Cover page to slide show Around Anna Maria Island. Calm waters of a canal reflecting palms and boats. Boats are a given part of life here. A hidden dock in the mangroves. Canoes are everywhere. Reflection of the Hump Back Bridge into the canal. A fish hides in the shadow and reflection of a sea grape. Entry to the City Pier. A history of the old pier. The bay view from the pier. The restaurant sitting on the end of the pier. Weathered old planks of the pier. A little bird house perched on a weathered fence. The entry to a little convenience store. Painted adirondack chairs on a porch. An old sign to the Rod & Reel pier.. A colorful store front. A sign for a cafe. Our famous Anna Maria jail house, no windows, no doors. Mourning Doves on a wire. Shadows in the maritime forest.
