Jim & Sue met on Siesta Key beach in the Spring of 2007.
One of the best things about living here is sharing this wonderful, gorgeous beach with all my treasured friends & family who just keep on coming!
I've been coming to Siesta Key since I was a young child, visiting with my grandparents and other family who have had homes on Crescent Beach since the 1960's. I've walked that beautiful stretch of beach a million times. Fate intervened one sunset walk when Jim paused on his bike and we strolled together to take in the Sunday drum circle.
Moving here from Canada, I retired from my position as college prof and happily transitioned to an unexpected new career - vacation rental owner/manager. Jim, who had long left his home state of Michigan, continues to help restaurant and retail business owners by providing them with point of sales systems.
As newlyweds, we lived in our Ebb Tide condo for almost a year before finding our home. It was great fun getting the cottage "just right" and transforming it to an ideal vacation rental. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at our little beach bungalow, and I hope that you, too, enjoy everything it offers!
We married in Ottawa, Ontario in the Fall of 2008.
