking forward to some company next time, though!

  • Sue S.

      Patricia! Welcome to Sarasota! You must get a map and a gps and get out and explore this beautiful area. When I moved here, I would just get in the car and drive and drive and drive. I stumbled upon things and got an orientation of what direction I needed to head! Just do it! You will enjoy yourself and your new home! :-)
