Sun 'N Fun

After reading that the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, FL was having an exhibit on loan from the Brooklyn Museum of Egyptian art, we decided to take the RV down there for a few days. The RV resort we selected was Sun 'N Fun, in Sarasota and just off I-75. The resort was a real treat. Immaculate and well-designed, it offered a busy schedule of hobbies, all held in several buildings dedicated to a particular craft, ie. wood shop, pottery, etc. It has a large heated pool and two over-sized spas, all surrounded with lavish tropical gardens. We'll definitely be returning.

The Ringling Museum is on the grounds of the Cã d'Zan mansion, shown here. The tour of the mansion was worth the trip. To see the beautiful rooms and to picture the Ringlings and their family and friends living or partying there gave us a memorable picture of the wealthy lives led by these famous Americans.
