First, amazing sunny yet cool and crisp days, each stretching out a tad longer so that those precious few moments of daylight before the sun disappears are like gifts. Then, just as we’re feeling like the luckiest people in the civilized world just by virtue of our zip codes, we are reminded that Sarasota also is a city of philanthropic, hard-rocking, motorcycle loving people.
