These photographs were taken while visiting beautiful Anna Maria Island. The island is a barrier island located off the coast of Manatee County, Florida.The restaurant featured above is called Sign of the Mermaid, and it is quite possibly one of the most romantic places I have ever eaten dinner..and I have had the pleasure of eating at some great places. I ordered the orange blossom baked brie with blue crab cakes. The dishes were amazing and the service was fantastic. I highly recommend it!
