“The main bay in Sarasota”

Sarasota Bay is a lagoon located off the west coast of Florida in the United States. Though no significant single stream of freshwater enters the bay, with a drainage basin limited to 150 square miles in Manatee and Sarasota Counties,[1] it is generally treated as an estuary, with three "passes" or inlets, giving access from the Gulf of Mexico. Its source of freshwater has been increased from natural historical levels by urban surface runoff.

Rented kayaks from the Yacht Club for an afternoon (though I think you need to be a member - we were with one) and spent some time kayaking around the smaller islands in the bay. Calm waters made for easy canoeing and there were plenty of bird life to look at, as well as dozens of mansions to nose at around the bay.
