And another thing…

It is a pity to ignore the noticeable details of this place. A lifetime of dedication to introversion lends the risk of error. The calculation is not that the local ingredients are negligible rather that one’s internal mechanism more generally characterizes attitude and state of being. This is a mistake. Longboat Key is not just background. ¬†Neither has it the contrived and almost spooky appearance which sometimes insinuates Hilton Head Island. ¬†Longboat Key – though it certainly maintains its own indulgent attributes – has a more obvious architectural freedom and expression. The extent of novelty in turn contributes a dynamic of adventure which enlarges the overall acquaintance. The famous Floridian coastal cloud banks amount to a vast, magnificent and perpetually changing (often by the minute) panorama.

Because the main road on the island is Gulf of Mexico Drive (which by design is located precisely in the centre of the land mass) it requires attention to the minutiae on the edge of this route to appreciate what is here. Neither is it an accident that the numerous beach access points are so discrete as to seem deliberately hidden from view.
